Obituary - JEROME (JERRY) SCHWARTZ

 

February 16, 2024



In loving memory of Jerry Schwartz, age 86, who passed away on Jan. 31, 2024. He was a beloved father to Nancy, David, and Randi, and a cherished grandfather to Quinn, Dylan, Isabella, and Sierra. He is pre-deceased by his loving wife Eileen.

Born on March 3, 1937, Jerry’s life unfolded as a vibrant tapestry, from his early days as a professional tap dancer to becoming a show booker in his 20s and 30s. His culinary ingenuity shone through the creation of the renowned Imperial Smoked Meats.

Retiring as a medical courier, Jerry’s zest for life led him to relish travel, cruises, and the joy of fixing watches and clocks. A proud Army veteran, he found solace in the melodies of musicals and big bands, always eager to share his captivating stories.

Jerry’s legacy extends beyond the stage and kitchen; he assisted in crafting the gardening tool, The Rollabagger, and approached life with a childlike wonder that left an indelible mark on those around him. May his memory be a source of inspiration, and may he rest in eternal peace. 

Graveside Service with military honors were held at Temple Israel Cemetery (9200 Morton Jones Road, Gotha, FL) with Rabbi Arnold Siegel of Jewish Family Services officiating.

Service entrusted to Beth Shalom Memorial Chapel, 933 Lee Road, Suite 101, Orlando, Florida 407-599-1180.
