Jerry Thomas Jarrett was the eldest of six children born to Lawrence V. Jarrett and Rosie B. Jarrett on October 26, 1954, in Ripley, Tennessee.
He entered wedded bliss with Theresa A. Jarrett on December 15, 1984, and to this union they joined together five children: Bernard (Anisa) Tucker, LaKeia Rich-Jarrett, Marques (Lisa) Burnett, Kharnicia (Sidney) Hines, and Avanti Jarrett (Jeremy) Brown.
Jerry's love for Christ was shown daily, not only by the life he led, but also by the many lives that he touched.
He started off his education at Carrie Gosch School in East Chicago, followed by Roosevelt High School in East Chicago. After his family relocated, he attended Hammond High School and went on to pursue his undergraduate degree from Langston University in Oklahoma. He then received his law degree from Valparaiso University and was a loyal member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. He practiced law for over twenty years and in the later years of his life, worked as an Executive Relations Case Manager.
Jerry was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents. He was adored and loved by many, but will especially be missed by his loving and devoted wife, Theresa A. Jarrett; five children, Bernard (Anisa) Tucker, LaKeia Rich-Jarrett, Marques (Lisa) Burnett, Kharnicia (Sydney) Hines, and Avanti Jarrett (Jeremy) Brown; eleven grandchildren, Andrew Mills, Desmond Brown, Armand Nunziato, Jaliyha Brown, Ava Nunziato, Zarria Jarrett, Jakolbi Ratcliff, Angela Brown, Kelly Brown, Bentley Hines, and Jeremy Brown, Jr.; siblings, Randy (Sheila) Jarrett, Dennis (Pam) Jarrett, Lawrence M. Jarrett, Tracey (Roland) Cusic, and Darrin Jarrett; extended family; Sylvester (Iva), Smith, Keith Smith, Alexius (Malcolm) Barber, Vernon (Ceona) Smith and LeTerra Smith (Edlin); and a host of nieces, nephews, godchildren; and many other relatives and friends.
