My son, you were the light of my life. I am heart-broken and I will never be the same without your presence. here on earth. Hope you were met with my mom and your grandfather that you never met. Your were smart, handsome, and caring. Always looking out for other people. You had a weird sense of humor but that was what made you unique. I know this is not the way you wanted it to turn out but I guess God had other plans. I will love you forever and ever. Rest in Peace, no worries anymore. Till we meet again my love.

I may not have met you in person, only through facebook, but I can surely say that there are less laughs in the world without you here, as well as one less voice of reason against a tide of tyrannical stupidity.

Gone far too soon, Jerry. May the laughs and memories of your time with us bring some comfort to those who love you. My thoughts & heart pour out to your family. Be at peace, now.

Jerry is already missed by so many. I am not sure anyone realizes how many lives they have touched in a positive way. Jerry was one of those people. Although I only knew him a short time, he quicky found his way to my heart. I loved him like family. Such a precious soul. Rest with peace sweet, kind gentle hearted Jerry.

Not a day went by the last few years when I hadn’t laughed at your thoughts and musings on my feed. While we only hung out a few times, you were a good man who helped me feel like I belonged. All of your brothers and sisters in the Empire will miss you.

I loved Jerry more than life itself. He was my entire world for more than 3 years and I thought we would grow old together. He was the love of my life and my very best friend. I don’t know if my heart will ever fully recover because I will miss and love him eternally. You are free from the pain now, snugs *muahs*

I knew Jerry almost all my life. He was a great friend. He was there for me more times than i can count. His ability to bring humor into any and all situations made it so fun to be around him, and was truly inspiring. Wether a funny face. Physical action or some sharp quip or sentence that made no sense, Jerry would always get a laugh out of you. I looked up to Jerry. His emotion and passion for life was refreshing, and the way he attacked his pursuits was something i try to do this day. I learned from, laughed with and will always love Jerry

I will always rememberJerry as a true loyal friend to my son, Dominic. As his mother be very proud, he always treated me with the deepest respect! I loved him for who he was - his mischievous smile, his unique personality and genuineness. Jerry was truly one of a kind - a very special kind hearted loving free spirit! I will remember him fondly with a mother's deepest gratitude for sharing his incredible gift of friendship and creating everlasting memories with my son. My lasting memory of Jerry will be as a handsome groomsman in Dominic's wedding. Jerry was a REAL friend! A true friend is a treasured gift! Thank you Jerry for sharing your special gift with my son! I am forever grateful!

There were many things that bonded Jerry and I over the 20 years I was fortunate enough to call him my friend. To know him was to love him, even when you were the punchline of his joke, because if you were it meant he loved you back. His true laugh came from deep inside and was as infectious as a yawn. Hearing it meant you had no choice but to laugh right along with of him. I will miss the memories we will never create and cherish the ones we already have. RIP my fallen friend, until we meet again.

To Jerry's Mother, Father, and Family:

To Jerry’s family, my deepest condolences. I can’t begin to imagine the hurt that you’re all feeling. I’ve practically known Jerry my entire life. I have so many fond memories that began at grammar school which I have been replaying in my head over and over again. I have been sharing stories and reminiscing about all the memories we’ve made all these years. For instance, the infamous night during Memorial Day weekend down the shore on the balcony of the Adirmal Hotel. If you were there you would definitely remember that night. I can still hear Jerry laughing from inside the room listening to all the jokes that were made. That night your nickname “Cizz” was made.

A quote that sums up Jerry'a life, comes from his mother Mary Lou. "Jerry never hurt anyone but himself." I reflected on this and realized, Jerry never hurt anyone but would go out of his way to help anyone. One of Jerry's best qualities, was his loyalty to his friends. He was always the first to pick you up and drive you home or sit down and listen to you. Jerry was always there for me when I was down, with no judgement. Like others said, Jerry was also my best friend. That's how good of a person he was. There were many who would consider Jerry to be their best friend. Jerry was the life of the party and could talk to anyone about anything. He could fit in anywhere. A quality I admire of Jerry and try to emulate to this day. He could bring different groups of people together, no matter what the situation. A great summer memory I have was when our player/coach Jerry Cizz spent one spring, putting together an adult softball team made of up of friends, misfits and spare parts. Winning the league was second to the amount of time and laughs we had together. I was so fortunate to see Jerry, at our HS reunion this past November, and spent a lot of time catching up with him. He was better than ever. He never let what was going on in his personal life come through. He was smiling, laughing and generally happy. I know he'll be missed because we can't stop talking about the memories we had with Cizz and we won't stop. I know Jerry had an ever lasting impression on me and for all of us in his crew. I love you Jerry Cizz and I'll never forgot you.

To Jerrys mom and family I can't even begin to tell you how sorry I am. I am sending you all my love, strength, and prayers.

Jerry I'm gonna miss you pal... Your friendships was something that couldn't be defined... Everytime we got together it tuned into a bunch of laughs that echoes throughout the years... I'm glad we started building those memories since childhood....

Cizz, Too many memories to write in this small space. You introduced me to the late night McDonald’s Run. Trips to shows with my brother Dominic, especially Pearl Jam in 2006 at Continental. Times spent smoking endless cigarettes and talking about The Yankees and A’s. I’ll never forget you helping me BIG time in 2004 when I needed someone. I’ll
