From Tracy Wood

Aw, nuts. Hadn't talked to Jerry in years but somehow assumed he always would be in Sacramento, gently and humorously advising all associated with state government--legislators, staff, the governor and lobbyists--as well as news colleagues. Jerry helped me learn how to cover the Capitol and he was one of the most decent people in the business, a true professional. I'll miss knowing he's in Sacramento, but I bet he and Squire Behrens--the press corps "deans"--will be watching from some empyrean news room, with laughter, wise cracks and affection.
