A Jerry Fan

Like so many, I too was saddened by the news of Jerry's passing. I did not know Jerry well, but I was one of the many who benefited from his incredible generosity. Jerry was a member of my dissertation committee (though I was not a student at Arizona). Everyone I knew who knew him well always expressed some level of dismay at how he managed to find the time to do everything he did. I heard this frequently enough that it made me very shy about bothering him with any questions. Nevertheless, not long after emailing a copy of my mediocre dissertation to Jerry, I received a physical copy by snail mail from him. He had printed the entire thing and marked it up in pen. The philosophical community has lost a true gentleman.
