Jerry, We Will Miss You.

Jerry Wilcox, NAMI Lowcountry’s volunteer extraordinaire, died on Tuesday, May 14, 2019.  He will be sorely missed by all those who knew him.

Jerry was a NAMI Beaufort County fixture when I was hired in 2009.  He was funny, smart, full of energy and a great admirer of the ladies.  He was also a wonderful ambassador for NAMI, spending time generously with members in hospitals or assisted living facilities to listen to their stories and tell some of his own. He volunteered every year for our NAMIWalks Lowcountry and loved talking to many of the young people who stopped by to chat.  Jerry was a born entertainer and we will miss the twinkle in his eye.

A Celebration of Jerry’s Life will be held this Wednesday, May 22nd at 11 am at The Island Funeral Home, 4 Cardinal Road, Hilton Head 29926.  In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation can be made to Hilton Head Humane SocietyPO Box 21790, Hilton Head, SC 29925.

-Sarah Eliasoph, NAMI Lowcountry Executive Director
