He was born on January 7, 1974 in Jacksonville, Arkansas the oldest son of Jerry Sr. and Cynthia (Allen) Boone.
A lifelong resident of the North Little Rock, Arkansas area, Jerry graduated from Oak Grove High School and went on to attend Pulaski Technical College for computers and IT management.
Jerry tried his hand at many careers during his life, but mostly enjoyed any job that allowed him to work with people. He enjoyed being a cook; working at several restaurants over the years, and was known for his ability to prepare some of the best “country food” around.
He was a fourth-generation member of the Baring Cross Baptist Church in N. Little Rock, Arkansas; where he grew up attending services with his family.
In his spare time he enjoyed playing dominoes, mastering a new x-box game, or practicing martial arts. He grew up in a fishing family and appreciated both freshwater and saltwater fishing with those that he loved. He loved trips to Branson, Mo. and attended just about every theme park in Florida throughout the years. Jerry had a wide music taste; being a fan of ICP but also would stop and listen to anything by Garth Brooks, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and especially “Gambling Man”. Jerry will be remembered most for his incredibly giving heart; providing whatever he had to others even when what he had was not that much.
