On January 1st, Jerry went to the hospital for what he thought was pneumonia, he was having a heart attack. He'd had it a few days previous and didn't know it, and it gave 2 clots time to harden. The original doctors that worked on him couldn't remove the clots, and he was rushed to Summerlin Hospital ICU. He was doing well for a few days, and last night around 11pm, he went back into cardiac arrest. He was coded, but the doctors were able to bring him back. He's in currently in critical condition, and there's talk of having to airlift him to a completely different state for advanced surgery. The medical costs are already through the roof with insurance, and will only get higher as more time passes. Please, help me help my mom save the love of her life. Help me help my sisters save their dad. Jerry had been a paramedic well over 30 years and saved so many lives, and now we need help to save his. Anything will help, no matter how small.

Unfortunately, Jerry passed away today from complications. Thank all of you so much for everything you've done, I know it would have meant a lot to him. We wanted to show him all of the support so badly. We still need help, if anyone still can. We still have to bring his body back home and arrange his services. Thank you.

So sorry for your loss. I am one of Jerry's 100+ cousins. I may have met him at a family reunion but I'm not sure. Doesn't matter, he's family. I've been following his story on Facebook. I am the daughter of Tom Fandel's sister Alice Flock. May God comfort you at this time.
