Jerry grew up in Clovis, and was a 1982 graduate of Clovis High School where he was on the baseball team as shortstop, and was the quarterback and defensive corner in football. Following graduation he worked for a time at the Levi Straus plant in Clovis and later at Clovis Glass and Mirror.

Jerry enjoyed playing softball and playing horseshoes. While he was in the Marine Corps, Jerry was on the rodeo team, and was ranked 4th in the world in bull riding in the Military Rodeo Association. In his civilian life, Jerry coached a number of youth football, baseball and basketball teams. He was a member of the Eastside Church of Christ in Clovis.
He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Tommy and Jasmine Wimberly of Jacksonville, NC; two daughters and a son-in-law, Jessica and Raymond Lopez of Kingsland, GA and Serenity Wimberly of Lubbock; two grandchildren, Ayla Lopez and Abel Lopez; his mother, Patsy Roberts of Texico; and a sister, Vickie (Don) Roberts of Texico and numerous nieces and nephews.
