    Very honest , straightforward and a simple man, and Im sure all his projects reflect his good qualities.
    Had met him once in a function many years ago.

    Our region has many great and good builders, he belongs to the former category, due the quality and consistency in his projects.
    Despite being such a stalwart builder, his humbleness and simplicity is exemplary.
    wishing Dr.Jerry all the very best
