Jerry Jean-Baptiste — A Celebration of Life
7PM, Monday, July 17th
St. Andrew's Wesley United Church
1022 Nelson Street (At Burrard)
Thank you to everyone for your patience in waiting for Jerry's memorial service to be announced. As we all know, Jerry was loved by so many people and we sincerely felt the need to have the ceremony held at the largest possible church in downtown Vancouver. This will undoubtedly be a heavy-hearted day that we all will share with Jerry's spirit. We wanted to make certain that we were able to feasibly fit everyone into whichever church we decided on so that everyone would have their opportunity to show their respects to Jerry.
*Please feel free to share this FB event and invite with whomever you feel would like to attend and show their love for Jerry.
In honour of Jerry's vibrant and positive nature, we hope that everyone is able to see this memorial as a celebration of life and we respectfully ask that those attending wear their finest suits or dresses with accents of vibrant colours to exemplify Jerry's nature.
Many of you have asked if there is anything that you can do to help. Thank you for all your support. If you would like to contribute please feel free to post on the wall below and one of the organizers will contact you should there be a need.
Please note that we are expecting hundreds of people to attend Jerry's Celebration of Life Memorial Service. In light of this please do your best to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the 7PM service.
There will be two guest books made available for everyone to sign and say whatever is on their mind. These books will not be traditionally placed at the main entrance but at strategic areas inside the church to avoid causing any sort of bottle neck for people coming into the church.
Fundraiser Get-Together | Aura | 1180 Granville Street | Doors 9PM
Following the memorial ceremony we will be opening Aura to provide an opportunity for all of Jerry's friends to gather, therapeutically socialize and remember our amazing friend Jerry. There will be a 'by donation' entrance fee and 100% of all door and alcohol proceeds from the evening will be going to Jerry's daughters' education trust fund. We would love to be able to show his daughters how loved and respected Jerry was by his friends. Undoubtedly, at some point later in their lives, they will both be able to appreciate this gesture and understand what high regard we all had for Jerry.
Rest In Peace Jerry. We Love You.
