December 23, 1938 ~ January 29, 2021

Joe Jerome, a resident of Denham Springs, LA passed away at his home at the age of 82 on

Friday, January 29, 2021.  Joe was born on  December 23, 1938 in New York, raised in the

St. Amant, LA area and then moving with his family to Denham Springs.  He married

Jeanette Young on September 28, 1958. Joe & Jeanette raised their children at Eden Baptist

Church, where he served as a deacon. The family were active members serving the Lord.

He served 6 years in the U. S. Air Force, performing his duties as an “AP” Air Force Police.

He served his country’s interests on the continent of Africa. After leaving the military, Joe became

a Master Carpenter by trade.  He enjoyed bass fishing & fly fishing but, in later years he immensely

enjoyed watching a variety of sports on television: hockey, soccer, rugby, and car racing

(not NASCAR-too many rules, lol).  Joe loved and cared for his family beyond compare.

He was always ready to assist (perform mostly) in home repairs, building porches, &

remodeling for all of his children & grandchildren.  He was truly kind, extremely funny

and sometimes grouchy and impatient, but loved for all of these traits!  Joe Jerome is
