In Memoriam: Jerry M. Adams, 1959-2018

Jerry M. Adams, a former classroom technology instructor in university media services at the University of Delaware passed away in St. Francis Hospital in Wilmington, Delaware, on November 26, 2018. He was 58 years old.

“All of us who worked with Jerry here in IT-University Media Services are saddened to hear of his sudden passing,” said Carl Asti, director of IT Media Services. “He held several roles during his five-plus years here, but, if nothing else, he was an ambassador for both the department and the University of Delaware as a whole.” Adams had retired from his role at the university in 2012.

“Jerry Adams was one of the two or three natural leaders with whom I have had the privilege of working,” said Tom LaPenta, retired chief human resources officer. “He was a natural motivator who inspired and enabled co-workers and managers to strive to achieve great things. Jerry was a friend, counselor and coach to hundreds of people. He will be sorely missed.”
