Jerold I. Sturner

March 3, 1949 ~ November 11, 2018 (age 69)

Jerry Sturner passed away peacefully at the Casey House (Montgomery Hospice) on Sunday evening, November 11th, 2018. Jerry was born on March 3, 1949. Jerry will be remembered by his wife Terry, married 19 years today. He is also survived by his mother, Esther, his brother Ray (Barbara), and his step sons, Richard (Ellen) and Chris (Brooke) Berry. Jerry will be missed by his extended family, nieces and nephews, and friends.

Few knew that Jerry attended the University of Maryland on a Clarinet scholarship. After not playing for many years, he began taking lessons again after he retired in 2011. Although Jerry never played in public in his later years, he was a very talented musician.  In 1973, Jerry started his company, Sturner & Klein, in his apartment, after working for a similar company and realizing his unique talent for connecting with people over the phone.  Shy by nature, it was a perfect choice.  He built the company into a very successful national  firm over the next 37 years, with offices in Rockville, Boise, Idaho and Flagstaff, Arizona.  Jerry became known for his loyalty to his customers, his friends and his employees.  His high moral standards never faltered and his character and hard work helped him achieve success and some of the highest honors in his field of telemarketing.  Jerry’s passion for his work came second to his passion for his family and friends, all of whom will miss his friendship, his great sense of humor, his intellect, his love of life, and his extraordinary generosity.

Services will be held at the Judean Gardens in Olney, starting at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday morning, November 14th.  Immediately following the services, guests are invited to join the family at Manor Country Club for a celebration of Jerry’s life (14901 Carrolton Rd, Rockville, MD 20853). Those who so desire may make memorial donations in Jerry’s name to the Casey House (Montgomery Hospice) -
