There is so much talent and there exist so many possibilities for success in Arkansas. Often, folks just need some help to get things started. I can’t wait to start making a positive difference for my neighbors and fellow Arkansans.” Born in Little Rock and raised in North Central Arkansas, Jerry has called Arkansas home for most of his professional career, and currently makes his home in Fayetteville.
