Jerry Hanover- Friend of Museum Passes

 

 

 

 

The Fire Museum of Memphis lost a good friend on May 5, 2015. Mr. Jerry Hanover, Emeritus Board Member of the Fire Museum of Memphis, passed away. Jerry was one of our original board members, and first Chairman of the Board, working alongside the Memphis Fire Department, ensuring the museum was built and establishing us as a 501c-3 non-profit and LLC. He continued that support for over 20 years in the dedicated spirit he was known for. Jerry had a heart for Memphis Firefighters and for our underserved population, supporting our efforts to open our doors free of charge to all Shelby County Schools, K-12, including bus transportation reimbursement, in order to impact a fire fatality rate that was two and one half times the national average, when the concept of a fire museum in Memphis was conceived, in the early ‘90’s. Executive Vice President at Belz Enterprises, Jerry was our dear friend. You will be missed, Mr. Jerry Hanover, but always remembered…
