Jerry has been playing wheelchair tennis since 1989. After a motorcycle accident in 1987 he found wheelchair tennis as the competitive outlet he looked for, but also as a great recreation sport to enjoy as well. 

Over the years he had much success, a 3 time U.S. Open Doubles Champion, considers himself a doubles specialist but enjoys singles too. Jerry currently works as a Compliance Director at a securities firm. As a co-founder of WCWTA, he started this non profit to give back and show others what he has experienced from wheelchair tennis.
