Jerald (Jerry) Wayne Offer

Jerald (Jerry) Wayne Offer was born on April 13, 1997 to Mother, Karen Sue Kearly and Father, Jeffery Lynn Offer in San Antonio, Texas. He passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at his residence minutes from the hospital that helped bring him into this world.

Jerry was raised in Liberty County, Texas from the age of ten. At the same age, he welcomed Stephen Lewis Kearly, his step-father, into his life as a father figure. He was extremely proud of his two sisters, Emily Daun Offer and Lilianna Adel McNutt, and admired his loving mother.

Jerry graduated from Liberty High School in 2015. After graduation, he went on to work for Flour Daniels before enlisting in the United States Army as a 68W, combat medic. As his military contract was nearing an end, he applied to and was accepted to a number of Texas universities; one of which was a medical program. Jerry intended to continue his pursuit of education in the medical field.

Jerry was an ambitious, motivated, and well-liked man with plans to help who he could. He had words and a heart that could heal like no other.

Jerry was the best kind of friend. He was always provoking fun in every single scenario. He was inclusive and open-minded, even if he didn’t understand you, he was there to love you and ensure a good time. His witty jokes constantly kept people in good spirits; he had a quirky and playful sense of humor that made people smile. He was very protective and took good care of his sisters whom were very close to him. Jerry spent the majority of his recent time with his dog, Cooper, and cat, Cali. He found training and caring for his animals gave him a great amount of joy.

Those who were lucky to have spent any amount of time with Jerry know how much of an impact he made on this world. His sense of loyalty and integrity was contagious; if he loved you, he would always love and protect you. The world has lost an amazing life, and is truly a lesser place without him.

  1. “Those who were lucky to have spent any amount of time with Jerry…”. I am one who was lucky enough to know Jerry. I am so saddened to hear and so sorry for the family. Jerry was in a math class I taught at LHS and I got to know him through that experience. A delightful young man, who rose to the occasion when challenged, and I enjoyed teaching him. Each time I saw him outside of class and after our year together in class he was the same considerate, nice, humorous person he had always been. May God’s blessings be on you and yours as you grieve and mourn his loss. -Robert Ward
