Jerome D. Muhlenberg, born and raised in Pennsylvania and a longtime resident of Upper Nyack, passed away on May 18. He is survived by his wife, Marsha Kellar, and his sons, David (Tiffany); Sven (Jessica); Henry (Sandy); Peter (Cindy); Daniel; and 9 grandchildren. He leaves behind his older brother, John (Elizabeth), of Chicago, Illinois.
Jerry earned an MBA from the University of Southern California and an MA in education from Manhattanville College. He worked as a teacher of children with special needs for a number of years and especially enjoyed working with children on an individual basis. One of his greatest gifts was the ability to connect with other people and he served as a volunteer for Hospice in Westchester and Rockland Counties.
Jerry also had a lifelong interest in the use of alternative sources of energy and worked in the heating and cooling industry in New York City.
A memorial celebration of Jerry's life is being planned for later in the summer. Donations can be made in his name to Doctors Without Borders and SmileTrain.
