I've listened to his excellent commentary on the Mosconi Cup and the WPC tournament and have been extremly impressed with his knowledge and relaxed delivery. Surely a man of his knowledge is/was an accomplished player.

He's the Tournament Editor for Pool and Billiard Magazine. Don't know if he ever played. I've only ever seen him at events with a camera... never a cue. He participated at the US Open Former Winners Players Roast and was positively BRUTAL. Cold hearted and relentless. He seemed to be the only one who understood what a "roast" is supposed to be. I enjoy his articles in pool & billiard. He's one of the better writers in the industry.

Group,

Any RSB'ers who want to say hi, I'm the ugly guy with the bald head
carrying a camera around on a monopod.

He also had the tough duty of covering a big pool tourney in Aruba of all places. It was the Pan-American games or something I'm not sure. Tough gig huh.. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Jerry is also one of the most honest and 'straight up' guys that I have met in the business.

From the first time I met him at the Camel 8-Ball event in Vegas a few years ago, I have always known him to give me his honest opinion and I trust what he tells me about this industry and the people in it 100%.

Almost everyone in this industry is (understandably) trying to make money at what they are doing. He really seems to be in it for the game itself.

He has made many sacrifices for this game and I believe he would give anyone the shirt off his back if they just asked.

I honestly consider he and Diana Hoppe two of the best people I have met in this industry.

Jerry is the nephew of Luther Lassiter and is a very knowledgeable individual. Good with the pen (or the Mac) and a wizard with the lense and the microphone.
My favourite cliche during his Sky Sports commentary is - "He's come up dry!" (he has not made a ball on the break).
He covered a tournament for me in the UAE earlier this year and did an excellent job as the Press Officer. He is a great guy, a plausible raconteur and (I hope) a good friend. He can also shoot pretty good and plays senior events in the USA.
