It is our sad duty to report that our longtime friend and former CCE President, Jerry Berger, passed away on Wednesday, May 18.

Jerry will be remembered for his dedication to CCE, his warmth and friendliness, and the bad jokes with which he opened every club meeting while president.

Jerry was laid to rest on Thursday, July 7, 2022, at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in honor of his service to our country.
