On September 3, 2021 Jerry Watson passed away suddenly from Covid, despite being fully vaccinated. Jerry was a lifelong resident of St. Petersburg and graduated from St. Pete. High and USF St. Petersburg. He was a huge Lightning, Bucs, and Rays fan and was known for a great sense of humor and occasional pranks. Jerry loved his family and friends, who will miss his calls and visits and the sparkle in his rascally smile. He is survived by his mother Betty; brother John and sister Joyce and their spouses Donna and Giorgio; and his nieces and nephew. A memorial service will be announced in the coming months.
