An NPC Angel

Jerry Wilson (NPC) and Family at the
2011 Family Conference

Dear Families and Friends,

It is with great sorrow that we must inform the Niemann-Pick Disease Community that Jerry Wilson lost his battle with NPD on Friday, October 18th at the age of 23.

Jerry enjoyed listening to music, fishing, playing video games, and riding his bike.  He was a big fan of Pittsburgh Steelers football and the World Wrestling Federation.  John Cena was his favorite professional wrestler.  Jerry also loved playing with remote control cars, drawing, going bowling and playing bingo.
Many of us had the esteemed honor of meeting Jerry at the 2011 Family Conference.  He especially enjoyed the baseball game and the fireworks display.  Feel free to share your fond memories & condolances with the family at the below link.

His sister made two collages for Jerry.  These are from her Facebook page.

Our hearts go out to all of Jerry's family and anyone who he has touched in his time with us.  May his family and friends find the strength they need to move on in the days, weeks and months ahead without Jerry in their arms. Please know that all the families and friends of the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation are with you all in our hearts and in grief.
