In Memory of Jerry Milan

In memory of Jerry Milan, board member of Clay Humane

It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of another member of our Clay Humane family - our board member and friend, Gerald “Jerry” Milan. As we look back on Jerry’s life, we are reminded of the powerful impact one person can have on a community.   Through a lifetime spent in service – in the U.S. Navy, as a public servant with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, as an adjunct professor, and as a volunteer board member for Clay Humane – Jerry was an example of how to live humbly without need of reward or recognition.   He was more than a board member, more than a volunteer, more than a retiree; he was a husband, a father, a friend, a mentor, an innovator, and a leader.  Jerry was many other things, as well -  an avid golfer, a proud member of the (Buffalo) Bills Mafia, a practical jokester, an animal lover, and a patriot.  For Clay Humane, he was the backbone of our organization.

Jerry never just looked around and saw things that needed attention – he took action.  He saw opportunity where many saw problems.  With the dedication and enthusiasm of a dozen volunteers, Jerry raised money, recruited volunteers, chaired fundraisers, and led our organization for more than 16 years.  Undoubtedly, Jerry’s legacy will be the lives he touched, the lives he saved, and the lives he changed during his time on Earth.  His impact on Clay Humane and our community is evident today and will be far into the future.  We are honored to count ourselves among the many who have benefited from having known Jerry Milan.
