Jerald "Jerry" Dee Pearson

Jerald Dee Pearson, also known as JP was born on April 17th 1960 on an Easter morning to Janet Davis and Frank Howard Pearson. He Passed away peacefully in his home on June 16th 2021.

He grew up and lived in Fairview Idaho his entire life. He was raised as a farm boy working along side his father and siblings. Working on the farm instilled a work ethic in him that he carried through his entire life. He and his family spent many weekends in the mountains camping and fishing. He began hunting on his father’s shoulders at the age of four. He loved everything about it and became an avid hunter and fisherman.

He graduated from Preston High School in 1978. The next spring, he joined theAir Force. After leaving the service he returned home and married his High school sweetheart Cherisa Lynne Austin. They built a home down the road from his parents on the land he had farmed as a child. They had two daughters Jessica Lyn, and Kami Brooke.
He followed in his fathers’ footsteps and became a journey man electrician. He worked with and taught many apprentices. He became well known within the trade for his unique accent and “Jerry Pearsonisms” and he made many lifelong friends.

He later married Eleanor Perry and was blessed with another little girl, Courtney Nicole.
He loved his daughters with all of his heart. He hoped for boys but taught his girls everything he would have taught a son. He instilled his love of the outdoors in each of them. He spent his spare time with them exploring the mountains and fishing. He was a grandpa to three grandchildren with another on the way that he loved to spend time with as well.

The love of his life was Cindy Jo Kirkbride, they spent many wonderful years together. Cindy had two children, Holly Jo and Kasey James that he loved as his own.
He was loved by so many. He had so many dear friends that were his family. If he wasn’t at home, you could find him on a lake or in the mountains with his buddies and his two dogs who were his constant companions.

Jerry was a mountain man and a jokester, full of stories that would draw you in every time. No one could ever be sure how “tall” the tale was. He was the life of the party. He will be missed so dearly. He was taken too soon, but his memory and stories will always be cherished by all that knew him.

He is survived by his parents; Frank and Janet Pearson, children; Jessica,( Michael) Vandygriff, Franklin ID, Kami Pearson, Preston ID. Courtney, (Kameron) Little, Lewiston , UT siblings; Wendy (Kenneth) Eck. Meridian, ID, Randy Pearson, Pocatello, ID, Debbie (Phil) Meyer, Beaverton, OR, Craig (Ruth) Henninger, Corvallis, OR, Grandchildren; Makiah Pierce, Kenidee and Austin Vandygriff, and Baby Little who will join us soon, many nieces and nephews as well as all of his dear friends.

There will be a brief graveside service at Dayton Idaho Cemetery at 11:00, with a Celebration of Life to follow at the Preston ID Elks Lodge, (1229 N. 800 E. Preston, Idaho) at 12:30 pm.

I meet Jerry 20+ years ago. He's definitely a jokester! Have your the one about a cat tongue he brought to work? It lasted literally for years nailed up in the job trailer. I love you brother!

I was severely saddened to hear of Jerry's passing. I probably spent thousands of accumulated hours over the years working side by side with Jerry. I never did tire of his company. I came to appreciate hearing his stories and jokes repeated with an endearing familiarity. I loved to ask him about his weekend on a Monday morning. He had a story tellers gift. His stories of what would otherwise be mundane, were captivating and funny. His spirit brought life and joy to everyone around him. He will be missed. I feel lucky to have known him.

Jerry was loved and respected by the entire team at TEC Electric. His sharp sense of humor and dedicate to the trade will be sorely missed.
