Condolences to the Family of Jerry R. Faust

2021

Jerry gave me my first job after college. I like to relate to people my experiences working with him. He made me better! He personified a Texan to me. He was a great guy. I have been thinking of him time to time and looked him up today and was sorry to see him pass. God Bless you Jerry.

I am so sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. He & I were childhood classmates from RQ Mills Elementary, Boude Storey Jr. High to WH Adamson High School in Oak Cliff, Dallas. Jerry was a sweet, smart young man and always a friend.

My deepest sympathies to the Faust family and friends. Jerry was a long time colleague in officiating, and was always a great crewmate. We had many laughs and although he has been out of officiating for a while, he will be greatly missed.

I'm sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. I met Jerry officiating football. His passion inspired me. When I was confused about a rule he would explain in a way that I could understand. He was a mentor to me and he was my friend. To those who knew him best I'm sorry for your loss. Rest in peace Jerry. I'll remember you always. Brad Farrington

I'd like to offer my deepest condolences on the passing of my friend, Jerry. We officiated many football games together, both at the high school and collegiate level. He was extremely smart and always a gentleman. It was always a pleasure to work games with him and be in his presence. He will be greatly missed.

Laura - So sorry to hear about your loss. Jerry was always one of my favorites to stop and talk to. He was so down to earth. He was always so appreciative of anything that we in Facilities did for him. I remember when he graduated and got his own lab. The two of you always made me laugh when you talked golf with me out on Harrison Ave. I tried to picture the sight of the two of you on the course! May the memories of all your good times bring you peace. God Bless Steve Nasson

I never got to meet Jerry in person (I live in Finland and rarely visit US), but I consider him a good friend from the online football officials' community. It seems only yesterday when we were last discussing rules and mechanics together. Jerry was always willing to share his knowledge with younger officials like me, and his efforts are a major part of my officiating knowledge. My condolences to you all!

So many of us owe so much to Jerry for his sage counsel, advice and friendship over the years. He likely never knew the number of people he trained in the football officiating world as many of us took what we learned from Jerry and used it to mentor others. His influence spread border to border and even internationally thanks to the modern technology of the late 90's and into the 21st century. His humble but honest approach was surpassed only by his willingness to help others. I still don't know how he managed to do as much as he did but am forever thankful for having had the chance to meet him and partner with him in developing football officials for many years. Thank you to Laura for sharing him with us for all those years.
