Jerome "Jerry" Spitzer Coelho

Jerome "Jerry" Spitzer Coelho

A beautiful life taken from us way too soon. Jerome was blessed with a gift for bringing people together, and in this time of passing is still uniting those who knew and loved him. Through sharing his passions for baking, the outdoors, and his love for crystals he made many memories in our hearts. Always trying to keep up with his own free spirit he conveyed selflessness, love for others, and true joy for life. There was never a dull moment with Jerry as he went from one adventure to the next. Today he wouldn't want anyone to be sad but to celebrate. The mountains were calling and he had to go.

Jerry was preceded in death by his father, Carlos Coelho, and his grandfather Leonard Spitzer.

Jerry is survived by his loving mother, Sidney Spitzer, brother, Nick Coelho (Layla), and his uncle, Ricardo Coelho, Jerry is also survived by his precious daughter Layla Spinks.

A celebration of Jerome's life will be held this sunday at the Wolfe Street Recovery Center from 3-5pm.

Condolence Book

"Dear Coelho Family: I am so sorry for your loss. My son Justin went to school (Dunbar and/or Parkview) with Jerry. That's been a few years ago so I can't remember exactly but I do remember the aroma of bread baking when I would drop Justin off to hang out at your house. He visited some times and said he spent the night once too...that I don't remember either. I did meet you Sidney. My deepest sympathy to you and your family🙏 Cathy Alley"
