Jerry Benezra, 79, of Toms River, and Barefoot Bay Florida passed away on Wednesday November 2, 2022 at Community Medical Center in Toms River. Jerry was born and raised in the Bronx, NY where he graduated from William Howard Taft High School. Jerry served his country in the United States Air Force during war and peacetime for 22 years.

He is predeceased by his wife, Joyce Benezra.
