Condolences for Jerry Schweighart

My family first met Jerry in February 1977 when he helped apprehend the two guys who murdered my youngest brother in Champaign. He helped our family by writing many letters to the Parole Board on our behalf. Jerry was a wonderful man and will always remain in our hearts. May he rest in peace. God bless your family.

I have known Jerry, Kim and family for half a century. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Kim, Jerry, Rory, Tami and families. Jerry has been an amazing advocate for all things Champaign - as a Police Officer, City Council member and Mayor; along with his wonderful and loving roles as a husband, father, grandfather, relative and friend. He leaves a legacy of memories and impacts in and beyond our community. Thank you, Jerry - and all Schweighart's! God Bless you everyone.

Knew Jerry from a young man and he was always such a good hardworking guy... He brought Kim to meet us and she was "the one"...never a doubt and he felt he had married up and hit the jackpot...We were so happy for them....Good memories.. ...Paula Mays Eastin
