Natalie - 5 days ago

To the Gross Family, Forty years ago, when I was 17, Uncle Jerry and Aunt Etta and Pam opened their home to me and had me stay with them, when my dysfunctional home became too difficult for me to live in. They included me in family events, dinner outings, and weekends in their country home. Jerry and Etta even encouraged me to take ski lessons, gave me ski equipment, and even paid for all the lessons! The list of all they did for me is extensive. One example is, when I was 20, Jerry and Etta interagating my date, who was a much older man, to find out his intentions! Also, I later found out that, during my childhood, Jerry and Etta had paid for my summer camp, every summer! They had even tried to adopt me when I was an infant, but my parents refused. Jerry, Etta, Pam and you all cared very much for me and treated me like part of the family - daughter and sister. I will never forget that generosity and love. May you be spared any further sorrow. Love, Natalie

Sam Fattal - 9 days ago

Dear Gross family, I was deeply saddened to hear of Jerry's passing. I had the pleasure of knowing Jerry for 54 years, ever since I first met him through his employee Ron Smiley in January 1969. At that time, I was just starting my own business and trying to sell textiles. Jerry’s company Biltmore, which was among the largest in the furniture business, became my first customer by giving me my very first order. That incited me to expand by visiting suppliers in India to obtain more stock. Jerry subsequently showered me with orders and his encouragement launched me into growing a large business. Over the years, I had the opportunity to meet with Jerry many times, and he always dealt with me graciously. I obtained an invaluable education in business from him and his operation. Later in life, Jerry actually ended up as my tenant in Westmount Square. I wish that I had seen him more often and I will miss him a lot. I send my deepest condolences to his family and friends. Jerry will always be remembered for his kindness and generosity. Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that my thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Sam Fattal

My deepest condolences to the Gross family, for the loss of wonderful man. I met Jerry about 40 years ago. My late father-in-law, Saul Cohen had a place at La Mer. So the three of us spend some time together, going out for dinners and drinks and talking about anything and everything. Jerry was very entertaining. "La piece des resistance" - after dinner he would take us for a walk at Albertson's supermarket. As he said: "where else can you walk around and be safe, this late in Florida in the 80's".

To the very special Gross Children and the extended family, Jerry lived a wonderful long life surrounded by his truly devoted and very caring children everyday of his life. We go back to St Sauveur when the kids were young and we were all on the ski hills every weekend. Gerry was my ski buddy. Lots of laughs and super times . He had a full life with his very special wife Etta. In his later years he was the sparkle on Greene Ave. greeting everyone. The minute I got out of my car he spotted me and there was the sparkle in his eyes. Hard to believe I won't see him anymore but have the most wonderful memories of a man they called Clarke Gable. He was the better looking one. My sympathies to the family. You have 97 yrs of special memories with your dad. Thinking of all of you at this verysad time Hugs. Connie

Jerry was indeed an original and true hero. The best way to honor Jerry is to memorialize his exploits, in Israel's War of Independence. This is exactly what my film "Unlikely Heroes" does (see trailer and Jerry @ 00:43). https://iplayerhd.com/player/video/6831c891-9ee8-4f16-9a7b-80b05279ebf0/share With your help Jerry will never die, nor should he, as his courage will inspire others to not only stand up for Israel but all Jews, who are under attack, today. Please contact me or (Pam) if you would like to learn more about the film. Jhoffman@squashhouse.net

my condolences to the family who I feel i have known all my life, When I about 10 years old my father, Benton took me on a saturday to solve a Flock fabric problem of breathability, Gerry had this small little office near Kruger but he was a big man, very tall and striking. Gerry found a solution to use the fabric and deliver to his customer. Later on after Biltmore Ind I met him again at the Toronto Furniture show on a fathers day and he was hawking Serta matresses, what was that but he made it a success. I have fond memories of him and his family. My sympathies, Sheldon and Cheryl

Peter & Wendy Grill - 10 days ago

To the entire Gross family, My condolences on the loss of your father , grandfather , " the legend". Those of us who grew up in the family furniture business all knew of Jerry from a young age . At the Montreal furniture show , there would be Jerry, larger than life ,dressed in a white suit and white shoes , meeting and greeting,and directing everybody visiting the show. He was the star of the show . Over many years I would see him often at Westmount square , or les 5 saisons having coffee with my father outside , or the La Mer pool deck. It was always a pleasure to stop and chat with him. He was sharp as a tack and knew everything. One time at La mer , he brought down his album of documents and photos with his buddies in the war. My sons were in complete awe to see this . Jerry will be sadly missed by everybody who knew him. Rest in peace Jerry. Peter & Wendy Grill

Dear Family, What a special dad you had. I remember driving him home a few years back from the Chevra with my friend Michael Chaimberg and Jerry invited us up to the apt to see all his memorabilia relating to Israel and his participation in its creation. He was so rightfully proud and we were both in awe. Then your mom from her bed sang to us… what a day never to be forgotten. I also saw him at a Beit Halochem event which also left an impact on me and played a role in myself becoming involved with the organization tasked with supporting our Israeli 🇮🇱Vets. His memory will live on in you and your family and the countless people whose lives he touched such as myself. RIP ☮️ Jerry.

Irene Namer & Hayley Silverman - 11 days ago

I’m extremely sad and heartbroken to find out my uncle Jerry Gross passed away. He inspired me along with my aunt Etta to pursue medicine, technology and medicine. Instilled strong Chabad Jewish views into me along with my father. He served in World War II and taught me NEVER to back down from a challenge. I would enjoy a nice breakfast at a diner with him and my aunt Etta when I was a kid. We would meet up in Miami Beach or Fort Lauderdale. ”In 1947, Gross was a 21-year-old Canadian Army and World War II veteran serving with other Canadian veterans in Palestine more than six months before the declaration of the state of Israel on May 15, 1948.” He’s a role model to me and amazing. Baruch dayan ha'emet!
