Jerry served as a Navy Journalist from 1955-1959 and that grounding is central to "Impact Awareness" work. He is no stranger himself to attracting press, especially because of his co-founding of one of America’s fastest-growing and most impactful charities, RIP Medical Debt (RIP). In the nine short year since its founding in 2014, RIP has raised enough in donations to enable it to purchase – and forgive – over $8.5 billion in unpayable medical debt to positively affect the lives of 5.5+ million Americans. Jerry and his team of co-creators at Let's Rethink This (LRT) are using the tools developed at RIP to bring about similar results for his fellow vets.
