    Bro. Jerry Cox, my brother in Christ; my friend; and my Sunday School Teacher!!! I was Jerry’s pastor for over 40 years. He always called me his pastor. I counted that as an honor. Jerry was pastor at Windy Hill Baptist Church when they were about ready to close the doors. And he saw it grow and grow in number and fellowship; they also had the Beulah Bible Conferences. We will miss our Brother, but because Jesus takes all our sins away, we will be with Jerry with our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven. Amen! And Sherrie, we are praying for you in these difficult days…

    Jerry, we have missed you at Bellview Baptist Church because of your illness, and now we will miss you even more because you’re gone. As a fellow deacon, I always looked up to you, and appreciated your input about church matters, and your devotion to the Lord. Our thoughts and prayers will be your family in the days ahead.

  9. James Sanders says:

    Jerry was good friend. My favorite nickname for Jerry was “Boom Boom” Cox. He and I were both deputies and one day he accidently discharged a shot gun near Sheriff Untriner.
    From then on he was nicknamed Boom Boom Cox.
    I will miss him.

  11. Paul Ogden says:

    Jerry and I served together in the 544th Aerospace Reconnaissance Technical Wing of the Sttategic Air Command at SAC Headquarters, Offutt AFB, Nebraska. Jerry was always a very sincere and friendly guy. We played on the unit’s football team together, also.

    We lost track of each other after I was transferred to Germany. After the Air Force, I joined the Houston Police Department. One day I was surprised to receive a call from Jerry, who advised me of his ministerial journey and that he was a lieutenant with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

    We stayed in contact, especially as each of us dealt with hurricanes that threatened our areas. Special thanks to Jerry and his friends for their prayers when Hurricane Harvey dumped several feet of rain in the Houston area three years ago.

    God bless Jerry’s family and friends. Rest In Peace, brother.

  12. Dennis Terry says:

  16. Ski Gowitzke says:

    Jerry was a good friend and we had some great times back in the day both on and off the job at the Escambia Sheriff’s Office. He will be missed

  17. Mary Rebber says:

    Sincere condolences to Jerry’s family. Jerry was one of the first deputies I met at the ECSO. Jerry was always nice to me and my mind went directly back to conversations we had, especially the last one, after I retired, when he was working security at GWCU. My daughter was working at GWCU at the time and I know Jerry was liked while working security.

    May your precious memories comfort your family forever and always.
