Jerry was a self made man who worked for everything he ever had. He drove a truck for Corner Hutch Furniture of Statesville for many years before starting his own trucking company, Reese’s Delivery, in 1993. He loved trucking and built a very successful trucking business. He also had another love, “his girls” and his family. He loved them so big and they loved him big right back. He loved going on field trips with his girls and making precious memories with them. He was a die hard Republican and if you knew him, you knew this. Jerry Reese did it his way, and we loved everything about him.
