Jerry Kramer

Opal Honoree

Jerry Kramer is a Boca Raton resident, a first-generation college graduate, and has lived life with a simple wish: “I was always hoping that tomorrow would be better than today.”
Jerry’s journey began in the 1930s when he lost his mother during The Great Depression. Growing up, he received little support or guidance from his father, attended seven different elementary schools, and started working at age 10 to support his family.
