Jerome Stanley was born May 29, 1940 in Wausau, Wisconsin to Vernon and Angeline (Lenard) Meyers. He graduated from Wausau High School and began his painting career with which he stuck to for over 40 years in the construction and commercial side of the industry.

Jerry was an active member in the Wabeno Lions Club for over 20 years, coached senior league boys baseball in Wausau for 13 years and was a proud donor to the Children’s Make a Wish Foundation.
