In 2012, Jerry received an Otsego 2000 historic preservation award for exemplary adaptive reuse of his historic barn.
Jerry is survived by his wife of 70 years, Nancy; three daughters, Anne Seabury Waller Auerbach (Brookline, Mass.), Sydney Lancaster Waller (Cooperstown), and Margaret Waller Burhoe (Brookline, Mass.); and six grandchildren, Peter, David, Jocelyn, Rebecca, Samuel and Anna.
Keeping up with his beloved children and grandchildren was one of his greatest joys.
He leaves a broad circle of devoted Waller/Thomson nieces and nephews, cherished friends; French “cousins,” and former SKS students in the U.S., and France.
A celebration of his life will be held in Roseboom later this spring.
