Born March 30, 1954 in Atlantic City, NJ, the son of Marvin and Bette Davidson, he received a B.A. from Brooks Photography Institute of Santa Barbara.

He was a successful photographer for over 40 years, capturing images of actors, actresses, athletes and political figures.
Jerry served as the Commissioner of the Hermosa Beach Youth Basketball League for over 30 years, as well as a coach for HBYB and AYSO for many years. In his early years, Jerry was an avid racquetball player and waterman; frequently water skiing, surfing and scuba diving. He always loved being out on a boat, whether it was fishing with his dad or taking his daughters water skiing. Jerry’s favorite pastimes were working out in the gym, going to the beach with his friends, spending time with his daughters and grandsons and driving his golf cart to the beach. Jerry loved visiting his family in his hometown of Margate, New Jersey, but always returned to his home of 36 years in Hermosa Beach, California.
Jerry is survived by his parents; brother Herman (Lynn); twin sister Ilene (Barry); daughters Danielle, Courtney, Heather and Caitlin; sons-in-law Mike, Tyler and Mikey; grandsons Nate, Connor and Grant; nieces and nephews; and an abundance of great friends. To Know Him Was To Love Him!
