Jerald went to school at Elmira Grade school,(1961-1966) Fern Ridge Junior High (1966-1969), and Graduated from Elmira High School in June of 1974.

Jerald and Kathleen first met through Elmira Junior Grange when they were both about 5 years old. Jerry said that he thought Kathleen looked cute when he first saw her. Kathy spent a couple of high school years summers with the Fox family, mostly with Celia and Kathy during bean picking season. Quite often there would either be picnics at the Fox household in the back yard or picnics at the Gillelands at the "summer house" down by the Long Tom River. Eventually through the course of dating other people, Jerry and Kathy realized that they enjoyed each others company tremendously and wanted to spend their lives as husband and wife to each other.

Jerry married Kathleen Jan Gilleland on October 23, 1976 in Noti, Oregon and has two children: Emmalee Colleen (January 6, 1981 to May 17, 2007), and Living Daughter (1988 to current).

Jerry's "official" occupation is "logger" having worked in the woods for over 30 years for various companies.

They along with Kathy's father, Cecil, currently reside in Noti Oregon having moved into a house that was built in 2005 using lumber that Jerry milled from the property they live on.
