Jerome’s employment includes The Pasco County Sheriff Office for several years, working his way up the ranks to Sergeant Fields. He also worked at Florida National Cemetery for several years. He later began his own tree service business for a while. Later, he started a stripping, waxing and cleaning service business which he loved doing. He also worked at James A. Haley Veterans Hospital as a Floor Technician retiring January 31, 2013. Jerome knew and loved the Lord and he accepted the Lord as his Personal Savior early in years and later joined Mt.
