Jerome was an Honorary Life Member and Former Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Bristol Council #379 and a member of La Bella Sicilia Society.

In addition to his beloved wife Elaine, he leaves behind his daughters, Anne Elizabeth Swinney (Jeff) and Mattie Anne Bolus (Mark), his grandchildren, Emma Rose Swinney, Jack Swinney, and Stephen Bolus, his Godson Patrick McCarthy and many extended family and friends.
