Jerrold Mandel


Jerrold Mandel, (92), of Cumming, Georgia, lost his battle with Alzheimer's disease and passed away on October 20th, surrounded by his ‍family.

Jerrold, fondly known as Jerry, was born to Leo and Rebecca Mandel, on December 14, 1930, in Brooklyn, NY. He was a talented singer, guitar player, and artist and attended City College of NY, where he earned his Bachelors of Business Administration in Advertising. He also served in the Army, during the Korean War. After graduating from College, Jerry held various positions as Vice President of Marketing & Advertising as well as Art Director. He enjoyed spending his free time playing tennis and being with his family and friends.

Jerry is survived by his wife Barbara, his two children Melanie and Brian (and their spouses Billy & Jacqueline), and his 5 grandchildren Corey, Ashleigh, Kassidy, Lili and Brendan. 

Aside from his love for music, Jerry was passionate about giving back. He volunteered at various Nursing Homes, where he played the guitar and sang for the residents.
