Deputy fire chief remembered for knowledge, compassion
Fire and other local officials are remembering the city’s deputy fire chief, Gerald “Jerry” Kainz, who died Monday at Jamestown Regional Medical Center.
Kainz, 70, was a 46-year veteran of the Jamestown Fire Department.
Jamestown Fire Chief James Reuther said Kainz was sworn in as a member of the fire department on May 27, 1968.
“May 27 turned out to be a very important day for Jerry, as that was the same day he married his wife, Nadine,” Reuther said.
