Obituary

Jerry Watson was born on September 17, 1942 in Somerville, New Jersey to Angie and Jerry Watson. He was the oldest of four children. Sadly Jerry, we knew him as “Jay” passed away on March 3, 2020, due to complications of cancer.

Jay spent his early educational years attending Altoona, Pennsylvania public schools. When the family moved back to Somerville he attended and graduated from Somerville High School. Jay went on to attend Howard University where he met and married Theresa Lawhorn. From this union they had one daughter, Carole Watson. Over the years Jay worked and lived in a variety of places. He worked in Washington, DC, Jersey City, New Jersey and Bronx, New York as Supervisor of Housekeeping in a major hospital. It was here in New York that Jay met and married Juliana Bobb. From this union they had two sons Joseph who still lives in New York and Clifford, who is now deceased.

Jay had multiple interests and hobbies, at one time he considered himself a amateur photographer. He took a lot of pictures and developed many in his home darkroom. He is also noted for a black and white photo of the kids in the family on a back porch which looks “Our Gang.”

Jay also was very interested in public service, he ran for offices on the state and national level. He loved going to the casino and racetracks. In addition, Jay liked and worked for a short period in the stock market. He often gave friends and family suggestions for buying and selling stocks and bonds.

He is survived by his loving daughter, Carole and son, Joseph, his sister,Tina Watson-Travis, his brother, Tony Watson, his sister in-law Yvonne Watson, his brother-in-law Leslie Floyd, his grand sons; Jayvon and Clifford, and great granddaughter, Cassidy. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Jay was predeceased in death by his youngest son Clifford A. Watson and his mother, father and sister Carol Floyd.

We will miss you, we know that you are trouble free and residing in the house of the Lord.

While attending school in Washington,DC my first time ever away from home it was so comforting to know that my big brother Jay was here in the city to call on him if I needed him for money or a meal. He always came through. Towards the end of his life I visited him in Atlantic City several times, he clearly didn’t feel good, but he kept his spirits up by sharing funny stories of events in his life. I’m not sure if they were true or not, but regardless if was Nice to be there with him in the little time that we had left. Rest In Peace
