Jerry bought his first dirtbike when he was 13 years old from money he earned mowing lawns. From this point forward, he knew that being on 2 wheels was where he needed to be. He's ridden off road ever since, he considers dirt riding to be a large part of his road racing skill set.

In 2011 was his first year road racing; he competed in the WERA North Central Series, racing a 2006 Suzuki SV650. Every race weekend he competed in 3 sprint races, eventually winning the class championship in all 3 of these classes. Beginning in 2017, 419 Racing began competing in the WERA / N2 National Endurance Championship - eventually winning the class championship in 2020. Jerry is also a WERA National Champion, bringing home the Lightweight Twins Superstock #1 plate in 2018. Also beginning in 2018, Jerry has competed in several professional (MotoAmerica) events in the Twins Cup class, frequently finishing in the points paying positions.
