He was the Chief of Acoustic Engineering at Skywalker Sound, a division of Lucas Digital Ltd., where he designed, engineered, and implemented sophisticated sound systems at George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch and Industrial Light and Magic. Jerry set audio standards for the soundtracks of over 60 blockbuster movies and Academy-award winning films, including Finding Nemo, Saving Private Ryan, Monsters, Inc., Titanic, and Star Wars Episodes I and II.
