Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

        • US Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

        • CA Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine




DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

This Policy covers the Site in part and as a whole. However, it does not apply to entities that Company does not own or control, including without limitation, Campaign, advertisers or developers of content. Company may include third-party links on the Site. These third-party sites are governed by their own privacy policies and NOT this Policy.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

    Company shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or has been authorized. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Company shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.

Company will not tell the advertiser who you are as part of this process. When you interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that you may receive a cookie from the advertiser.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response. This may include requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States if Company has a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, is applicable to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. It is Company’s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore, Company restricts the Site and all other provided services to persons 18 years or older.

It doesn't seem so long ago that we shared our time at Goucher College. But I guess it is. I and all the people who have posted here clearly have nothing but respect, honor and appreciation for all that Jerry did in life. Tammy, I send you and all your family my condolences. Many many people have been blessed by knowing Jerry in all sorts of contexts. My brother-in-law, Mark Silver, told me that Jerry taught him how to play lacrosse as Jerry did for so many. May his memory be for a blessing--but it already has been a blessing and will continue to be so.

I just heard of the passing of Jerome Schnydman, and it saddened me very much.
I guess I have known all the members of the Schnydman family since I was about ten.
Never a more warm, classy, caring family. Jerome was the type of person who would always
come up to me when he saw me and give me that huge smile and HELLO.
I couldnt have been treated better. I was lucky and blessed to have known him.

Dear Tammy,
I am so sorry to respond so late. We just got back from Florida celebrating Jessica's wedding. I was shocked to read about the passing of Jerome. This brought back a flood of memories from when we moved to Streamwood Dr. You and Jerome and Becky and Andy were so sweet to us. Debbie and Andy were toddlers and later they became friends. I so vividly remember the pool events and the camaraderie amongst all the neighbors. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and may his memory be a blessing

I am so sorry for your loss.
I met Jerry thru the choir rehearsal at Beth El. He was such a fun kind person with a great sense of humor. We will definitely miss his voice in more ways than just as a singer in the choir. May his memory be a blessing to you all.!

Tammy and Family: Jerry was one of the truly good guys with never a harsh word. From lacrosse days, to softball days, to the every now and then meetings, always the gentleman with his built-in smile. Jerry will always be remembered as a role model. His wonderful legacy will live on in the many he has influenced and lives he has touched.

Dear Tammy and Family, Every once in a while there comes someone who embodies an exceptional presence, someone who makes all around them comfortable in their sphere, someone who lifts those around them to their highest calling, and unceremoniously delivers every time called upon, someone who lives in the sunshine of respect and admiration bcz it has been so well earned. Jerry was that person and lived that life. He is beloved by so many as he shared his love with so many. Most of us endeavor to frame ourselves w/these noble attributes - but for Jerry, it came quite naturally. We met at City in 1959 and worked closely together on Class functions - he was our J'62 President - and until this day I have never seen Jerry lose his cool, fail to lead impeccably, not make a friend at every introduction, or lose a face-off. Jerry personified the "Man" Kipling envisioned in his epic poem "If", and he became the living image of that role model for so many. My life has been more fulfilled for knowing Jerry and enjoying his friendship, I shall miss him soulfully. Good night my Friend.

Jerry always made everyone in the office laugh…we all adored him! My funniest memory of him was when he was carrying the Torah during services and saw me in the congregation, proceeded to pull his lip back and show me his gums and proudly told me that he flossed! Sending all of you hugs and lots of love💗

Having known Jerry since his days on Greenspring Avenue, I can say he truly had a way of making people feel better about themselves. I can honestly say I was lucky to have known such a person who really cared about those he knew. He is irreplaceable in each of the lives he touched. He will be missed by many.

Jerry and Tammy both welcomed Bernard and I into their extended family during our high school years at the School for the Arts with Becky. Their home was a home base for us to grow and develop as people, and we were wrapped into the warm embrace of this loving family. We will miss this wonderful man. Much love to the family!

Dear Tammy, Becky, Andy and all your family,
We are greatly saddened, and extend our heartfelt condolences on Jerry’s passing. We’ve been fortunate to have lived three doors from you for more than 50 years. Our neighborhood was one where everyone helped one another, looked after and cared about all the children and shared good times and heartaches. But most of all, we had so much fun and so many happy memories. Jerry was usually at the center of things.

Remember the time Jerry gathered the neighbors to watch our eldest daughter leave for her prom? How embarrassing it was for her! She and her date could not leave fast enough. But, Jerry started a prom tradition for years to come.

Because Herm had also graduated from Johns Hopkins, he would receive the Hopkins Magazine. Every issue seemed to have a photo of Jerry and his achievements at Hopkins. Herm would chide Jerry about all the press, and once said, “I’m tired of looking at your photo.” So, on Herm’s birthday, Jerry gave Herm a nicely-wrapped gift…an 8x10 photo of Jerry Schnydman. We immediately put it in our front kitchen window. It stayed there for several months until some neighbors complained.

He was president of the neighborhood Swim Club for a time and helped us with our annual Biathlon. He participated in the running and swimming events and won a trophy for winning his age group.

Our almost-daily interaction with you and Jerry began when you acquired Sadie. Was that six years ago? Since you walked her past our house 3 or 4 times a day, we’d go out to chat or just wave to each other from the kitchen window. Jerry and Nannette would throw kisses to one another and Herm and Jerry would trade wisecracks or make faces at each other through the kitchen window. They both had the same dry-sense of humor and had so many laughs. It was basic fun acting like they were two kids.

Jerry was not one of the good guys. He was one of the BEST guys!
We are going to miss him and are so grateful that Jerry and you have been part of our lives.

Rest in peace, dear friend. We love you.
Nannette and Hermie Blinchikoff

We are left with many fond memories of this extraordinary dynamic individual over the past 54 years.

He was a BIG BIG man.

We were all better for knowing him. May his memory always be a blessing to each of you. Barry & Sheila and the Steelman family

Dear Tammy,
I was sorry to hear of Jerome’s ( Jot, Jerry) passing. Beeny joins me in sending our heartfelt condolences to you and your family.
My fond memories of Jerome go back to elementary school ( # 87 Windsor Hills), when he beat me in the school hopscotch championship. I always kidded him that I didn’t have a chance because he had the advantage of being closer to the ground!
Then , it was on to Lancers and the many years of friendship and wonderful experiences with the club. It was the beginning of many members’ lacrosse careers. Over the years, we would run into one another and catch up on our lives. Although time had passed, our friendship and feelings were timeless. Jerome was one of a kind in so many ways and it was an honor and privilege to have known him.
May you and your family be consoled by all of the beautiful memories and experiences you shared with him.
With our deepest sympathies,
Beeny and Roy Finkelstein

Condolences to the entire family. Sorry for your loss.
I have not seen Jerry nor Sam in many years. But their father, Rube was the manager for my grandfather and father at Little Potts so I remember them as teenagers when I was probably 8 or 9. We always followed Jerry's lacrosse career from City to Hopkins, to Mt Washington. While we never knew each other as adults, he always seemed like extended family.

I want to express my deep condolences to the entire family. I had the distinct honor to serve on the Board of Beth El under Jerry's leadership. Jerry changed the landscape of how the Board was run and brought his quick wit and high intelligence to every meeting. I also had the distinct pleasure and honor to see both Jerry and Tammy at synagogue and every encounter with Jerry was filled with a smile and warmth. His intelligence , humor and outstanding people skills were truly unparalleled. Jerry was a remarkably humble person for someone who deserved and received a tremendous amount of respect. You are all very fortunate to have had Jerry as your husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather. May the many memories that you created together provide you with comfort in the days, weeks and years to come.

Dear Tammy,
It’s been many, many years since I’ve seen either you or Jerome—you when we worked in the same office at SSA and Jerome during our early teen years when he was active in Lancers. I especially remember his smiling friendly ways. He since led a fruitful and satisfying life. I’m so sorry to hear of his difficult illness and passing, but I’m glad to know that he has many people who loved him and will remember him.

Tammy, I was so sorry to hear of Jerry's passing and this note is to let you and your family how sincere my condolences are to you. I am sure he will be sorely missed.
I don't know if your remember me. I was a good friend of your sister Sarah at Garrison Junior High School and I joined the first Junior Lancers. Jerry along with Michael Oidick and Herbie Better were the Senior Lancers advisors. But more important to me back then was that Jerry taught me lacrosse, to play midfield and be the face off guy. Jerry was my hero in those years. I kept up with his successes, in life and his work, even though I hadn't seen him in nearly 60 years. I was so proud of his accomplishments. I guess I picked the right guy to be my hero. I too will remember him forever.

This cannot be…Jerome was larger than life during our early years of high school and college when I last saw him. I imagine from reading his life details that he remained a remarkable presence. We all had a great time during the days of The Lancers except when we had the usual angst issue about dates and crushes. Wherever his soul has traveled, I know that he is still coaching and being a force of nature and that he is free of pain..Please share my words with Froma. Take care and be well!!

We will forever miss his smile, that mischievous twinkle in his eyes, his sense of humor which was coupled with wisdom and sincere feelings. One of the very best things that resulted in our joining Beth El was meeting Jerry and Tammy. Jerry was a special person who set the bar for all those who knew him. His impact to his family, friends, classmates, and Community is evident by the words of tribute that have been offered by all those who are feeling the loss but also recognize how fortunate it was to have known him. May his memory forever be for a blessing. Rest In Peace our dear friend!

Two of the nicest, decent and sincere, caring lovely people I have had the privilege of knowing. As a neighbor, Jerry brought me ice melt for the snow when I had trouble getting to the store and he was so caring in letting me know that he and you were available to me if I needed extra help. I have not been back to Beth El in awhile due to my inability to get around with hip/back issues. So sorry to not have kept in touch. I am learning how important it is now to keep in touch with people who have special meaning in your lives. Please stay strong for yourself, your family and cherish all of your wonderful memories.

Dear Tammy: I am so sorry to hear this news. I did not know he was sick. Thought about you often and hoped that we would stay in touch. I have not been back to Beth El because of my inability to walk without aid and I have been taking care of health issues. I have moved away from Lacewood. The pandemic came and changed my life as I am mainly at home now. I am remembering you and you husband fondly. Two very nice, sweet, decent and caring people who were really good neighbors in bringing me ice removal when I really needed help in getting me ready for the snow. Both of you really did want to extend yourselves to being helpful to another person in need. Please cherish your good and beautiful memories and may you be strengthened every day.

To the Schnydman family. I knew Jerry from my years at Baltimore City College ( June, 1963), and watched with delight his skills in the sport of lacrosse. No finer athlete at winning every face off. Would follow his exploits in lacrosse as he continued at John’s Hopkins. Lost tract of Jerry after Hopkins, but always remember his constant smile, warm greeting, and pleasant nature. He was the same age as my older brother, and always seemed to be available to give advise to younger students. Rabbi’s always tell us that a “good name” is the best legacy anyone can leave. Jerry Schnydman defines that idea. R.I.P !

Tammy, Becky, Andy, Sam and Jeanette,
David and I were so sorry to read that Jerome (Jerry) has passed away. He was such a unique person who always made everyone around him feel important. His kindness shone through his smile. Ever smiling and always upbeat. My favorite memories of Jerome are from our childhood. Our parents were good friends and his sister, Jeanette, and I were great friends too. The Schnydmans invited me over their home to sleep on many a weekend, whether it was on Vickers Road or Greenspring Ave. A fun time was always to be had among a gregarious, outgoing and happy family! What I remember the most when I was in their home was how Jerome, as a teenager, spoke to and treated his parents…with so much love, kindness and respect. And he was especially sweet with his grandmother, Mama Hortie, who lived with their family too. And many years later, Jerome and Tammy extended the same invitation to Jerome’s mom (“Aunt” Flo) to come and live with them in their home. What a really special guy; a really special couple! Jerome's presence will be missed by so many people, especially his family. Sending our love and deepest sympathy to the entire Schnydman family at this very sad time. Carol & David Buchoff

Jerry had the greatest passion and pride for what truly mattered to him - Tammy, his children, his grandchildren, Beth El, Hopkins and Lacrosse - to name a few. Jerry always had a broad smile and a kind word that brightened this world. RIP Jerry, our friend. You were so loved and will be missed terribly. May your memory always and forever be for a blessing.

Squat and tough, but a patient teacher with a ready smile, Jerry headed the lacrosse program at Camp Skylemar. If I remember correctly, and I'm going back 58 years (!) Jerry was the counselor of Bunk 12. He obviously left an impression. Beyond Lancers, whenever I ran into him in the ensuing years (and decades), he retained that ready smile and A+ disposition. I'm very saddened and send my heartfelt condolences.

“Larger than life”. What an apt description of a wonderful man. Jerry was always smiling and happiest when he was with Tammy. We have lost, but none more than Tammy and her children and grandchildren. Jerry, thank you for making Beth El and Baltimore a better place.

Dear Tammy, Becky, Andy, and family,

What a very special person Jerome was. He was larger than life in so many ways, a strong and positive presence in the lives of so many. Whether it was with lacrosse, Hopkins, the kids on Streamwood Drive, leadership at Beth Ell, and so many other places in our community, he impacted so many in beneficial ways. We will cherish these special memories. Please accept our sincere sympathy.

Tammy and family,
I am so saddened to hear about Jerry - he was a one of a kind. Jerry welcomed me to the Hopkins community when we started Hillel there, and served as my wise counsel for many years. It is hard to find a caring mensch like Jerry, and he was always there to help guide others, sharing updates about his family that he was so proud of, and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He served as a dugma (role model) for so many, and will be terribly missed. Thank you for graciously sharing Jerry with so many - he has so many fans.

Jerome has always been and will always be the kind of man that we hope our sons,brothers and fathers were. My father coached Jerome and Jerome coached my son. My late husband,Dr Merrill Egorin, counted him as a dear friend. Marty knew him as a classmate and friend. We are proud to have known him and loved who he was . All of us will remember him and mourn his loss. Our hearts are with you.

To the Schnydman Family,
My sincere condolences to you all on the passing of Jerry. I met Jerry during our days at BCC. He was smart, athletic and genuinely a terrific guy. I loved watching him play lacrosse, he was one heck of a face-off player. I’ve only seen Jerry sporadically over the years but every time I saw him, he had a cordial welcome. May he rest in eternal peace. Baruch HaShem.

My heart is broken by the loss of Jerry. Always smiling and joking around, he lit up a room whenever he was around. His love for his lifelong partner, Tammy, was an example to all of us of how marriage should be. He was never too busy to stop and take a call from her, his kids and grandkids. He was always a gentleman and Beth El was lucky to have him as President. May his memory be for a blessing. Jerry, I miss you already.

I am so sorry for your loss. It’s been several years since I have seen Jerry. Our families date back to Flo and my grandmother. My vivid memories of Jerry were when my dad would take my son, who is now 28 to lacrosse games at Hopkins and how thrilled he would be to see Jerry . He always took time to speak to my son. My father always spoke highly of Jerry and had a great deal of respect for him.

I’m in utter disbelief.
I loved Jerry, I remember the first time I met Jerry, when he was president of BE, I told him we’re going to be fast friends. When Jerry asked me why I told him at 5’4” theirs not many that I’m taller then. We laughed. Jerry got me involved with a couple committees & we had lunch on occasion. What a loss to Beth El & of course Jerry’s family. I for one will be forever grateful. I’ll miss you my friend.

Tamara, Sam and family---so very sorry for the loss of Jerry. I first met the Schnydman brothers at Windsor Hills Elementary, they were standouts even as kids, and continued to be standouts in their adult lives. I haven't seen Jerry (or Sam) since moving to Florida 25 years ago, but my grandson. Brandon Shure, plays lacrosse for Hopkins and would see Jerry at mostly every game and always send my regards. He will be missed by many, many people...may he rest in peace.
