On July 14, 1979, Jerry married Sherri Westbrook at St. Andrew’s Catholic Church in Granite Falls and they made their home in Redwood Falls and later rural Morton. Jerry was employed by Daktronics in Redwood Falls. He was an active member of St. John’s Catholic Church where he served as a trustee and volunteer. Jerry was an avid hunter and outdoorsman; he enjoyed outdoor activities of all kinds. Jerry also shared his interest in the outdoors as a Boy Scout leader. Jerry adored his family. Nothing made him happier than spending time surrounded by Sherri, his kids, and his grandkids.

He is survived by his wife Sherri Christopherson of Morton; children Jason (Sarah) Christopherson of Eden Prairie, and Ashley Arntson of Plymouth; grandchildren Kane and Brynn Christopherson, and Jackson and Kenley Arntson; his parents Marlyn and Mary Christopherson; sisters Cheryl (Jack) Haugse of Rapid City, South Dakota, Trudy (Mark) Hastad of Madison, Minnesota; and brother Scott (Amy) Christopherson of Volga, South Dakota.
