Obituary

On Saturday, January 25, 2020, Jerome “Jerry” Feldstein, loving father and faithful friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 72.

Jerry was the first child born to the late Doris and Ben Feldstein of East Baltimore. When the Feldstein family relocated to Forest Park in his early years, the bright and inquisitive Jerry began to develop his talents in mathematics and science. He proudly graduated from Poly (Baltimore Polytechnic Institute) in 1966 and then from Johns Hopkins, where he completed his education to become an electrical engineer and later added a master’s in computer science.

Jerry was a lifelong problem-solver and creative thinker; he found his career as an engineer at Westinghouse (later acquired by Northrop-Grumman) supremely gratifying. Although the progression of his multiple sclerosis forced him into an early retirement nearly thirty years ago, he never ceased identifying himself with his work at his “dream job.” Westinghouse was also the place where he met Cindy, the love of his life and the mother of his four children. Her untimely death (due to an accident in 2011) cut short a marriage spanning more than thirty-four years, leaving Jerry utterly devastated with grief.

Jerry cultivated eclectic and wide-ranging tastes in music, books and media. When friends and family came to visit, they would often be treated to the sounds of prog rock emanating from Jerry’s pride and joy, a stereo system comprising components he curated and configured himself over the decades. His bookshelves were filled with science fiction novels; Frank Herbert’s “Dune” chronicles held prominence, but works of Heinlein and Asimov were also among his favorites. He instilled a geeky reverence for an ever-expanding repository of fun facts and fascinating pieces of culture,
from the original “Twilight Zone,” to National Public Radio, to the marvels of Bach organ music.

Jerry possessed a sincere interest in every person fortunate enough to cross his path; he was regarded as a great listener and patient parent. He never lost his sense of wonder, and was captivated by big ideas (for instance, the laws of physics), and charmed by the antics of animals and children. He was witty, he was kind, he was brave. He will be so sorely missed.

Jerry is survived by his four children, Stacy (Les), Diana (BJ), David (Meghan) and Emily, beloved grandchildren Will and Clara, and brother Joe.

Memorial services for Jerry Feldstein will be held at 11:00 on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Catonsville (2001 Old Frederick Road).

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater DC-Maryland, 1800 M Street Northwest, Suite B50 North, Washington, DC 20036.

My cousin Cindy was fortunate to find this wonderful man early in her life. He was the best thing (person) that ever happened to her and I told him this on more than one occasion. He would respond that she too was the greatest gift he had ever received. Thank you Jerry for being the right person for her and I wish you both joy and peace as you spend eternity together. Craig and I also want to express deep gratitude for your love, friendship and your introduction to us of the progressive rock group The Strawbs. I will always think of the two of you as I listen to the medley "Remembering-You and I (When We Were Young)- Grace Darling".

I did not know Jerry was ill - I would have gone to visit him had I known - and am very surprised and saddened to hear about his passing and so close to his birthday (and mine, too). He was such a sweet baby - I will tell you about his playfulness in the kitchen when Uncle Benny and Aunt Doris lived upstairs from our Bubby in the apt on the 2nd floor of her house. Although I am just a few years older than Jerry, I do remember him as a baby. Know that he is no longer in pain and, hopefully, that is of some comfort to all of you. Keep him and your Mom - a wonderful, sweet lady - in your hearts and they will always be with you. We are planning to come to the service on Saturday. See you then..... Cousin Norma
