Former CNN cameraman Jerry Thompson has died.

An email…from FNC cameraman and longtime friend John Wallace:

Former CNN camerman Jerry Thompson passed away this weekend. Ines, his wife, says it was peaceful and that he was well taken care of. She hopes to have a memorial service next Saturday in Leesburg. She has not finalized plans  with a church yet but would like to have a short service with a reception afterwards per Jerry’s request. If anyone is considering bringing a meal to the house she asks that she’d rather have people bring something to the reception. No word on flowers but I will ask. She is considering a fund for a memorial tree to be planted in Jerry’s name. She is extremely grateful for all of your love, compassion and prayers. I will update when I have more details.
Thanks everybody.
