Gerald L. Tuttle, Jr.

Dear clients and friends:

On Sunday, January 28, 2007, after a sudden illness, we lost our beloved co-founder, Jerry Tuttle.

Jerry was not only our partner and passionate advocate for our cause, he was a true and dear friend to many of us here at JMP and in the financial and business community. We are committed to honoring Jerry’s professional and personal spirit and to preserving his legacy.

Jerry’s family has established a scholarship fund in his honor at The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, where Jerry earned his undergraduate degree.¬†Donations made will benefit deserving students and will preserve Jerry’s memory forever. Contributions can be made by check, written out to “Jerry Tuttle Scholarship Fund,” and should be sent to:
