He dabbled in many areas of business, real estate and entertainment. Jerry's business acumen allowed him to travel the world many times and provide his family with an amazing lifestyle.

Everyone who met him knew he was a "one of a kind", "larger than life" personality. He made friends everywhere he went. He had a special way to connect to people and always had an anecdote to offer. His family and friends affectionately referred to his as "The Jer." Not only was Jerry the patriarch of his family, he was an adoring husband to his wife of nearly 51 years, Linda (Reynolds).

Rehrer, Esquire (John Heims), of Brick, Victoria L. Rehrer, Esquire (Richard Hoffman) of Point Pleasant and Gina M. Rehrer (Frederick Philipp) of Point Pleasant. His legacy continues on with his 6 adoring grandchildren, ranging from 14 to 6, Jack Heims, Tori Hoffman, Grace Heims, Lily Heims, Ricky Hoffman and Freddy Philipp and niece, Lauren Philipp. Jerry loved exotic cars and fast boats and enjoyed them through the years. He was known for his ruffled shirts, diamond rings and flashy persona. Jerry most loved making deals. His business mind never stopped.
