Jerry Blumenthal Obituary
Blumenthal, Jerry S. Of Chicago, IL, passed away November 13, 2014. Son of late Mike and Rose Blumenthal; brother of late Alphonse; beloved husband of Vera; and loving father of Sami Blumenthal. A dedicated, award-winning documentary filmmaker (Kartemquin Films), Jerry played a particularly special part in Chicago's film community - inspiring and mentoring both his colleagues at KTQ and students at the University of Chicago (his alma mater). Always to be remembered as the life of the party, Jerry was first to toast his glass, and to entertain with unmatched witty humor. His enthusiasm for hearty laughter, his brilliant eloquence, and his strong passion for storytelling will never be forgotten.
