Jerry’s Community Feature Employee: Denis Grady

Jerry and the Navarra family have been turning houses into homes for 62 years in Southern California. It’s our community and we take that seriously. Here, we’d like to highlight some of our employees who take this mission seriously as well. In their own time, from their own hearts, they also serve. We couldn’t be more proud to introduce you to these very special members of the Jerome’s Family.

How’d you choose it?

Our nephew Connor died from complications following a premature birth, and our daughter Claire died during birth almost 9 years ago. Premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death and many lifelong disabilities. Almost 500,000 premature birth occur every year. It’s too many. The funds we raise with March for Babies supports research that saves baby’s lives.


It’s one of the few activities that eases the pain of our losses. So far, we’ve raised over $60,000 and we aren’t going to stop until this problem is solved.
