Jerry Smith dies June 10, 2010

PASO POR PASO and CANADA MAYA SCHOLARSHIPS suffer major loss of co-founder Jerry Smith

by R. Pretty

Apparently Jerry Smith died in his sleep the night of June 10. Oliva Lopez is one of the scholars Jerry recruited for a Canada Maya Scholarship; she saw him Thursday night. He looked tired and ill. When she went to check on him on Friday, he was gone.

The owner of Santander Rooms just off Calle Santander in Panajachel found Jerry Friday morning, informed the police, who then informed the American Embassy who then collected Jerry and the contents of his room.

Only a week ago Jerry offered to come to Canada on a fund raising tour for the scholarships. I am sorry he could make it.
