He was born in 1946 in Senegal, and travelled to the Gambia in 1968. Back then, there were not many artisans in Gambia, so he taught many people. He got married in the Gambia, where he created a family of 2 boys and 4 girls. He trained his 2 sons, who decided to travel to Senegal, where they currently work and live, but they often visit their father in Gambia. Jerry learnt from his father, who was a great artist, capable of doing anything he could imagine. He loves his profession, but if he was offered a different road, he would be a business man, because he also enjoyed buying and selling, and taking care during 3 years of his father’s shop when he was young and his father had to travel.
