He was often found racing in Lake St Clair, the Little Traverse Bay, and the Port Huron to Mackinac race. Jerry is survived by his wife Leslie, his three children, Wendy (Frank) Hamm of Boston MA and his sons Todd Blake (Diane) and Mark Blake (Amy) both of Ross, CA and five grandchildren Charlotte, Graham, Sam, Henry and Olivia. He is further survived by his sister Judy Beck and brother Steve Blake. He also has left his beloved dog Sage II. He was preceded in death by his parents George and Mary Blake.

A celebration of his life is being planned for this summer in Harbor Springs.

His family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
