Message: It was my honor and privilege to co-chair the United Synagogue Commission on Social Action and Public Policy with Judge Jerry for several years. He was at all times a champion for human rights and dignity, and became my personal role model in the area of public service. There are stars in the universe whose light reaches the Earth long after they have been extinguished. The light created and maintained by Judge Jerry during his lifetime will illuminate the Earth long after his passing showing us all the path to goodness and righteousness. How fortunate we all are that Judge Jerry lived and served among us. Scott H. Kaplan

Message: Judge Wagner was one of the finest members of the Connecticut Judiciary that I had the pleasure to work with for the past 40 years. He had a great legal mind and his decisions were always well researched and articulate. Moreover he was a true gentleman and friend, proud of his profession and his religion. He was always available to share his experience with others, through professional discussions or just amiable chats. He will be missed by all.

Message: I well recall Jerry telling the story that he was a young lawyer, just getting started in Hartford, when he received a telephone call from Mel Katz's father, inviting him to get involved in Jewish community life. At one time Jerry served on some 26 different Boards. He told me that he always tried to have dinner at home and then he would be off to one and sometimes two or three meetings a night. When he spoke on a issue or problem it was from the heart and with a deep understanding of the history and consequences. His approach may not have carried the day, every time, but it was always well reasoned and based upon a sense of compassion for others. He was quite a guy. Beth and I send out heartfelt condolences.

Message: Dear family For my 19 years at the united synagogue i had the ongoing honor of knowing the judge. As a distinguished leader, Jew and really smart guy he often had insight and wisdom before the others present. He served on the Committee of Congregation Standards which I directed for more than 16 years. I always knew where to go to get a correct answer. Zecher Tzadik L'vracha... Moshe Edelman
