Jerry Mortenson, age 79, of Stone Lake, WI and Englewood, FL, formerly of Bloomington, MN passed away March 31, 2017, in FL. After graduating from Augsburg College, Jerry spent his career teaching Junior High math, phy.ed., and shop in Richfield, MN. Following his retirement he spent a few years working in the Media Lab at Kennedy High School in Bloomington. Jerry loved to build things – cars, model boats and airplanes, a hovercraft, houses and a garage. His favorite time was at our lake home in Wisconsin, especially when our granddaughters came to visit.
