Jerry Blaine author of The Kennedy Detail talks about JFK’s assassination - Part One



GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Jerry has lived several different lives – many of them through the government, and through the secret service. He served President Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson.

Greg Hamilton met Jerry at his church. He created an impressive local law catalogue housed at Hamilton library, and he invited Jerry here this week to share stories detailing his life and his role during a critical moment in U.S. History.

Jerry guarded the president throughout his entire presidency, both by his side, and venturing ahead to clear the way.

He set up a route for Kennedy’s car in Dallas, which Jerry tells me Kennedy changed at the last minute and requested a convertible.

Jerry was en route to Kennedy’s next planned tour when an assassin fired on and killed the president.

Decades later, he decided to put the trauma into words. His book, the Kennedy detail, shares what he and other secret servicemen experienced.
