Fighting for Chief Jerry: Help a Thief River Falls Firefighter Save His Life
He’s been saving lives for 32 years, but now he needs you to help save his.
Jerry Stenseth was forced to retire early from his career as Thief River Falls Co-Fire Chief after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Jerry underwent surgery in the fall at Sanford. It was a procedure scheduled for nine hours. It lasted 15.
Since then, he’s had three more surgeries. Family and friends have put together a benefit to help cover the growing costs.
“Yeah I got my water proof mascara ready it’s going to be emotional and I know Dad he’s really weak but he wants to be there so he will do anything for anyone else,” says Jerry’s daughter, Sarah Robinson.
The benefit will be at the Eagles Club in Thief River Falls this Thursday from 4 to 7 P.M.
There will be a silent and live auction along with a spaghetti dinner.
Top prizes include a seven day trip to Jamaica with an additional $1,000 in airfare costs.
