Remembering Jerry Spencer

The WV gymnastics community lost a very special man on Thursday – Jerry Spencer. Jerry founded the very 1st private club in WV, Glendale Gymnastics. Almost all WV gymnasts current and past, have come through his gym doors in some capacity. Jerry was a fixture in the WV gymnastics community for over 50 years. He had a special love for children that extended beyond gymnastics into his 34 year teaching career. WV Gymnastics extends our condolences to his wife Danny, sons Lance, Drew and Matt and their extended families.
