MADISON – The Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from African American Council Chairman Gerard Randall honoring the life of Pastor Jerome Smith Sr.
“Milwaukee and all of Wisconsin lost a great man today as Pastor Jerome Smith Sr. was called home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ. Pastor Smith worked with everyone to improve the lives of people not only in the Milwaukee area but throughout the state of Wisconsin. Pastor Smith was the co-founder of the Joseph Project and drew attention to how lives can be turned around through basic values such as love, respect and hard work.
“He will be deeply missed, but his work will go on. Our prayers are with his wife, First Lady Smith, his entire family, the congregation at Greater Praise Church of God in Christ and the community at this difficult time.”
