Jerry R will be deeply missed! Rest in peace...

I received an e-mail from Jerry R's children. I had signed up to receive his weekly upgrading mutual fund reports for the past year or two. Here is the e-mail...

This is Jerry Rubin's son and daughter sending this message. By now you are probably wondering why you have not received your weekly mutual fund report the past two weeks. For the last two weeks, Dad was in the hospital battling complications from leukemia and chemotherapy. Dad's condition took a turn for the worse yesterday morning. He was transferred back to ICU after developing sepsis and respiratory issues. Our father passed away peacefully about 9:40 last night. There will not be any additional mutual fund reports.

One of Dad's great joys in life was studying the market and writing his weekly mutual fund reports and he appreciated your interest.

If you are interested in making a donation in our father's memory, please make your donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society:

    I am sorry to hear this sad news.:( RIP Jerry.

    In this case we were able to hear from family. There have been other people that stopped posting. We will probably never know what happened to them.
  • Reply to @Investor: There were several active posters, i.e. Fundmental.
  • we are sorry for your loss, especially this holiday season. May he be with the Savior and he is indeed in a MUCH better place than us.
  • Hi DAK,

    Thanks for letting us know of Jerry's passing. I sent condolences to his family to the email address listed below in your post and found it to still be active.

    I think all will agree that Jerry was a most genuine person who was willing to help others along the path of investing. I know, I will miss his post.

    Thanks again for letting us know ... It is indeed appreciated.

  • Condolences to the Rubin family. I have not known Jerry that long but I have benefited considerably. He was a very intelligent but modesl person who loved to help others. We will miss him every Tuesday night.
  • Hear is a second e-mail from his children.

    Dad's memorial service is planned for 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 28 at Gentry-Morrison Dukes Steen Beacon Hill Chapel. The obituary should appear in tomorrow's paper, The Lakeland Ledger, which is also online (

    Thank you for all your e-mails expressing your condolences. They are a great source of comfort for our family and a wonderful tribute to him.

  • His newsletter was very helpful for me.

    He will be greatly missed.
  • Very sad to hear about this. As others mentioned, Jerry was genuinely interested in sharing his knowledge and sent his reports for free to anyone interested. My prayers are with his family.
