Jerry Ziemkiewicz


Deacon Jerry was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio. He is married to Sandy and they have two adult children, Hope and Adam. They moved to the Nashville area in September of 2017 and reside in Smyrna. He was ordained a Deacon in May of 1988 for the Diocese of Cleveland. He currently works for International Liturgy Publications as Senior Manager and is a Mission presenter for Faith On Fire Missions.

Deacon Jerry began his career in Radio Broadcasting which led to positions in marketing and advertising. For the past 24 years he has served in fulltime ministry for the church. He worked as a parish youth minister in two Cleveland parishes. In 2006 he moved to Toledo Ohio and served as Coordinator of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Toledo. In July of 2012 Deacon Jerry was appointed Pastoral Leader for Saint Richard Parish in Swanton, Ohio. At the parish there was not a priest pastor and so he and his wife lived at the parish and he was responsible for the day to day operations and the spiritual and temporal goods.

He enjoys music and playing keyboard at home for his own relaxation. He is a big fan of professional sports especially the Cleveland Indians, Cavs and Browns. Deacon Jerry is grateful for the assignment at St. Edward and looks forward to meeting new folks and using his gifts and experience in ministry to help build the kingdom and working together to form disciples.
