Amazing Seniors: Jerry and Esther Krueger

Stories from veterans are some of our favorites at OurSeniors.net, as each story is unique from others and all experiences are one of a kind. That’s why our Amazing Senior for this issue is Jerome (Jerry) Krueger, along with his wife Esther Krueger. They have been married for 72 years and moved to Daytona Beach to live closer to family in the area. These two have stayed active since they met in 1946, with a life full of extraordinary careers behind them and now, a busy schedule working with WISE (Wisdom In Senior Education) at Daytona State College. Jerry is also treasurer of Temple Israel in Ormond Beach. Jerry is a WW2 veteran who served in the Army Air Corps as a flight radio operator.

After falling three times within one year, she knew she had to make a change. Her two dogs that she loves very much were holding her back from upgrading her life because she didn’t want to lose them or send them to someone she didn’t trust. After going from moving around with a cane to being wheelchair bound, she decided she couldn’t keep making excuses. The OurSeniors Team “took the bull by the horns,” Barbara said, “and moved at an unbelievable speed.” The OurSeniors Team began Barbara’s transition first with legal assistance to understand the full picture and next steps and then pairing her with the team’s real estate agent that got her house painted, packed up and ready to sell. To everyone’s surprise, the house was sold within two days, making the whole transition a total of just three weeks’...
