Sadly, one of the most enthusiastic and generous supporters to the Mises Institute, Jerry Davis, has passed away. Before health issues slowed him, Jerry was a frequent caller to the Institute, providing inspiration, to talk about Austrian economics and liberty, or to order books to be sent to friends or just people he came in contact with. Jerry purchased thousands of books to spread the word of liberty.
His generosity made the Mises Circle in Houston a tradition and set the standard for Mises Circle attendance. Mr. Davis’s sponsorship extended above and beyond, as he worked tirelessly to fill tables. He paid the admission for dozens of attendees in addition to the Institute’s event costs.
Jerry was also an enthusiastic supporter of Mises High School events, sponsoring these programs in Auburn, Houston, and other cities. What he cared about most was for young people to learn about freedom and sound economics.
Jerry was truly one of a kind. Thousands of students have benefited from his kindness, generosity and passion for liberty.
Today, the cause of freedom lost a real warrior. But his legacy will live on through the many he has inspired.
