Default Jerry Wyss aka JWMods passed away

I'm sorry to report that Jerry Wyss isn't doing too good right now as he contracted Hepatitus C while overseas serving our nation. It's the nastiest form of it as it can lie dormant in a body then attack at any time. Right now things aren't looking good as he's in a Hospice.
Jerry has been one if not the person on this site who is most knowledgable about modding Thunder Tiger engines. While most people don't bother with them he found a lot of potential in them.
Being self-employed he doesn't have an income so there is a fund for him and his family with a person collecting money for him but until I get approval from the Mod's in here to post that info, I will save that for later.
