Jerry C. Wright, president of Texas Glass Association and owner of AAA Glass & Mirror, passed away last night.

Wright, who spent decades in the industry and has served as the president at National Glass Association, was 67 years old. He passed away yesterday from complications of open heart surgery last month.

In 2002, Wright was named one of USGlass magazine’s “People to Watch.” In that article, Wright said he would like to be remembered as “a participant of life, and not a spectator. … I believe we should bloom where we are planted, and that we should leave this world in better shape than we found it to be!”

Wright’s hobbies were fishing, hunting, golf and public speaking. He was an industry leader on many levels and was also a lieutenant governor for Kiwanis International, where he served as a volunteer for sponsored youth work in local high schools.

    Jerry was one of the first people I met in the industry back in 1988. He was always a good ole’ boy from Texas and he was a lot of fun to talk to. He always had a great story to tell and was always heavily invested in making the auto glass industry a better place. Jerry you will be missed my friend, may you rest in peace. My condolences to to the Wright family.
