“Rev. Jerry Amstutz and the entire Autumn Life community provide a service and comfort to families that is immeasurable. Jerry gladly takes the time to genuinely connect with a family’s emotional and spiritual needs in one of life’s most difficult situations. He is completely respectful of one’s wishes regarding a loved one’s service and is to be praised for his ability to understand and care for people.

Jerry displays a delicate skill of getting to know a family and the life story of their loved one, and presents a personal and unique remembrance which honors the deceased and captivates the hearts of those present at the service. His open, kind and non-judgmental personality makes a sincere connection with people of all faiths and ethnicities. The partnership we have with Jerry and Autumn Life has been truly remarkable.”
The Staff at Cress Funeral Homes

“Gunderson’s staff has used Rev. Jerry Amstutz on many occasions. The families always appreciate the time Jerry takes to get to know their loved one. No matter what the circumstances are or the age of the deceased, Jerry has the ability to perform a meaningful, personalized service. His relationship with us has been a huge benefit to the families we serve.”
Mike Smits, Retired General Manager, Gunderson Funeral Homes

“Rev. Jerry Amstutz is a comfort and inspiration to our residents. They look forward to the weekly worship and fellowship he provides. He makes everyone feel welcome whether they are regulars at his service or it’s their first visit. The time he dedicates to their spiritual needs individually is welcomed by all.”
Cindy Viney, Activity Director

“Before I retired as a funeral director, I often called on Pastor Jerry. He spends time with families, planning a service they like. His unique ability to connect with them at a very difficult time is truly his greatest asset. I always heard responses from family, “What a wonderful service and tribute he did for our loved one!”
Gerald Lynch, Whitcomb-Lynch Funeral Home

“Despite never having met my dad, Pastor Jerry captured the essence of who he was.  His eulogy, based on the conversation he had with my family, was the best rendition of his life I could have imagined!  It’s very apparent that he cares deeply about people, their memories, and helping families memorialize their loved ones!”

Cindy Nienhuis

“Pastor Jerry made our son’s service a celebration of his life.  It was as if he knew Chadd.  Many of our family and friends commented on how Jerry’s words touched them.  For as our neighbor said, “he didn’t talk from a book; he talked from his heart.”
