His mum said he has gone to be with the lord that God has called him, that he died on the altar while worshipping God, that the way he played yesterday(The Bass Guitar) he has never played like that before that he Knelt down worshipping and later lay down till after the worship everyone was up but he was still there before they came to raise him up and found out he’s gone 2 rest with the Lord .RIP bro Jay Ray Maya aka E-Major

Another friend, Beckley Marokuty Miles also wrote on Facebook;
“Rest In Peace brother. We played music together many times in Godfrey Okoye university” He slumped and died in church. Jerry was such an upright Christian who lived a life worthy of emulation. I want to quickly remind us of the scripture that says…we should not mourn like the people of the world when a believer dies. Jerry has gone to be with the Lord.”
