The Capital District of Kiwanis International (composed of all the Kiwanis Clubs in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia) was organized on August 29, 1918 with only two clubs. Now, over 100 years later, the Capital District remains active with 7 regions, 20 divisions and over 170 clubs.
Kiwanis International is a global community of clubs, members and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time. Today, we stand with more than 550,000 members from K-Kids to Key Club to Kiwanis and many ages in between in 80 countries and geographic areas. Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children, such as fighting hunger, improving literacy and offering guidance.
Kiwanis clubs host nearly 150,000 service projects each year.
It is with great sadness that the Capital District of Kiwanis International announces the passing of 2001-2002 Governor and 2009-2012 Kiwanis International Trustee Jerome Peuler.
No service will be held, at Jerry's request. Internment will be held at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. Jerry was committed to and stayed involved in Kiwanis until his very last day. ... See MoreSee Less
He was a lovely man and a true kiwanian through and through. He will be missed tremendously.
So sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. I was honored to serve as Capital District CKI governor during his term as Kiwanis governor. Such a great role model. He will be missed.
Words are hard to describe the characteristics Jerry possessed. He was a great man and will be missed.
Jerry was one of my favorites. I appreciated his cheerful nature and willingness to help. His annual appearance at DCON in a tri-cornered hat to make the proclamations is a wonderful memory and an example of his shining personality. He will be missed.
The outpouring of love for Jerry from around the world is a testament to all that he gifted to us- leadership, friendship, humor, mentorship and so much more. I know I am not alone when I say he will be missed.
Condolences 🙏 to the family. 🙏 RIP.
Jerry was a good man and devoted public servant. He will be sorely missed.
We are so dad to hear this news. Jerry was always there to help! He will be missed.. ❤️
I am so sad to hear of this loss, I learned a lot from Mr. Peuler while I was working with him.
Jerry was everybody's friend. He was caring, considerate and humble but had a sparkle in his eyes and a smile that made the world a sunnier place. RIP my friend.
A phenomenal man. Thank you for your service Sir. 🇺🇸 May angels lead you in. 💙
I am so sorry for the districts loss.
Condolence to the bereaved family and to Kiwanis international
My condolences to his wife Judith and his family. Jerry was my Governor the year I served as Lt. Governor of old Division 12. He was a great leader, gentleman, and mentor. That was the year KI convention was held in his hometown, New Orleans. Jerry made sure we had a great time, and our District Dinner was at a fabulous culinary school/restaurant. He also provided us with places we must visit and dine. Then in 2012 we revisited New Orleans to support his candidacy for International President, but it was not to be.
