Gerald Campbell

Jerry Campbell is a native Coloradoan, born in Meeker, CO, and raised in Montrose, Springfield and Boulder. He earned his B.S. summa cum laude with a double major in molecular, cellular and developmental biology and chemistry. Moving to New York City, he earned his Ph.D. at Rockefeller University, during which time he married his wife, Sharon. After five years at New York University m\Medical Center as a postdoctoral fellow, they escaped from New York to St. Louis, where Jerry worked at two biomedical firms, Kinetek and Centocor. When Centocor closed the St. Louis facility he relocated to Pennsylvania, where he worked briefly for DNX before becoming permanently disabled with chronic fatigue syndrome in 1993. Music and Masonic activities keep his spirits up, along with three wonderful and thoroughly spoiled poodles.

Jerry started on alto saxophone in Springfield in fifth grade, switched to baritone sax in junior high in 1967, and played bari in both concert and jazz bands at Fairview High School. He also played in the All Centennial Band in high school. Fairview came in Second in the 1972 and 1973 Cañon City Blossom Festival in the marching band (half-time) field show contest. Jerry played one semester at the University of Colorado marching band, along with Sharon; fortunately, they did not meet at that time.

Jerry played briefly with an improv group on alto sax at Rockefeller, and many others since then. They include the New York City Auxiliary Police Band, New York University Concert Band, Merrimac Community College (St. Louis) Band, a wonderful little summer band in O'Fallon, near St. Louis, the Bucks County (PA) Community College Symphonic Band, Mercer County (NJ) Community Band, the Colorado State University-Pueblo Wind Ensemble, Pueblo Municipal Band, Southern Colorado Community Band, and Al Kaly Shrine Band, plus a few other groups very briefly. He trades off between alto sax and baritone, and finally gave in and tried tenor sax at the Southern Colorado band, which he still plays.

He was delighted to find the Pueblo Municipal Band when he moved to Pueblo in 2001, which he and his wife promptly joined in 2002. He has fond memories of many summer band concerts, and especially enjoys the PMB's camaraderie and conductors.
