Jerry Lewis aka 9th Ward King Memorial Second Line

If you spent anytime in New Orleans 9th Ward over the past few decades you certainly saw Jerry Lewis dancing or cutting up somewhere between Desire and Bywater. He was a neighborhood legend.

“Jerry Lewis done gone and died” my neighbor lady hollered out to me yesterday afternoon. She didn’t have any details on his death but mentioned that there would be a memorial second line that evening at Sampson Park just right up the street.
