Rest Well, Jerry Houston

The Dallas area lost one of our great voice actors Saturday. Jerry Houston (Litteral) passed away. For me, Jerry was a teacher, mentor, gracious human being, a hoot to be around and a giant talent.

He achieved great success, voicing national spots for big time companies yet never stopped being a student of voice acting until health dictated otherwise. Jerry was encouraging and generous with advice, helping my career and many others.

Beau Weaver remembers Jerry at Radio Daily News.

And here is one of Jerry’s last demos.

    I worked with Jerry in the late 60’s and early 70’s at KEBE/KOOI in Jacksonville, TX. As you so aptly stated, he was a great guy, a monumental talent, and a lot of fun. I am saddened to hear of his passing.

    I had the honor of working with Jerry at PMA&P in Denison, TX throughout the ’80’s. He was an amazing person with an amazing voice. I miss him. Rest in peace, Jerry.
