About the JERK League
Six years ago, four men formed a once-a-week golf group. Since all groups need a name, the men each took the first letter of their first name and came up with “JRRC”. The original JRRC’s (James Redmond, Reggie Primeau, Ryan Potts and Craig Berry) expanded in the following year to include twelve new members and changed their name to the “JERK League.” The JERKs share a love of golf and their community and they now annually host a charity golf tournament. To date, they have raised more than $13,000 and collected countless wish list items for local charities.
