JERRY SULOCK

Technician
jsulock@kineticpros.com

Jerry first came to Kinetic Prosthetics as a transfemoral patient in May of 2016.  Getting to ‘peek behind the curtain’ at Kinetic, the technical side of prosthetics interested him.  After deciding to shadow Josh in the lab and helping make his own socket, he liked it enough to join the team in early 2018.  Jerry always enjoyed working with his hands as well as helping out others.  Jerry takes a lot of pride in all of his work here at Kinetic Prosthetics and is currently working towards his Certification as a prothetic technician.  In his free time, Jerry is always upgrading his Jeep for the next off road adventure with his son.  He also rides motorcycles and enjoys spending time outdoors with his family.
