Jerry R. “J.R.” Bergeson, of Golden and Idaho Springs, Colo., a well-known and well-respected oilman and former professor of petroleum engineering at Colorado School of Mines, passed away May 30, 2009. Jerry was born in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1933. He graduated from high school in Calgary, Alberta and went on to receive several degrees from the University of Oklahoma. After teaching from 1964 to 1974 at Colorado School of Mines, he founded Bergeson and Associates, an international oil consulting company in Golden, and he consulted and taught reservoir engineering courses around the world until his retirement in 2008. A dedicated teacher, mentor and friend to many of his students long after they finished his courses, Jerry followed their careers with interest and took pride in their accomplishments. To honor his dedication to education, a scholarship fund has been established in his name with the Colorado School of Mines Foundation (make memorial gifts here). Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Sharon; his mother, Mary; daughter, Debi Kornmaier; son, Michael; stepchildren, Barry and Kelli Anderson; brother, Dale; sister, Barbara Bergeson; and four grandchildren.
