Thank you: Words that come to mind when talking about the late Jerry O'Keefe. We have a lot for which to thank Jerry O'Keefe. We thank him for his public service in the state legislature and as Mayor of Biloxi. We thank him for his outstanding military service to this country as a World War II fighter pilot who distinguished himself as an ace. We thank him for his vision and millions of dollars in donations to get the Ohr-O'Keefe museum built.
