Dr. Jerry Cockrell is a psychologist, aviator, humorist and in-demand speaker. His ‘down-home’ style and hilarious anecdotes have charmed, educated and entertained audiences around the world. This popular aviation personality has an almost magical way of getting important information across to diverse audiences while captivating them with very real and very funny material.

Jerry’s down-home speaking manner has been characterized as a cross between Zig Zieglar, Jerry Clower, Andy Griffith and Steve Martin, but we think you will find that he truly has a style all his own.
