When Jerry went to prison, it was Herrera who offered him any assistance he needed, including help with escape. When Colombians were sent to a prison where Jerry was incarcerated, Herrera made certain they contacted Jerry to pay their respect. Herrera was one of the reasons inmates gave Jerry respect.
I don’t know if Herrera still lives, nor did Jerry. In the last few years, he had lost contact with the Colombians, though he contended to the end they would help him if asked.
Herrera would often be the one to pay Jerry the $2 million after each delivery. Jerry would drive his truck to Miami, where the money would be loaded into the truck, then driven back to Fort Lauderdale. Herrera offered to transfer the money to any place Jerry chose, but Jerry wanted it in his hands. Curiously, he only had one close call with the police during this transfer and was never robbed. The only robbery attempt was when someone broke into one of Jerry’s houses, but no money, fortunately, was there, since Jerry had moved it to another site.
Herrera enjoyed Jerry’s yacht, named THE BITUMINOUS because Jerry was posing as a coal baron. He would use it to entertain lady friends.
One of Jerry’s regrets was in not seeing his old friend before death visited.
