Statement Regarding Public Works Employee Passing

Sissy Muro Juarez, 615-788-2445

Metro Nashville Public Works is mourning the death of longtime employee Jerry Snyder, 60, who died tragically at 9:39 a.m. today in an on-duty single-vehicle crash on Old Hickory Boulevard in Hermitage. Mr. Snyder served with the department for 8 years as a knuckle-boom truck operator and is remembered by his colleagues most recently for his determination in the restoration cleanup after the devastating March 3 tornado.

At the time of this morning’s crash, Mr. Snyder was traveling to recycling sites to pick up Christmas trees. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Snyder’s daily co-workers, family and friends during this difficult time.
