The Luxemburg Chamber of Commerce named Jerry Simonar its 2018 Person of the Year. You could say it’s an honor long in coming because Jerry Simonar is 87-years-old and you cannot talk about business in Luxemburg without mentioning the Simonar family.
Even approaching 90, Jerry Simonar still puts in eleven-hours daily at Simonar’s Shell, which is close to the other businesses he started and watches carefully. He started Simonar Sports, which sells ATV’s and snowmobiles, after a visit north of the border.
Jerry Simonar says he hasn’t really thought about retirement but will likely give it some more serious thought when he turns 100.
