I have been blessed all my life to be surrounded by good people; great parents, a wonderful wife, son, and daughter with their spouses and now grandkids. I have been a clergyman most of my life but eleven years ago felt burnout creeping up on me and decided I needed a change of direction. I applied for a position with Gumdrop Books as Saskatchewan rep. but soon realized the need for more Canadian content, especially Aboriginal and First Nations material. My grandkids call me "Papa JerBear" and thus the name, "JerBear Books". The response to my collection both Aboriginal and otherwise has been beyond what I dreamt possible.
I try and deliver most everything I sell for the simple reason that I want my business to be built on relationship and service. I am proud of our province and sales and delivery allows me explore our vast land. I enjoy many close relationships with the clients of JerBear.
The success of this business enables me to do spiritual and humanitarian work in Africa and many of you know I travel there nearly every year for these causes. I also have been enabled to drive my new retro Royal Enfield motorcycle and relive my youthful years. As of last year we have added a nice motorhome to the mix.
Thanks to all of you for your purchases and support. I hope I serve you well! To those of you who I have not yet met I hope you hop on board and sample the books! Call me if I can come and visit you!
My grandson, Keiran Ahmed, continues to manage the website. Here he is!
