Rest in peace, Jerry Judge, Johnny’s bodyguard and friend for 20 years.

We on Johnny Depp Network would like to express our sincerest condolences to Johnny and Mr. Jerry Judge’s family and friends. Today, April 06, 2019 one of Johnny’s close friends and his bodyguard for 20 years, Jerry Judge, has passed away. He was known as the “Life Angel” and was spotted on the red carpet, on movie sets, on tour alongside Johnny and even inspired his own fan page.

He also guarded Paul McCartney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Antonio Banderas and Julia Roberts. Apart from being on Johnny’s side to ensure his security, he had cameos in several of Johnny’s films including “Sweeney Todd“. He was not only known as Johnny’s bodyguard and security, but mostly a friend and a helping hand on Johnny’s side. THANKS for everything you’ve done for him. We know you’re in a peaceful place now and taken great care of in heaven. Rest in peace, dear Jerry!.

    My heart is heavy and so very sad for Jerry’s family, but also for the Depps and Paradis families. Jerry was a bright and Shining Star standing in Johnny’s shadow being not only his protector but also his closest confidant and TRUE friend. I know Johnny will feel lost without Jerry by his side! I believe and trust Jerry will continue to watch over, guide and protect Johnny from afar. Jerry was truly one of the best! I’m praying for piece and comfort for Jerry’s family and everyone who knew him. Jerry was someone truly very special!😇🤗

    Unable to learn cause of Mr.Judge passing. He had not appeared ill. Such a diligent carer for JD & for many others. Seemed a lovely man, & also JD witness for upcoming litigation. Very sad to hear he passed!! God rest his soul & condolences to all involved!!

    These news are devastating. Being a fan of Johnny since Pirates 1, I have become a fan of Jerry Judge, too. Because this gentleman was an extraordinary bodyguard – firm, but so friendly to those standing on the other side of the barricade. I had the privilege to watch Mr. Judge do his incredible job at the premiere of “Mort- decai” and I will never forget him.
    RIP, sir.
