You can purchase the jersey patch the Utah Jazz team store both online or in person for the unique price of $12.23, with all proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
This is a cool gesture from the Utah Jazz organization, and a great reminder of the incredible coach and man that we were lucky enough to have lead the squad for 34 years. Hopefully the Jazz will be able to honor the patch as best as they can, by going out and battling in the bubble in Orlando and playing in a way that would make Jerry proud.
