In his fourth game (#1794, aired 1992-05-21), Jerome set a new single-day cash winnings record of $34,000, breaking the previous record of $30,600 set by Frank Spangenberg in his fifth game (#1241, aired 1990-01-15). Unadjusted for doubled dollar values, Jerome's record lasted almost 10 years, until Ben Sternberg broke it with a $38,400 finish in his third game (#4076, aired 2002-04-29). Adjusted for doubled dollar values, Jerome's record lasted over 12 years, until Ken Jennings broke it with a $75,000 finish in his thirty-eighth game, the last game of Season 20 (#4595, aired 2004-07-23).

In his fifth game (#1795, aired 1992-05-22 ), Jerome set a new second-place record for regular play cash winnings of $96,801. (Frank Spangenberg's 5-day cash winnings record was $102,597.) This second-place record lasted throughout the pre-doubled dollar values era.

Won $5,000 on Win Ben Stein's Money, and later became a writer/researcher for the show.
