This is an internet scam attempt.  One of our staff received the same email, allegedly from her nephew.  Someone has apparently hacked into Jerry's email account and sent this to addresses in his contact list.

I am just curious, can someone check on Jerry to see if he is dead or alive,
or if someone stole his phone/laptop to get this message to me.  I remember
the email address from Florida Society for Histotechnology, I am wondering
if this is real or if someone is assuming his identity overseas, foul play,

Help! I'm sorry to be emailing you like this, but I am in need of some
urgent assistance. As  you have know, I've been traveling through Europe.
But last night in Scotland, my worst fears came true. As we were headed back
to the hotel, we were robbed but a crazy man with a knife. He took our bags,
wallets, and phones. We have no credit cards or cash.Thankfully, we had left
our passports in the safe at the hotel. We need to get back home, but we
have no way to get to our flight in Germany that leaves for home next week.

Right now our only option is to fly home from here. We need some money so we
can purchase tickets to get to JFK, and then fly home from there. As soon as
we get back home, I can repay you, I just need to get some cash to get
there. If you can help, send me an email back, we have internet access from
the lobby in the hotel. I'm sorry to bother you, I just didn't know how else
to contact everyone quickly Thanks!
