Jerry West Personal life 

Jerry West got married to Martha Jane Kane, his wag from college in 1960 and divorced 16 years later with 3 boys. Two years later, he and Karen got married and both have 2 boys together—the youngest featured in the West Virginia’s college team and got married to a golfer in 2019.

Jerry West is an introvert and also a restless and timid person. One of the reasons for his failed marriage with Martha Jane is attributed to his shyness and quietness.

Jerry West's Statue at Staples Center

During his 1st few years, West was mildly jested at by his teammates because of his Appalachian accent and his Virginia’s native high-pitched style of speaking.

West’s personality as a hard worker makes him a mentor and motivator to other people especially young basketball prospects and heroes.

West’s statue was erected at the Star Plaza, Los Angeles, California in 2011 and was honoured with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Donald Trump in 2019.

In 2011 West and Jonathan Coleman collaborated to publish an account about his life.
