Gary A. Jenkins, an entertainment attorney who lived in Scarsdale, N. Jenkins had summered on the Vineyard for more than half a century. He was Blige, Notorious B. He was also one of the early mentors to Sean P. Diddy Combs, and served as a music supervisor on the film Strictly Business, which featured Oscar winner Halle Berry in her first feature film role.
On March 15, as the coronavirus pandemic was just beginning to unfold on the Vineyard, Mr. Jenkins posted a comment on a story that ran on the Gazette website, as part of a conversation thread about summer residents seeking shelter in their Vineyard homes. As a lifelong summer resident of the island 52 yearsI do in fact see merit in both positions expressed on this thread.
Similarly, to those seeking to leave the big city and seek social distancing at their summer home on MV where there is literally more room to breathe, it is their absolute right to do so as tax paying property owners. As the aliens behind the chaos said in their epilogue, humans are easily turned from loving, caring creatures into hateful monsters simply by inserting some Oak bluffs MA wife swapping and insecurity into their lives. This is not the time to attack each other; our beloved Island needs to prepare for the coming storm, as the corona virus will surely impact its shores, just as the seasonal residents must make sure we are not carriers of the virus before we return.
We must remain neighborly and courteous and continue to love each other in the wake of this terrible scourge; if not, we risk losing our humanity, and the corona virus will be the least of our worries. He is survived by his wife Maria and their two sons, his brother Dr. Wallace Jenkins and mother Marie Jenkins.
