Jerry Mincey & Gary Cooper Jerry Mincey (left), pictured here with Gary Cooper, is the Director of Fruit Procurement for Blue Lakes Citrus Products.

He’s also a musician, singer and songwriter. It’s interesting how he manages to blend the two in his career. I interviewed Jerry to learn more about how he got into song writing while working in the citrus industry.
