Jerome Keith Solomon was born December 12, 1964, in the Larimer section of Pittsburgh, PA to Johnnie Bell Dixon and the late Arkinzie Solomon. He was the youngest of ten children. Jerome went by Rome by most.
Jerome attended the Pittsburgh Public Schools. He had a great sense a humor and was always the life of the party. Those that knew Jerome would say that he was outspoken and straight to the point.
In the late 70’s he met Brenda Chatman and they later had his first child Shannel Givner (Chatman). He later met Michele Jones and bore a son Jerome Solomon Jr. Angel Solomon completed the final addition to his legacy.
Jerome, first and foremost was a loving son, brother, and father. He lived his life enduring many challenges but all that knew him could account of how easy-going he was, never allowing his situation or circumstance effect his demeanor. He often tried to look on the bright side.
Throughout his duration of residence, he moved from Pittsburgh to Minneapolis, Minnesota, which became his second home. He lived his last years there. Jerome was an excellent cook; he worked primarily holding various positions in the food industry. During his most recent years in Minneapolis, he developed a love for writing which led him to write and publish two romantic novels.
