Dr. Cedric “Jim” Jimerson, a resident at The Heritage of Green Hills, was one of a few dozen Berks County centenarians and soon-to-be centenarians honored at a recent luncheon at the Inn at Reading in Wyomissing.

Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Jimerson is a World War II veteran with two Battle Stars and joined Reading’s Community General Hospital as the only board-eligible surgeon who had completed a formal surgical residency at an approved university hospital.

He retired as the chair of the department of surgery.

Dr. Jimerson will celebrate his 100th birthday this August.
