Welcome to Jerry Tanaka's web site

I am a resident of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
I was born at Yokosuka U.S. Naval Base (near Tokyo),
Japan on March 13, 1956. My father is retired US Navy
and therefore our family has lived in various locations
during my early years. I have one younger brother, Mike
who is married to Linette (photo). After my father retired
from the Navy in 1976, our family settled into Hayward,
California which I consider my home town and state.
I am a retired Lockheed-Martin (LM) employee (July 5, 1978 to
April 29, 2011). In my post LM retirement years, I worked for
NASA at nearby White Sands. I finally retired for good on
on April 20, 2021. In my spare time I design web pages, enjoy
fishing, travel to various historical places and play chess.
