Memorial Service Set for Joe Perry

Posted by Taylor Price on May 20, 2011 – 11:28 AM

A Bay Area memorial service has been set for San Francisco 49ers great Joe “The Jet” Perry, who passed away in Arizona on Monday, April 25, 2011.

The service will take place Saturday, May 21, at 1 p.m. in San Francisco at the Academy of Art University Morgan Auditorium.

Nicknamed “The Jet” for his exceptional speed, Perry was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1969 following a professional career that spanned 16 seasons. He later had his No. 34 jersey retired by the 49ers in 1971. Perry played 14 seasons for the 49ers (1948-1960, ’63) and two for the Baltimore Colts (1961-62) as a fullback. He remains San Francisco’s all-time leader in rushing yards (7,344) and rushing touchdowns (50). Perry led the team in rushing on eight occasions, including seven consecutive seasons (1949-1955).
