Jerry Jacene, a fossil ...

salon.glenrose.net [cached]

Jerry Jacene, a fossil modeler from Tennessee, had been in town for some unrelated activity and saw some tracks. In this week's Glen Rose Reporter, Jerry Jacene took credit for finding the tracks and there was a christening of one of the tracks for a little girl who is a beneficiary of the Make a Wish foundation.

...
If that were trespassing, that same principle would apply to Jacene. From Oct 20 2010 Glen Rose Reporter
Jerry Jacene didn't know what he was going to find when, out of curiousity as a paleontologist, he went exploring laste Sunday afternoon in the carved out hills behind the Comfort Inn & Suites off US Highway 67. He spotted them almost immediately in the rock bed by a trickling stream fed by a seep in the hillside. Dinosaur tracks. "I was walking around there and I found those tracks and I'm looking for a sign to explain the site". Jacene said. "Someone's got to know about this. Jacene went into the hotel where he was staying and found Nirav "Nick" Patel, the general manager..... Looking for a place to stay, he chose the Comfort Inn because he saw the rock walls behind it.....
...
I allowed this only because I thought you had an interesting argument to make re: trespassing, although I personally find it an invalid argument unless it also applies to Mr Jacene.

Hmmm, so Jerry did exactly what we did EXCEPT we did it a full year before he even came to Glen Rose. That print story now confirms what he said in the video story. EXCELLENT detective work there "Miss Salon"! Thank you.
...
@go figure, it's Jerry that's the interloper here not us!
...
I've sent only good wishes to Mr. Jacene and Larry Smith regarding the future development of site.
...
It turns out that Smith was not that "angry" at me as Jerry said, that's just another JerryWorld lie to go with the bogus Tresspassing threat.
...
Someone with DPS informed me that when Jacene was down here he helped excavate a Mammoth tusk from some guy's land to be sold to that absurd Creation Museum. Well, there's a fossil now lost to proper scientific study! Thanks Jerry! I myself have found ONE fossil (a new pterosaur) that would have been worth money (thousands) and I did the only proper thing and donated it to SMU. Google "Aetodactylus halli" to read about the new pterosaur I discovered. I've never bought, sold, or traded any fossils except one pretty fossil I bought at Fossilmania. Jerry tried to slander me as a "prospecter", whatever that means.
It should be noted that Jacene is neither a degreed or academic "paleontologist" but uses the label to get himself into places that would normally be closed to non-professionals. Must be nice! He is also NOT a member of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology even though tried to hide under their umbrella by saying we violated S.V.P. rules.
Other than that I'm sure he's quite knowlegable.
Also he wanted to go forward with co-writing a scientific paper (I assume Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology) with the well-respected Dr. James O. Farlow where I'm sure only HIS name would be attached to the tracks in the introductory paragraph regarding history. If he would have given a false history about these tracks he would have commited scientific fraud in my opinion. What a guy!
...
It has since been revealed to me (via a popular fossil forum) that Jerry Jacene himself has been caught on land in Montana (I believe) that he had been told not to collect from or previously thrown off of.
In Montana "poachers" take dinosaur bones off private and federal lands to be sold on the black market (not saying), or personal collections, or trade, or whatever. You see that stuff is actually *valuable*. Jerry could have just stepped across a fallen barb wire fence to "prospect" a hillside for future study.
Anyway it's quite ridiculous and dishonest for Jerry himself to call people looking for worthless shell molds and urchins in a drainage ditch between commercial properties "trespassers" or "prospectors".

Jerry Jacene is the Field Director and Paleontologist for the Makoshika Dinosaur Museum (MDM) in Glendive, Montana and the director and Paleontologist for the Glen Rose Texas Dinosaur Track Site of Glen Rose Texas.

salon.glenrose.net [cached]

I wonder if Mr. Huckaby had any contact with anyone (ie. Mike Ford, Kathryn Jones, Jerry Jacene, Larry Smith, Nick Patel, and whoever else from the City) involved with the Joanna's Tracks business before the "discovery" was announced in the newspaper in late October 2009.

...
The reason I ask is because Billy Huckaby was the one City contact I REPORTED the new dinosaur trackway to a full 10 months before paleo-developer Jerry Jacene came into the picture (and got defacto credit for discovery, hmmmm).
...
Mr. Huckelberry had like 8 or 10 high quality digital photographs of "Joanna's Tracks" from ME dated Jan. 13 or 14, 2010, a full 10 months before Jacene (now developer) "discovered" them.
...
Hell, why didn't Jacene do this or make an effort to report the tracks himself to the local professionals as we did. Are these stupid errors connected to the fact that Jacene took less than 2 weeks (prolly even less) to yank off his paleo hat and slap on a hard hat?? Maybe the land owner was right when he said in the newspaper this "was meant to be" Hmmmm, indeed.
...
Enough of the bashing of Jerry Jacene. I've known him for years and he is not interested in fame and fortune. He has a great love of paleontology and of teaching children. He has worked with Make-A-Wish, students at numerous museums and Boy Scout groups.

Jerry Jacene of Kingsport, TN -Where Is He Now? (March 2011)-Updated March 25

19 March 2011 at 12:39:25 PM
salon
I haven't read any local news at all since January 1st (taking a much needed mental break from sludge), but wondered the other day whatever happened to Jerry Jacene, unofficial paleontologist (as am I). When last I looked, Jacene, after getting free rent and subsidies to move his museum from one location to another, said goodbye to the freebies and was packing up.
What happened to his museum? An association in Kingsport were going to buy all of his exhibits, including a T-Rex dinosaur. Well, they were going to, until they, ooops, found out that the T-Rex dinosaur exhibit is part of a federal lawsuit. One company that deals with fossils apparently lent another company some specimens. The lawsuit claims that the second company took castings of the fossils without permission, including the T-Rex skeleton.. and Jacene must somehow have purchased one of those allegedly unauthorized castings. Here's more from the Rapid City Journal which article says that the castings were sold to at least 5 other museums, including, apparently, Jerry Jacene's. It's not clear to me if the museum association in Kingsport bought all of Jacene's exhibits except the T-Rex.
So where is Mr Jacene? Could be that he's here in Glen Rose with a backhoe!
Dinosaur Dig - Glen Rose Texas - March 19-26, 2011 More on the dinosaur tracks found at Glen Rose, Texas In the quarry, behind the Comfort Inn, in Glen Rose, TX, three sets of tracks were found in the mud turned to rock. They were going different directions so Jerry Jacene said that this must have been a "prehistoric intersection." "The first set of tracks had three toes and claws that belonged to a meat eater. Jacene said. Jacene believes that these tracks were made by the predatory Acrocanthosaurus. Another track looked like a big round mud hole. It was made by a Sauropod, a four-legged vegetable eater with a long neck and long tail, Jacene said. The other track appeared to have been made by an Iguanadon, a large, plant eating dinosaur that lived during the Cretaceous period. Source: Glen Rose Reporter, October 20, 2010 We have been invited to join Paleontologist Jerry Jacene to help uncover dinosaur tracks found in Glen Rose, Texas. He plans to have a backhoe take off dirt down to within 4-5 feet of the rock and uncover the rest by hand. That's where we come in. Imagine being the first person seeing a dinosaur track, they say was made millions of years ago.
Update: I noticed an article in the Central News Now about Jacene and Glen Rose, written by Britney Glaser.
...
Jacene is apparently still not telling people that neither Make A Wish nor the little girl's parents knew he was coming to Glen Rose; he continues to infer that he was in Glen Rose at the behest of the Make A Wish foundation. Also, his story has changed about how he found the tracks. In the article in the Glen Rose Reporter, he said that he went out and explored and THEN told the Comfort Inn Manager.
"I was walking around there and I found those tracks and I'm looking for a sign to explain the site", Jacene said. Soemone's got to know about this". Jacene went into the hotel wher ehe was staying and found Nirav "Nick" Patel, the general manager.
...
Jacene asked. "Are you kidding me?
...
Jacene chose to stay at Comfort Inn & Suites, which has a cliff and creek bed directly behind its property. Looking out his window, Jacene got a hunch about what could be lurking on this land. "What I did," says Jacene, "is when I talked to the front desk, I asked if I could come back here and look around."
What Jacene found was a paleontologist's dream. "They're dated about 110 million," says Jacene, "give or take a week or two!"
Why the difference? Might be because, when Jacene found out that someone else, Lance Hall, was saying that he had discovered the dinosaur tracks previously, he accused Hall of trespassing, which he himself had done.
Jacene has a charmed life. Not a degreed paleontologist, but as much of one as I am, he got the city of Kingsport to subsidize him and his failing museum for a year, and then, when the rent ran out, gosh, here he is in Glen Rose, with some varying stories that don't match.
...
Jacene stated to me he was gonna get local paleo and univeristy groups involved, maybe later I hope. Instead, he has to coax an out-of-state "gem and mineral" group 540 miles to be the first to break dirt.
...
The Kingsport Museum Association bought most of the exhibits that Jerry "owned". We did not buy the so called fort peck rex, as it was illegally casted by Jerry himself.
...
I've heard from an online source that Jerry is gonna build a new musem in GR which was predicted here last year. I've had interesting messages from two separate people regarding Jerry and the museum.
From source 1: " ***** was hunting with Mike this spring (At "my" spot), and he found a Pteronodon wing. Mike told ***** that he couldn't keep it, and he would take it and donate it to the museum his friend is working on down in Texas. I'm guessing Mike and the "self taught palentologist" are starting a museum.
From source 2: " Yep I ran into Jerry out in Glendive Montana, he had attached himself to a local museum. I found that he and they were still sneaking into ranches where they had been banned. That is when I saw his true nature.
