Jerry Reese (born July 22, 1963) is the current General Manager of the New York Giants. He succeeded Ernie Accorsi as general manager on January 16, 2007, having been with the Giants since 1994. He resides in Jefferson Township, New Jersey.
Reese is a native of Tiptonville, Tennessee, where he played for the Lake County Falcons' 1980 state champion 1-A high school football team. He then played for the University of Tennessee at Martin where he was later an assistant coach before taking a job as a scout for the New York Giants. From 2002 until becoming General Manager, he was the Director of Pro Personnel for the Giants.
Reese is considered a tactical genius after the success of almost all of the draft picks from the 2007 NFL Draft, which included Aaron Ross, Steve Smith, Jay Alford, Kevin Boss, Michael Johnson, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Zak DeOssie. Some of them played important roles in the Giants' Super Bowl XLII victory.
