Jerry Weller News

Gerald C. "Jerry" Weller (born July 7, 1957, Streator, Illinois) is an American politician who was a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Illinois's 11th congressional district.

On September 21, 2007, Weller announced that he will not seek another term, citing the need to spend more time with his family. The announcement came as questions were asked about his Nicaraguan land holdings; his wife's investments, and the contributions of an indicted defense contractor.

Weller was born in Streator, Illinois to LaVern and Marilyn Weller, and raised on his family's hog farm in Dwight, Illinois. Weller is a 1979 graduate of the University of Illinois where he received his degree in agriculture. Weller has been married twice.
