Gerald Blaine

Gerald Blaine had the privilege of serving three U.S. Presidents as a Special agent of the Secret Service on the White House detail.

Career

Gerald Blaine is a former U.S. Secret Service Agent and one of the country’s leading experts in high-level, high profile security. In 1959, Jerry Blaine was hired as a Special agent of the United States Secret Service, and was handpicked to serve on the elite White House Secret Service Detail, the thirty-four man team responsible for protecting President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

When John F. Kennedy was elected in November 1960, Gerald was immediately transferred to the President-Elect detail and, for the next three years, accompanied President Kennedy all over the world—through Europe and Central America.

President Kennedy’s Assassination on November 22, 1963 threw the country and the White House into sudden turmoil and despair. Abruptly, the Kennedy Detail became the Johnson Detail. On July 4, 1964, Jerry Blaine resigned from the Secret Service to join the Private sector.

After resigning from the Secret Service, Gerald started his career in IBM Corporation and became aleading expert in high-level security, lecturing worldwide on the use of computers in Criminal Justice and Criminal Intelligence.

In 1990, Gerald retired from IBM and joined ARCO International Oil and Gas in Dallas, Texas as the Director of International Security, Government Relations and Foreign Affairs.

After retiring from ARCO in 1999, Gerald spent four years with Hill & Associates, an Asian-based consulting company, as a Senior Consultant, and finally retired from the corporate world in 2003.

Personal Life

Currently, Gerald lives in Grand Junction, Colorado with Joyce, his wife of more than fifty years. The couple has two children and four grandchildren.
