Jerry Trimble was born in Newport, Kentucky. As a child dealing with depression and anxiety, he was insecure, fearful, and bullied regularly. At age 14, he was inspired by Bruce Lee and began studying the Korean art of Taekwon-Do. Soon after, bullying became a thing of the past. In six months, he began teaching the art. At 15, Jerry earned the rank of a first-degree black belt and became the number one point fighter in the Midwest U.S. At 18, he started Kickboxing and won the "Kentucky State Championship."

At 19 years old, Jerry moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to pursue the World Championship. Fighting under the name "Golden Boy," he won a string of additional titles that included the "Georgia," "Southeast," and "U.S." titles, and at 24 years old, on April 26, 1986, he became the PKA and PKC Kickboxing Champion of the World.


The international kickboxing media rated Jerry Trimble as one of the flashiest fighters and fastest kickers in the sport (his 'hook-kick' was clocked at 118 MPH). He wrote his own column, Martial Arts a Way of Life, for Inside Karate Magazine.


Jerry currently holds the rank of sixth-degree black belt.

At 28, Jerry retired from the ring and moved to Los Angeles, California, to embark on a career in the entertainment business as an actor.  Within a few months, Jerry signed with a talent manager, and his first two auditions resulted in leading roles in the same week.

Jerry has been in over sixty feature films and TV shows that include "Heat", (playing alongside Al Pacino) "Charlie's Angels" Green Hornet, Kung Fu TV series, The Flash, iZombie, Supernatural, Chesapeake Shores, and others.

Jerry continues to fuel his ambitious drive into many different areas of the film industry, including acting, writing, and producing. Still, Jerry's main ambition is to focus on the 'character actor' segment of acting. He enjoys a solid expanse of 'character' parts to exhibit his varied acting talent in various roles.

Jerry is also a Youth Motivational Speaker and  Mentor who empowers teens to stand up to their fears, get out of their comfort zone, discover their gifts, pursue their dreams, and become Champions in life. He uses his real-life experiences as proof that if an insecure, fearful, depressed, and bullied teen like he was can make his dreams come true, anyone can. 

Jerry continues to work as an Actor in the film industry and as a Youth Motivational Speaker.
