R.I.P. Jerry Lewis at 91

Lewis raised over $2.5 billion through his telethons....and won the 2009 Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. 

When he died Sunday, the White House issued a brief statement of appreciation, which mentioned

“his incredible charity work” that “touched the lives of millions.” It called him “one of our greatest entertainers and humanitarians.”
