Jerry Garcia net worth: Jerry Garcia was an American musician who had a net worth of $40 million. Born Jerome John "Jerry" Garcia on August 1, 1942 in San Francisco, California, Garcia died August 9, 1995. Best known for his lead guitar work, singing and songwriting in the band Grateful Dead, formed in the 60s. The son of a Spanish immigrant, Garcia studied piano as a boy then turned to the guitar in his teens. At age 17 he dropped out of high school and spent nine months in the U.S. Army before being dishonorably discharged. He then began playing folk and blues guitar in clubs within The Bay Area (San Francisco, California), while simultaneously working as a salesman and music teacher. The band Grateful Dead was initially called Warlocks, but was changed when the group discovered there was another band of the same name. Given that Grateful Dead's inception was during the LSD and drug movement in the 60s, the band initially played 'psychedelic' rock but moved on to a more diverse rock style in the 70s. By 1974 members of Grateful Dead began to go their own separate ways and Jerry Garcia was no exception. Unfortunately, Garcia's battle with drugs caused him to be arrested and subsequently sent to a treatment center. When he experienced a diabetic coma, Garcia turned his life around and Grateful Dead made a comeback in 1987 with the hit single Touch of Gray from their album In the Dark. Garcia met his first wife, Sara Ruppenthal, in 1963. They married in 1963 and had a daughter, Heather, that same year. His second wife, Carolyn Adams, is the mother of Garcia's second and third daughters, Annabelle and Theresa. He married Deborah Koons on Valentine's Day of 1994.
