The following obituary appears in the June, 1935 issue of American Rifleman magazine:
After a valiant but unsuccessful effort to combat a sinus illness which had baffled medical science, Jerome B. Rosenstiel, University of Illinois honor student and a member of the 1935 graduating class, died on May 3rd at the home of his parents in Freeport,Ill. He was 23 years of age. Aside from his excellent scholastic record young Rosenstiel was widely known for his shooting ability. He won the Mid-Western Rifle Championship at Milan, Ohio, last September and had numerous pistol and shotgun records to his credit. He was manager of the university rifle and pistol team and had qualified on several occasions as an expert marksman, taking many honors both at the university and at R.O.T.C. training camps. The N.R.A., of which young Rosenstiel was an active member, joins his sportsman friends in extending sympathy to his bereaved parents.
