Jerry Lewis’ Daughter on Being Left out of His Will

10149065-suzan-lewis-and-jerry-lewisJerry Lewis’s will does not leave anything to or even mention anyone named Suzan. Well, so what? There are many names not mentioned in Lewis’s will. Suzan Minoret Lewis, the unmentioned Suzan, claims to be an unrecognized heir to Lewis’s estate. She resembles her alleged father and DNA tests revealed over an 80% match with Lewis’s eldest son. Suzan Lewis noted: “There’s a time limit to challenge my father’s will. I need a lawyer. Some say they believe I have a claim.” Two New York attorneys approached about the case refused to take it.
