Jerome Peter Zeringue (born April 1962)[1] is a Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives for District 52 in Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes in south Louisiana. On January 11, 2016, Zeringue succeeded the term-limited Gordon Dove, Sr., in the state House; Dove was instead elected as the president of Terrebonne Parish.

In the October 24, 2015 primary election, Zeringue, with 5,049 votes (50.03 percent), defeated by six votes another Republican candidate, J J Buquet, who polled 5,043 votes (49.97 percent).[2]

Zeringue resides in Houma and has been a state employee. He studied at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux and Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.[3]

Early in 2016, Zeringue joined a large House majority, 76 to 28, in supporting legislation by Representative Katrina Jackson, a Democrat from West Monroe, that increases beginning April 1, 2016, the state sales tax by one cent over eighteen months. The time frame was subsequently increased to twenty-seven months to extend through June 30, 2018. Joining Zeringue in support of the bill were area legislators, Tanner Magee, another Houma Republican, and Democrat Jerry "Truck" Gisclair of Larose in Lafourche Parish. Republican Beryl Amedee of Gray in Terrebonne Parish and Independent Dee Richard of Thibodaux did not support the tax hike.[4]
