A late strike pulled the Trotters' deficit back to just one goal but Neil Adams' men held on for a priceless three points to aid their promotion push.
Goalscorer Jerome was understandably pleased after netting a brace, tweeting after the game:
Jerome was substituted while he was on a hat-trick but there were fears he could even come off at half-time through injury.
Nathan Redmond, meanwhile, won the man of the match award but said on social media that he was happier that his side were back to winning ways.
Happy to have gotten Man Of The Match tonight but more importantly back to winning ways with a 2-1 win… http://t.co/xNworiETTm— Redderz (@NathanRedmond22) October 31, 2014
Elsewhere, Lewis Grabban, who did not take part in the win, praised his team-mates and goal hero Jerome in particular.
The victory briefly moves the Canaries into third in the Championship, level on points with league-leaders Derby County and Watford.
