Pulis, who has signed a two-and-a-half year deal at Selhurst Park, saw his new charges boost their survival hopes with a battling 1-0 win over Hull City to move within three points of safety.
Jerome, who is on loan at Palace from Stoke, could face an uneasy reunion with Pulis after being highly critical of the Welshman shortly after his departure from Stoke, accusing him of ignoring him during their time together at the Britannia Stadium.
"What Tony will bring is experience and stability. He took Stoke up from the Championship and solidified them as a mid-table Premier League team, so his record speaks for itself," said Jerome.
"People say it's a big ask to keep us up, but we're only three points off safety with 25 games to go. What sort of big ask is that?"
It has been suggested that Jerome could leave Palace in the wake of Pulis' arrival, but the former Birmingham man insists he remains committed to staying at Selhurst Park for the remainder of his season-long loan.
"Tony will look at what he's got and make a decision on the team he wants to play," added Jerome.
"As a professional, you've just got to get on with it and train hard and, when you're selected, you've got to do your job.
"Unless Stoke call me back, my future is at Crystal Palace and I'm committed to being part of this."
