  1. Jeff was one of the most influential people in my life. I first met him through my friendship with Amanda. He was such a great dad & patiently put up with all our music, dancing & sleepless sleepovers. Later, he helped me connect with my future employer & we became coworkers. Because of his kindness & generosity, I was given an opportunity to have the job of my dreams. Being the only woman in the sales bullpen at IDS, he always looked out for me & made sure I was included. I’ll miss seeing him at our National meeting this year. I always looked forward to giving him a big hug, hearing updates about the family & thanking him (again) for helping me all those years ago. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Jeff. I’ll forever be grateful for him.

    For the family, I hope it brings you some comfort knowing how much Jeff meant to so many people. He was loved & appreciated. Sending you strength to get through this very difficult time.

  2. I loved Jeff He was a wonderful brother in law and I’ll miss him.

  3. Rest in peace
