Sorry I am just hearing about Jeff's passing. I had known Jeff since Dogwood Grade school days, playing baseball together since we were 10 years old and on up through high school. Jeff always had a great sense of humor even as a kid. My condolence to his family and friends. RIP Jeff.

My heart-felt sorrow goes out to you Tracy, Jefferson and Mckenzie! A very special person I felt like just being with him, he did that to everyone! The laughter he caused whenever anyone was near was Jeff being Jeff! So many wonderful memories, so many great times as a large group of friends celebrates the life of a Great Man! How many pickles can you stick on the ceiling now! R.I.P. my Very Dear Friend! Love you always. Yar

Tracy, We were shocked and stunned to hear about Jeff. We remember the good memories of both of you back at Luther Hospital years ago. We have thought about the two of you often throughout the years with fondness and laughter. We are sending prayers to you and your children.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Jeff welcomed me when I joined Ministry Health Care & we collaborated on many projects. His love of life- sports- funny stories- was epic. I am stunned & saddened by our loss . A true leader & a terrific human being. The term " Role Model " comes to mind. Easily.

I met Jeff when he first joined Affinity. I worked in the coding dept. and he came in and was funny, kind and really interested in what we did. We have lost one of the best.

Throughout the course of our lives- every once in a while- we meet a hero- someone who touches everyone he meets- always holds to a high standard- lives the values- and through his kindness and generosity leads us to a better self. Jeff was one of my heroes- he was one of those special people. He loved his family passionately- Tracy,Jefferson and McKenzie- you brought so much joy to him- he talked about you with such pride and happiness- The three of you made his life complete. I send you my thanks for sharing him with us- and know that you are in my heart. The picture I am attaching kind of tells the story of how Jeff brought fun and joy to so many- This is a Network Health Event- he in his dress clothes decided to help out with the dunk tank- joining Tim T who is in his wetsuit,

I was sent Jeff's death notice by a friend here at Mayo Clinic Health System - Eau Claire, WI (formerly Luther Midelfort) and I am in total shock. I was one of the people fortunate enough to work for Jeff during his time here. I have only the very best memories of him. My sympathies to his family and friends. What a character he was and such a terrible loss for all whose lives he touched.

An inspiring, caring coach. A very nice man. Always smiling. RIP Mr. Badger. So sad and sorry. God Bless all of you! He will be watching from above! I truly believe that!

Deb Langacker left a message on August 9, 2014:

Jeff Badger was more than a boss or mentor. He made everyone he worked with at Affinity and Ministry feel special and valued. He had only one department policy: Do the Right Thing. Thank you, Jeff, for your guidance and humor, and for setting the bar high for the rest of us. Love and peace to you Tracy, Jefferson, and McKenzie, and Starr.
