Dear Lynn and Laurel, Marcy and I were sad to hear of Jeff's passing. Although we never had the pleasure of meeting him, his story and the people who knew him describe him as a cheerful and loving person, and a good man.

I did not have the good fortune to Jeff, but as someone who has lived their life and struggled since birth with a heart condition, I just want to say thank you. Thank you to his family and friends, for loving and living life with him. And thank you to Jeff, for living a full life and being an inspiration.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I wanted to express how much I love this man!! He was simply one of the most compassionate, giving friends I've ever had. We went to junior high school, and high school together. Jeff and I usually sat together whenever the football team's bus traveled away for a game. I was drawn to his strength, and his peace when I was scared. Jeff knew the depth of my fear, at a level I only understood years later, and by being close to him in silence, I was always comforted. He didn't take my fear away, but Jeff knew my fear, and allowed me to set it aside while he exuded joy and excitement. You see, Jeff didn't play in the stupid game I was so emotional about, Jeff just supported our effort in any capacity he was asked. He was invested in the outcome, and wanted us to win, but more importantly, he was choosing to take the journey with us. Jeff was ALWAYS the one I looked to sit next to when we lost though.. Always. Fortunately, we didn't lose very often, but when we did, it hurt BADLY!! Jeff became someone I COUNTED ON to sit with when I was either in immense fear, or terrible pain.. What does that say about his strength..? Awesome... Years later my life had become a roller coaster of success, and failure, and I wound up struggling in my home town again. A friend stopped by because he used to do volunteer work for the housing partnership (in service again, just like Jeff) which resided in the property we had purchased recently. He realized it was me, and immediately started helping me out. Jeff was there for me at every turn.. His memory will be with me forever

Jeff always shared a welcoming smile for all of his Faith Technologies co-workers. He had a cat-bird seat to share it with many each day.

Jeff was our neighbor as a young boy growing up. He was so pleasant and kind. When we’d see him in the community years later, always a smile to greet us, lots of conversation, and happy... A fine example to be followed. Thank you, Jeff.

On behalf of the entire Procurement team at Faith Technologies we send Jeff's extended family our condolences and sympathy. It should come as no surprise that Jeff was a well-liked and respected member of our team. Always quick witted and able to lighten the mood. Jeff's sense of humor will be missed as will his technical excellence and support of the greater Faith organization. Jeff, travel well.. you'll be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Jeff was always interesting to talk to, I loved that he would always comment with a quote or statement from a song or movie, made me chuckle. He was an intelligent and sweet man, willing to help you out. So glad I got a chance to work with him. On a side note, last night (Tuesday) I got a manicure looking for colors & I thought of Jeff. The colors were right there, his request was to do each finger a different color, blue, yellow, orange, red and green. I just had to smile, I will always remember that conversation. We will miss you Jeff, rest in peace!

Jeff was the best man that I have ever known. He had a heart of gold, always pushed me to go to school and finish my degree. I know him for 5 years the last 2 years I haven't seen him but at this moment all I want to hear is him say " whoa did you hear that, is there a ghost in here" or o hear about his Ireland trip again. I'm deeply hurt and sorrowed but his passing. I wish the best to Lynn and her wife.
