Jeff has left an indelible impression on the lives of many individuals. He shared unselfishly with his students, colleagues, family and friends his wisdom, spiritual depth, passion for education, and concern for liberation of marginalized peoples and the advancement of humanity. He was a soldier whose every waking heartbeat seemed to be used productively toward enhancing the lives of others. He was an endeared colleague and friend of mine and will be sorely missed. He was so energetic and, as others in this guestbook have characterized him, "spirited." In many ways, his attitude about life and his penchant for making a profound difference made him seem richer than most. Now, he gets to live in one of the many mansions that God has prepared for his believers/children. Even in heaven Jeff gets to live an affluent life! Much love brother.You spent your life embracing others; now it's your turn to enjoy the largest embrace God has to offer his children. Rest in peace and be blessed!
