Jeff went on to study at the University of Texas at Austin where he was an accomplished student who graduated with honors in December of 2008 with a Bachelors Degree in Philosophy. After graduation, Jeff put his graduate study plans on hold while he cared for his ailing maternal grandmother, Jackie Pearce, as he simultaneously worked as a private tutor.

Jeff was loved very much by his parents, his brother, his paternal grandparents, Wayne and Anniece Wood, his maternal grandparents, Don and Eulla Washburn as well as a host of cousins, aunts and uncles. An impressive, serious and loving Christian young man, Jeff had friends from all walks of life. "And if he must die, Take him and cut him out in little stars, And he will make the face of heaven so fine, That all the world will be in love with night, And pay no worship to the garish sun."
