Jeff Cahill

Cahill, Jeff
Jeff Cahill passed away Friday, January 18, 2013, at the age of 44. A natural born artist, he had the gift of authentic expression. Jeff shared his inner world through his acting and his paintings. Jeff's nature was generous. "Keep throwing punches." "Hey, Kid" Jeff grew up in Northbrook, IL, where he was a child actor. His first film was The Blues Brothers as one of the orphan boys. In Los Angeles he had a successful TV career appearing in NYPD Blue, Deadwood, Southland and Prison Break, to name just a few. He was also a visual artist. His work was cool. Ironic. Humorous. Genius. Many crossed his path at The Roxy's "On the Rox" on the Sunset Strip. As the music promoter, Jeff facilitated the dreams of countless musicians. He was an artist who let his fellow artists shine. That was his life. Jeff is survived by his wife, Janeline Hayes-Cahill, his mother, Josephine, and his sister Gina.
A Memorial will be held at 10am Monday January 28, at 7383 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, 90046.
