Not sure what to say?

We spend many days house sitting for Jeff and Diane at there home on Lake Tapps many years ago. We enjoyed the time we were able to work with him and Tyler on stage. Jeff was a very special man who will be greatly missed.

Jeff will have a deep and lasting impact on the lives of all who knew him: friends, family, faculty, staff, and students. His contributions to Green River College were meaningful and will last on for decades and will continue to be a part of the ongoing heart, soul, and identity of GRC. He will be deeply missed by me, and by all of us. Sending love to Diane, Tyler, and all of Jeff's friends and family.

Jeff was such a dedicated and kind man, and the work he did and connections he fostered in the humanities are a testament to his strong character. Thanks you, Jeff, you will be missed.

Jeff, your commitment to the humanities and CCHA, your devotion to students, and your modest strength were inspirational. I will miss you.

I did not know him well, but he hired me once and helped me out during the quarter I taught at Green River. Jeff was an exceptionally friendly person. It was a pleasure to have known him, the little I did. Which suggests to me, quite a loss for those who knew him well. In Jewish custom they say, "May his memory be a blessing." That it will, I have no doubt.

Jeff was my cousin whom I cherished n loved dearly. I was blessed that Jeff was a part of my life. My husband Stan n I named our youngest son after Jeff. We have some great memories as children n many more as adults. We didnt live close to each other but we were n always will be close in our hearts. My prayers n thoughts go out to family Diane n Tyler n all his zillions of friends. I will see u again my cuz RIP. So sorry for the loss in ours lifes. Love ya all!

Diane and Tyler, I'm sorry for your loss. Jeff was a very gentle, kind, smart soul and he will be missed by all who met him. I know his cousins, Melodie and Maribeth, and Marsha spoke highly of him and will miss him. One thing I remember and adored about him, is he was very family orientated and always wanted to educate the younger members of the ones that had passed to keep their memory alive. I always enjoyed spending time listening to him talk about the memories he had. Looking forward to...

Jeff saw the best in everyone. He made me feel smarter and kinder and funnier than I ever was. Like everyone who knew Jeff, I am so grateful he was ever a part of my life. And I am so sorry, Diane and Tyler, for your loss.
