Not sure what to say?

Great leader on our 1975 football team and rose bowl victory. You couldn’t not play and push yourself to the max when Jeff was setting the example of what it takes on the practice field and game days to be a winner. Love to the family ...Jeff will be missed by all of his Bruin family

Jeff was a good friend of my brother Ed and of the entire Hayduk family. He was an inspiration to me on the gridiron, but his true greatness lived inside in his strong character. Rest in peace my friend.

Rest in peace dear friend and teammate....your fire and intensity covering kicks amazed us all!!!
His devotion to the team and teammates was inspirational...Cheers and aloha

I was blessed to be a member of the 1976 Rose Bowl Team pictured in Jeff's obituary. He was a great teammate and friend. My sincere condolences to his wife and kids. What a blessing to have a father of his integrity and love for others. May he be in The Presence of The Lord. If there are any services or memorials planned, I would appreciate knowing about them. Patrick "Alley Cat" Schmidt, UCLA Bruins. I loved the man.

One tough guy with a heart of gold.
