I spent many hour and many words,thoughts and a few laughs too. He will always have a favorite spot in my memories. I know he suffered a bit. He faced each day with as much positivity as possible. I''m truly sorry for your loss.

To the Rizzo family - I'm sad to say I lost touch with Jeff some time ago, after high school, and I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. He'll always stand out as one of the bright spots of my school days. . .I still remember trading CD's with him, including the first I ever owned. For the record, "Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense. . ." which I've still got. I also remember that no matter what challenges he was facing that he always did so with a smile. The world has lost someone special.

I am so sorry that Jeff is gone. I was just showing my kids Halloween pictures of Jeff as "Boy George." He always made us laugh. Our thoughts are with you.

To the Rizzo family, I am so sorry for your loss. Jeff was a great friend to me through high school, helping me through many classes. Especially French class, because I knew with Jeff we would laugh our way through it. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

To the Rizzo family, Jeff and I became friends in a T.V. productions class at N.A. in the late 80's. I was not the best student at the time, but Jeff was, and with a lot of patience He got me through that semester. I will always remember Jeff, and his gentle nature and kindness. My most heartfelt condolences. Eric - Class of 1987
