I was saddened to hear of Jeff's untimely passing. Jeff was my housemate circa 1991-92 when we were both Anthropology students at the Univ. of New Mexico. His most prized possessions were his trumpet and his Miles Davis CDs. He had a bright mind and we had many long conversations about music, mythology, and anthropological theory. Whenever we had the chance, we took day trips around the Land of Enchantment. I regret that I fell out of touch with him after I left New Mexico. My condolences to the Jacobs family.
