Jeff loved serving others and always put his family, friends and community before himself.

I am a friend and coworker with Jeff, as he was one of the presidents of the Kolb Foundation for Disability Education that my late husband, Tim Kolb founded. We were all such good friends and even went to the movies together here in Franklin one weekend. He was a kind and caring man who loved his Lord dearly. He will be sorely missed.

I can still picture the first time I met Jeff and that was a lot of years ago...but his personality was so radiant, I never did forget him. It was a short visit and we only met a few times after that but I would forever remember Jeff Krull. Then to read his contributions to so many groups and organizations and I know he privately helped thousands, I conclude that Jeff was an amazing person! This world needs more Jeff Krulls. Hugs to his family and we know where Jeff is now and he already has a new body and is still amazing people around him. We'll see you later, Jeff!!

Julie Krull posted a tribute to Jeff on FB and I read it and totally agree with her. There is not a soul on this earth that ever met Jeff that did not love him. He was truly a gift to us all. May he Rest In Peace.
