Jeffrey grew up and went to school in Westchester County, New York, mainly Katonah and Mt. Kisco. He graduated Pace University in Pleasantville, NY in 1973 and continued his education studying law from 1993-1995. Jeffrey discovered his love of writing while discovering his love of theater.

I fondly remember Jeff from working together at Xerox/Field/Weekly Reader in the 80´s. He was kind and funny.

Jeffrey´s Family, I´m so sorry to learn of Jeffrey´s passing. I worked with Jeffrey for several years and I used to love our talks. He was so passionate about the theater, especially "les miserables". He told me his mom introduced him to the theater when he was a young boy and I could tell he adored her. I´m sure Jeffrey will be missed by his family and friends. I know he had struggled with his illness for too many years and I know he is pain free and at peace now. My deepest sympathy to his family.
