Michelle, Bertha told me about Jeff on Monday, so unbelievable. I am so very sad and sorry. I loved Jeff and his crazy sense of humor and how much he loved you and the girls. So many great memories with you both at the lake and get togethers.
I know my Corey greeted him home. I know it totally doesn't feel like it now, but they are the lucky ones with the Lord in all His amazing Glory, it's us that are left behind with the pain and sadness. I'm always here if you need to talk-All my love and prayers to you and your girls and family at this time of such loss.

Michelle and Jeff's family...
Jeff was one of my very first friends when I moved here from down south at the age of 8, we went to Grover Heights together, Judkins and AG...there was a group of us that were very close back then...My husband actually told me about Jeff's sudden death, he had heard it on a job site and remembered meeting Jeff at AJ Spurs a couple of years ago at Christmas time, he was with Mike Lees and Tony Toste, it was the first time I had seen him in years and athough I never met you Michelle or your precious girls, he bragged about you and the love he had for his girls, it was so great to see him...he was always such a great person...he will be missed by many many people! I am so sorry for your loss!

Dear Michelle, Madison and Maison,

I am so very sorry and sad to hear the news about Jeff. I would have been at the service if I had known before today. I loved Jeff as my student, my TA, as an AJHS parent and as a neighbor. If I can do anything for Maison here at school or anything for all of you as your neighbor please let me know.

Love, Jill Pentoney

Michelle - so terribly sorry and saddened to hear of Jeff's passing. What a shock for all of you. I'm keeping you in my heart and prayers and my thoughts are with you and the girls. Jeff was such a character and lover of life! He had such a great sense of humor, a little of the blarney in him - I always remember those great Tahoe ski trips with the gang from L & M and all the fun on and off the slopes. I know you will all miss him, but remember he lives in your hearts forever!

We were so sorry to hear about Jeff's passing. We have many good memories to look back on in this time of sadness. Time with family at the lake, Christmas eves at the Harts, and some great motor cycle riding. Jeff's passing even though how sad we are to lose him so soon, speaks to us at this time just how precious life is. Our prayers and thoughts go out to your family. You will be missed.

I was so taken aback about the news of an old time friend. A friend I only knew as a kid,when we were kids.
You and I go way back because of our older brothers(Kinney and John). I see you grew into a fine young man with a loving family and God in your heart! I'm proud of you.
Rest in Peace,my kid friend.

Michelle and family,

We can't imagine losing a spouse and father to your children. Nacho was so saddened when we heard the news because he and Jeff had formed a bond as Christian brothers in such a short time. Nacho shared with his Bible group and with me how devoted you two were in serving the Lord. He talked about your true devotion in the Greeter Ministry. He also recalls the love and tenderness you and Jeff displayed for each other and for the Lord. He will be greatly missed.

We are still so shocked at the loss of our friend. Jeff was an amazing guy, he always brought a smile to our face. He always wanted to know what was going on and how we were all doing. He is Georgia's best friend Maison's dad and has been like a part of our family ever since they became friends in 1st grade. We continue to pray for his family that God will get them through these hard times. We take comfort in knowing that he was committed to God and had Him by his side. Jeff we will all miss you dearly. RIP.

I was happy to know Jeff since childhood and also happy that I knew him as an adult. He cared very deeply for Michelle and his girls. He always had such wonderful things to say about his loving wife. "My wife is so cool!" he would say with that smile on his face. It pleases me that he knew Jesus and for what ever reason, the Lord called him. With tears in my eyes, I am sorry for your loss. I will miss him.

We are so sorry at the sudden loss of our son, Jeff, and our hearts are heavy. We know he is safe in the arms of his Heavenly Father, and pray that Michelle and the girls will be comforted by that knowledge, and the love and support of their family and friends. We all enjoyed his great sense of humor and have enjoyed reminiscing about the times he made us all laugh. Ken, Cheri, Jeff's brother, Kevin, and step-sisters Kristi Crum (Robby) and Lisa Crum (Larry) as well as nieces and nephews, mourn his loss.
