My heart is so saddened. I am Jeff’s real estate agent here in Florida and have known him for six years. I used to love the conversations we had because we both grew up in South Portland and both graduated from South Portland high school . All of the while, he had been planning his retirement and his dream to move to Florida with Karyn. It’s so hard to believe that his home will be finished next month and his death is so untimely... he was a planning this for so long and it doesn’t seem fair that he will never get to live out his dreams of retirement here in Sarasota. I have been praying for peace for Karyn and the family. Rest In Peace my friend. xoxo

I never have the right words, but I wanted you to know Tim and I are holding you and Jeff in our thoughts and hearts. I am not sure your recall that my husband Tim worked at the Federal Courthouse for a few years. Tim remembers Jeff having a great sense of humor. He had a lot of respect for Jeff and his fellow officers. He so appreciated their service and how respectful they were to people entering the courthouse. Not to mention how tough and capable they were in their abilities to handle anyone who might try to cause trouble within the courthouse. We will be thinking of you and your family. Truly, Kathy and Tim Reilley

My profound sympathies to Jeff's wife Karyn and the rest of his family. Jeff had many fine attributes, among them having been a fair, respected and dedicated supervisor while at the same time being a loyal, steadfast and giving friend. His death is so untimely as he should have had many good years ahead of him to enjoy with his wife, family and friends. ...William Wark

I am saddened to learn of Jeff's passing. He and I had many friendly chats outside the federal courthouse in Portland. Most of these related to Boston sports teams or court activities. We are both SPHS grads. Jeff had a good laugh and brightened up the day. Best wishes to his family. He was a really good man.

When I first met Jeff in 1970, I could quickly tell that he would bring much good into the lives of many others. Even as a fifteen year old, he could be simultaneously friendly, serious, and kind. It came as no surprise to see him serve our community so well for so many years. And in more recent years I always looked forward to his security visits to my chambers so we could trade stories about families and the recent successes of our favored Boston teams. I am sad that his retirement has been cut so short, but happy that I had the privilege of knowing him. My condolences to his family and many friends.
