Jeff always wanted to do what was right and many folks who worked with him probably did not realize his hidden talents. Jeff could belch the alphabet. I remember from childhood visiting with Jeff and Mimi (Jeff's mama, my grandmother) and watching from the living room as Jeff would quietly arise from his room (which we were never allowed to enter), and stumble to the bathroom. Then just like clockwork, we would hear an enormous belch coming from the depths of his being. We would get in trouble with Mimi for giggling at his belches, but he would never get in trouble for burping. Therefore, we (his niece and nephews) knew he had special, god-like powers. When Mimi would leave the room, we would beg him to belch the alphabet - AND HE COULD! It was the most amazing ability to our seven year old selves.
Uncle Jeff gave me my first Michael Jackson cassette tape. He made me a copy of his "Bad" album by Michael Jackson. I thought he was so cool because he could buy his own music. I could only listen to music on the radio.
Uncle Jeff and I shared the bond of both being Vanderbilt alumni. When I entered Vanderbilt University as a freshman in 1999, Uncle Jeff helped me secure a job in the clothing department at the bookstore. This was back when the Vanderbilt bookstore was in the Sarratt Student Center. It was a joy to come to work and see my Uncle Jeff. Jeff loved Vanderbilt athletics and I was always amazed at how Jeff was able to keep the statistics and scores in his head. When I graduated in 2003, I was sad that my new life routine would not include frequent visits to see Uncle Jeff.
When I moved overseas to teach in 2012, Uncle Jeff graciously took my cat, Sebastian, and gave him a new home. Sebastian was a great companion for Jeff, and Jeff was a great carer for Sebastian. Jeff's thoughtful, kindness prevailed over everything.
Uncle Jeff, you were the most kind, respectful, responsible, and thoughtful uncle. I miss you already.

I just heard about Jeff today when I went to Barnes and Noble after the ball game and was totally shocked and saddened by this news. He was such a joy to talk to and work with, sometimes I had to refer to him about certain items that I was helping to get ready to be mailed and was always so patient in showing me how to get things done. He was one of a kind and I for one will miss his presence when ever I visit Barnes and Noble. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

I am one of many who miss Jeff’s presence at the Vanderbilt bookstore. Jeff worked mostly behind the scenes in our on line department where his deliberate and calm demeanor served as an anchor for us in daily operation and in busy crunch times.
I enjoyed our daily talks and his observations about local and national news, sports, history, and tv. He was contemplative, respectful, and would always have interesting facts to share.
Jeff was a reader & would often reflect on his current read which varied between fiction and nonfiction.
He loved Vanderbilt sports and would keep me abreast of the latest highlight or point of interest in the season. He was not ashamed to express his Commodore pride.
Now, it is difficult to walk by his work area without feeling deep sadness that he has abruptly left us.
We will remember him during busy RUSH days, game days, & will miss him even on quiet days in the bookstore.
He was one of us, & he will not be forgotten.
My condolences to Jeff’s family.

I worked at the Vanderbilt Bookstore for over 45 years and recently retired a couple of years ago. During that time, I had the privilege of knowing Jeff. It is with such shock and sadness that I hear he is gone from this world. Jeff was as big a Vanderbilt fan as I am, and we shared many stories and ups and downs of our Vandy teams. We always said that being a true Vandy fan builds character. His allegiance never wavered. Jeff occasionally attended games with me as I always had an extra ticket to give a Vandy fan. Jeff also loved cats (as do I) and I know he was very hurt when he lost his sweet kitty. Jeff had different duties at different times during his tenure at the Bookstore, but he was always very thorough and was a very valuable Bookstore employee. Over the years he worked with many persons and developed many friendships. I imagine he would be truly surprised at how many people cared for him. I will never forget Jeff as a friend, coworker and fellow Commodore fan. I am so sorry for your loss as well as Vanderbilt’s loss. Jeff was a fine, sweet man and he will be sorely missed.
