Jeff was my colleague at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago from 1976-1979. Jeff, Diane and their children were also our neighbors in Buffalo Grove in the late 70's. We spent many memorable hours working together, commuting and helping each other with projects at our respective homes. Jeff, Diane and the kids were an important part of my family members' lives, and we are deeply saddened by his passing.
