Jeff was a wonderful soul.....always caring, smiling, giving and a person who always put his family first. As a family member he was that person that carried and promoted the positive vibe about everything. My last conversation with Jeff was his passion with trucking, his love for his children, grandchildren and life. He will be greatly missed in the family. His legacy for me is his profound love for his family.

My heart is consumed with sadness 💔 One of the best friends I ever had! Jeff spread his kindness around for so many of us thru the years. The time he put a wax seal on my toilet lol my bathroom is so small, he still didn't loose his patience. Driving fast cars was always fun with him! Haven't seen alot of him these past years but he alway hugged me like we had never been apart🙏🏼 fly high my friend! I will speak to you often. Love you always 💔💙💙💙💙
