Jeffrey Thomas Hodgson

May 1, 1978November 7, 2020

Jeffrey Thomas “Jeff” Hodgson, born May 1, 1978, in Warren, Ohio, passed away November 7, 2020, in Syracuse, Indiana. Jeff lived an intentional life full of enthusiasm, humor, optimism, love, and faith, all while being a life-long Browns fan (which explains his sense of humor, but certainly not his optimism). In 1985, when Jeff was 7 years old, his family moved from Cortland, Ohio, to Syracuse. He grew up enjoying snow skiing, soccer, water sports, writing songs, and playing guitar. It was during these early years that he met the love of his life, Amy Ray, of North Webster, while in the 7th grade. After graduating from Wawasee High School in 1996, Jeff pursued a degree in finance at Western Michigan University-Haworth College of Business, graduating in 2000, and was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. Jeff and Amy were married on May 12, 2001, and began the next chapter of their lives together. Jeff had a penchant for numbers, a passion for business, and became a tireless serial entrepreneur, launching a number of successful ventures over the course of his career, including his most recent as co-founder and partner of Postlane Capital Partners, and president and CEO of Gladieux Energy. In spite of how busy he was professionally, Jeff was a committed servant in the community, applying his acumen and resources to causes that helped local businesses, and actively supported youth league sports. Jeff loved traveling and enjoyed spending time with his family in London, Malibu, and skiing in Sun Valley. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Carl and Mabel McEwen, and fraternal grandparents, Bill and Mary Ferguson. He is survived by his beloved wife, Amy, his children, Mia and William “Liam”, his parents, Thomas and Janice Hodgson, and his sister Julie (Cy) Nahvi, nephew Kaleb and niece Kate. A private service is planned to celebrate Jeff’s life. Donations can be made to Lakeland Youth Center for the development of an honorary soccer field in memory of Jeff Hodgson: Lakeland Youth Center, 101 W. Chicago St., Syracuse, IN 46567.

I remember randomly seeing Jeff three times after high school and he was always so happy and friendly. He was a good natured person.
He went too soon. May GOD be with his family.

When Jeff brought some customers to Tippicanoe for Golf I recognized him but thought to be the bag boy and asked him to get my clubs. That baby face. He did it and later after golf and his clients left we had a good laugh.

Amy I am so sorry for your loss, you and your family will be in my prayers.

My prayers go to Hodgson and Ray families. Some of the sweetest people I've ever known. I always enjoyed conversations with Jeff and Amy in the Maxwelton clubhouse. Amy may Jesus wrap his arms around you and your babies!
