I had the honor to meet and get to know Jeff through our time together at Vestas. His personality and easy going demeanor made his training classes and any time chatting together very enjoyable.

My condolences to the family and friends of Jeff. He is a great loss to this world. I am very thankful to have shared some of my time here in his presence.

Rest peacefully Jeff.

I will miss you Jeff. You have been a great brother-in-law and uncle to my kids. Thank you for bringing such joy to my sweet sister all these years and for giving our family beautiful Sarah.

I will never forget the way you selflessly jumped in and helped my dad and Sharon this past year. It speaks to your character and your big ❤️. I know how much you helped them both when they needed it-from helping them with their book, being dad’s partner in Trivial Pursuit , helping them fix their trailer, being there when dad wandered -even the time he showed up with a note for you pinned on him 🤣

May you Rest In Peace with Danny now.

You fought so hard to stay with us these last 6 weeks-I will always cherish those “night shifts” memories where I witnessed the beautiful love between you and my sister -it will always be etched in my ❤️. Such a beautiful love story.

Our family will never be the same without you.
Love you always

Jeff has been a great brother in law to me since 1994. I remember the time the water pump on our Car went out on a Saturday afternoon in Greeley back in the mid 90s All the auto shops were closed until Monday. Jeff said we can do it! He spent all day with me tearing into that intricate repair job. Thanks to his knowledge and generosity we we able to drive home and save hundreds of $. At an Easter gathering he wasn’t too busy to help me go buy an International Scout I wanted up in Boulder. We may have missed an egg hunt but it really meant a lot to me. Just this past August we spent quality time at a friends wedding. We came from very different places and families but We shared our love of football, music, history and Our love of 2 sisters Heather and Maureen that luckily connected us. You will be missed brother. Love, Mitch

I like the philosophy that death gives life meaning. I know Jeff found much meaning through his life both in good times and rough times and was still in search of meaning up till the end. We had some crazy times together in Greeley through the late 70’s that I have kept alive through the decades. I’m glad we kept in touch over the years but I regret not seeing more of you. The world will be a lonelier place without you. Until Valhalla my friend.

I first worked with Heather at Kodak for 5 years and then moved to a different department within Kodak where I had the opportunity to meet her husband Jeff and work alongside him in 16mm Motion Picture Film. Jeff was a trainer for 'new' people to the department, but to say he was JUST a trainer is short for so many words. He was extremely patient, kind, had a great sense of humor and was so incredibly smart, at times I found it intimidating. BUT, he never made you feel anything less than worthy. He would lift you up with encouragement and tell you, "Good job, man"! I remember a story he told me about when him and Sarah were at the airport going on a trip and they were skipping through the airport holding hands and laughing (until security stopped them). He was so proud! He loved his family and his kids and it showed! Jeff, thank you for the memories, the laughs and the shoulder to lean on when I needed it. You will be missed....

I worked with Jeff at both Kodak and Vestas. Jeff was our trainer at Kodak. He was so great at that job because he was such a good communicator with all folks he trained on so many different jobs. I always looked forward to talking to Jeff because we shared a passion for rock music. Every time I hear The Rolling Stones from now on I will think of you Jeff. I enjoyed the laughs and good times together at both Kodak and Vestas. Miss you already.

This is a very tough moment for me. Jeff has been my friend since I moved to Colorado in '96. We shared some common bonds and he has easily become my best friend. We shared a love for history and exchanged and debated about many issues, past and present. We went to various historical sites to learn more about our interests. Most of all it's going to be impossible to find another hopeless romantic to suffer through an entire Buffalo Bills schedule....year after year. Watching football will never be the same. The sadness I feel is mostly for me because this leaves a huge hole in my life that will be impossible to fill. Rest in peace my Brother. Your problems are over. You will be sorely missed.

I've known Jeff for a lot of years and with that said it was very clear that he was a very intelligent man and that I'm going to miss him dearly he is the kind of friend that would do anything for you all you had to do was ask. We lost touch for a little bit. But we reconnected and picked up where we left off. I will always cherish our friendship .I love you Jeff, rest in peace my friend
