I have known Jeff since 1995 when he was hired at IA. He became part of our family. He was such a wonderful person, had a sense of humor, and just an all around nice guy. He and I would talk for hours on the phone on all subjects. He would come and have lunch or dinner and spend the day talking and laughing. We will miss him terribly. Our prayers and condolences to his family.

Rest In Peace, Jeff, and know that we love you and will never forget you.

Jeff and I were neighbors for many years at Grovehurst. We enjoyed many of the same things like working in the yard, visiting with neighbors and long conversations about what needed to be done to improve our homes. We shopped home stores went to movies, church and frequently had dinner.

Rest Peaceful J.D. and know I loved you like family and will fondly remember my nickname of Tessie.

I graduated with Jeff from SHS in 1979. We were in the band together. I have fond memories of him. He was always smiling, quick-witted and mischievous. He could always be counted on to say or do something that would bring a smile or a laugh. I'm very sorry that he's passed.

We’ll always treasure our memories of good times with Jeff. As a child, he & his family introduced us to the joy of picking out & cutting down a Christmas tree in the mountains. As a young man, he was indeed a fun & generous cousin; we’ll never forget the giant stuffed panda he gave little Emily. We’ll miss you, Jeff!

Jeff has been a good friend and neighbor for 25 years. We shared many good times and laughs together over the years. He worked tirelessly to keep his front yard manicured and beautiful. He would even dog sit occasionally. He was a great neighbor and friendly to all that knew him.
We will miss him very much. RIP
Our sympathy to all his family.

Jeff was a good friend, going all the way back to the Statesville Swim Team days for many practices at Grace Park (late 1960's) during the summer months and then at either the Kivett's or Pero's during the winter month practices. Jeff had a BIG heart towards helping others, and we had lots of fun times thru the High School years. He always loved good music and on numerous occassions we would just ride around town listening to LOUD music in his Chevy Nova!! RIP my good friend!!

Jeff had a genuine affection for people. I remember the look of his eyes when talking to him, he would be completely engaged with you. He always shared a smile.
