I want to covey my sympathies to Judy, Rick and Randy. To know Jeff, was to know a true mensch. Soft spoken and authentic, he left his legacy everywhere.
May his memory be a blessing.

I have good memories of being Jeff's secretary for so many years. He was a great boss as well as nice man. Deepest
sympathy goes out from Ray and me to Judy, Rick, Randy (Kristen), Maddy and other family members.
