I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff several years ago. He was endlessly hilarious and charming in a humble sort of way. He made people laugh without trying—I admired that about him. He had a keen sense of humor, sometimes irreverent...sometimes absurd...sometimes wildly philosophical. We kept in touch sporadically over the years, mostly through random texts. He always went out of his way to remind me that he cherished our friendship. I did the same. My thoughts are with his closest friends and family. I’m sure he’s still sparking laughter—in a much better place right now.

I knew of “Nadz “ from the radio as I listen every morning. He seemed like such a kind and obviously hilarious guy. I know of the demons he struggled with and I pray he has found peace and is reunited with his brother. My sincere condolences to his family, friends and RMG crew. He will be missed but not forgotten.

Nadz was such a bright light in his role on the radio as well as his stand up performances. I saw him open for a comedian once and I always regretted not telling him how great he was when I saw him afterwards.
While I never met him in person, I feel like I knew him since he was so open and hilarious on the radio. He always had a kind word for everyone and was so quick with the wittiest comebacks ever.
I wish healing from this terrible hurt for all of his family and friends. CLY Nadz, we love you and will miss you intensely.

I’m so sorry to Jeff’s family and friends. I know he was loved so deeply by many. I can’t imagine the pain his parents feel right now but I hope that one day soon they can find peace in knowing that while he was here for only a short time, he brought so many people joy and was loved by friends and strangers alike. I’m so sorry Jeff had a difficult time after Andrew passed.
May his memory be a blessing to all who knew him.

First off I want to give my condolences to Judee and Dave. I am so incredibly sorry....I love you both, and I think about my time with Jeff and Drew daily. I am extremely sorry I could not make the funeral, it saddens me greatly and I worry is something I will regret I was not able to be at.

I love Jeff so much. There were times of our life where I’m not sure a year went by where we didn’t see each other every day, and there are times we grew apart and didn’t see each other for sometimes years, but every time we did see each other it was like nothing ever changed. I was so proud of you when you made it on the radio, I always knew out of everybody we grew up with that you were going to be the one that made it. I thought this was just going to be the beginning. The last few years watching you on the RMG really made me feel a lot closer to you again, And probably more than you realized. There hasn’t been his single day I haven’t cried since you left, rest east brother...say hello to drew for me.

This hit me hard. Although I've never met Jeff in person, I felt like I knew him through RMG. I just want his family and closest friends to know how many people he brought joy to. I'm in Buffalo NY and he made me smile and laugh thousands of times. What an amazing human being and how lucky you all are to have had personal relationships with him. My condolences. I miss you Nadz. I'll always be a fan and smile every time I think of you.

NADZ was the greatest phone screener of all time I’ll always remember all of the funny things he did and the times he made fun of Jeffrey larocque live on the air also the time he jumped over a chain.

This news of your passing is something that is incredibly hard for me to accept. You were talented beyond your years here. I feel extremely blessed to have had our paths cross in so many ways. Haha, I love how people had no idea that you were 1 of my asst. basketball coaches at Crestwood HS just a few years before your RMG fame. I always loved working with you on the hookup, and i am so glad you were part of our Safe & Reliable limo team for those few months last year when you just needed a chance somewhere. I will miss most of all our times hanging out at all the concerts & the Cavs floor seats with Papa Nadz, your dad. I cherish all our conversations abt our 2 brothers who passed away too soon & have comfort in knowing you are making them laugh up in heaven. Rest easy my brother until we meet again.. BIG AL
