I had the greatest honor of working for Jed from June 1990 til June 1995 but maintained a close friendship even after I left Mayfield Agencies. He helped me through my divorce, and my car accident. No one could know Jed better than the ones closest to him. I just learned today of his passing and my heart breaks for his family. He will never be forgotten at least by me and those he loves.

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Jed's passing. He was my mother's and my financial advisor since the early 90's and I knew some members of his family well throughout the years. Jed was truly a man of service, love and generosity to all he knew. He will be missed by all. To all his family and his friends I send my heartfelt condolences and pray that their memories bring them comfort at this time and always. Susan Warren

I had the opportunity to serve with Jed in the Ohio Columbus mission field back in 1978 as his companion. We shared many of the same interests. A love for horses, outdoors, working hard and a great love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. I learn many things from Elder Mayfield to which I am grateful. May Heavenly Father shower your family with His tender mercies and love until we all meet again.

Brother Mayfield was in the bishopric in the Singles Ward when I got home from my mission. He was always so welcoming and made me feel apart of the ward family. He was such an awesome guy, and so much fun to be with. I always looked forward to being with him, and cried all through Sacrament meeting the day he was released. I am so thankful I was blessed to know him! He was such a wonderful man! I will always remember his example and testimony of Jesus Christ.
