He was the best friend I could have asked for.
We bonded over a linguistics course and we became close friends over the next ten years.
We would meet up every year and catch each other up on how life was going.
I really will miss him

The Staples family has my mom and I deepest condolences. Jeffrey, a.k.a Jello, was one of the most benevolent and caring individuals I’ve ever known. I was with him for four years, and immensely enjoyed the special moments and conversations we shared about our lives and the future. He will always be in my heart. I will miss the encouraging and positive conversations we would often have that taught me different things, and opened my eyes to different perspectives about this world. Also, I have vividly fond memories of his passion and love for dining out at restaurants, such as the Mexican restaurant the Big Sombrero, Cilantro’s, and Conroe’s Burger boy, which made him elated. Overall, he leaves a legacy for helping others in need, truly caring for others, and being one of the most academically studious people I’ve ever known. I will forever and always cherish his memory and love him.

It is with Great Sadness and Most Sincere condolences to the family that I write this message.
Jeffrey was a bright shining star of happiness and friendliness at Hot Shot. Every time Jeffery came into the office he made a point of saying hello and spreading good cheer to everyone who works here. Jeffrey's morning recital over the radio was always fun and interesting, it had the effect he wanted.... that was to make everyone smile.
Jeffrey was polite, courteous and professional in all of his actions. We are in shock at his sudden departure from this world, he will be missed.
