On behalf of everyone at Mid-Maine Technical Center, I share our condolences with all of Jeb's family and friends. Jeb was a kind soul that brought light to his Automotive Technology class, to our hallways, and to our office (only for social visits, of course!).

Jeb was a cool kid to have in the neighborhood. He, "Big" Nick, and I would shoot hoops occasionally, out in the street. When my wife and I got a dog, our dog walk went by his house. I'd look forward to the times when he was outside. Our conversations were brief, but he was always kind and especially loving with our dog. I missed Jeb when he moved out of the neighborhood and I'm deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I say this as the highest form of praise, Jeb was a good neighbor, especially in a world that needed a lot more good neighbors.

With Love, Karl Foss

Jeb, I will always remember you first from Waterville Junior High School, and next from Maine Academy of Natural Sciences. I was one of your ed techs at both schools. At Waterville, we had a love/hate relationship. I could never get you to do your work, especially math, no matter what I tried. I have to admit, I gave up. Imagine my surprise when you showed up at MeANS behind me. It was a fresh start for both of us. You had changed a lot, but what had not changed was your kind, loving soul. You were such a fun person to be around. Always with a smile and a kind word. I don't think I ever heard you speak ill of anyone. Even though I knew you were struggling inside, you always had a smile on your face and you always tried to make others feel better. You were a true friend. You have made me laugh and smile so many times. You have enriched my life for being in it, and for that I thank you. You have left us much too soon, and you have left a huge void. May you have finally found peace. Until we meet again......

My deepest condolences to Jeb's Family. I have no words ... but please know you are in my thoughts.
I will pray for comfort for each of you.

I first met Jeb as 'one of the kids' in our neighborhood. He was waiting for the bus with the 'Gang.'
I was teaching my new Christmas puppy to walk on a leash. Even though it was cold, the ground was icy, Jeb got right down on the ground, BIG Smile, opened his arms, & said, 'Well hey there, little fella.' My puppy gaining confidence, was instantly taken with Jeb. Puppy trotted right up to Jeb, gave lots of kisses & let Jeb pick him up. Jeb in turn smiled, picked him up, & gave him a big hug. They were instant friends. This was all fairly unusual for me as it was not the kind of affection I think of coming from a teenage guy. Jeb was different. Jeb was bold. Jeb gave uninhibited kindness. I thought, this is A REALLY GOOD KID !!
I tried to keep up with Jeb. What can I say, He was a 'kid in the neighborhood' & I'm just 'some lady in the neighborhood.' -That knew I had a brush with a special kid. When I talked to Jeb there was a half answer & a half, Who are you again...? LOL.

Then, When I heard of Jeb's passing, I went cold. This is the most terrible news to receive...for our little neighborhood to receive. It is the most terrible news for the Whole Wide World to receive.
The Entire World has suffered the loss of Jeb, because the whole world Needs more Jebs.
Everywhere, especially now more than ever, the world needs people unafraid to see another, open their arms, reach out with a big smile & encourage & accept the beings around them.

Please know, everyone touched by Jeb are in my thoughts for comfort. If you find you miss Jeb, look around, reach out, Make someone feel special. That is what Jeb would have done.
Truly, my most sincere condolences to Everyone, especially
Jeb's Mom, Family, & Loved Ones. ~Amy Irish

Tracey, I cried at the thought of Jeb passing. I couldn't believe it. Jeb was there for me, when no one else was. He stood up for me on the playground since pre-school. We were close and he'd visit me at work often. He was so kind and thoughtful. And always loved his mother. He talked of you so lovingly. I miss him. He had such an impact on my life. It truly saddens me, that his impact was short. But I will always remember the little boy, who shared his crackers with me. Thank you for raising such a caring young man.

Tracy, your love for Jebadiah was so clear every time you talked about him. You were there for him always and he adored you. He was so blessed to have you as his mom. He was a kind, wonderful young man. We lost him far too soon. Maeghan
