Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sorry to hear of Jeff passing. He was an amazing man with am amazing story. I will never forget what he freely gave to me in my program of recovery. Rest in peace my friend.

  2. Rest easy, my friend. Your infectious smile, hugs and delicious food that you always brought to our FMVeg potlucks will be missed.

  3. I met Jeff when I was a freshman at South, he was a junior (pretty sure he skipped a grade).
    I was lucky enough to get to fill in for his regular varsity debate partner for the “Little National’s” tournament in St. Paul. I learned a lot from Jeff on that trip much of which i still carry with me each day.

  4. So very sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing. I am so glad that I was able to spend some time with him in Seattle in 2010. He had come to my dad’s funeral in Seattle. My brother Steve and I were able to get reacquainted with him.
    My thoughts go out to you Jamie. Love, your cousin. Kathryn
