I worked with Jeff for at least 25 years and am deeply saddened by his passing at such a young age. My deepest sympathy to you all. He was a great boss.
Beth and Molly. I worked with Jeff at Dexter for many years. A great team player and responsible person. Our prayers go out to you both as you cope with this loss
Dear Beth and Molly, I am so saddened by Jeff’s passing. I cannot begin to imagine what you are going through. Please know that my thoughts and sympathies are with you.
Dear Beth and Molly,
I was so sprry to hear about your loss of ypur wonderful husband and father. Please wxcept my sincerest condolences.
Beth and Molly,
I remember Jeff sitting under the tent at your retirement party just a couple of months ago, smiling and being so at ease with everyone . Every time we met at our office parties he was warm , genial and truly genuine.
Sending you my sincerest condolences on this sad event.
Jeff was a 30 + year colleague at work and a very good friend. Working with Jeff you knew you were dealing with an honest , helpful, caring , smart man. He ALWAYS did what he believed to be the right and fair thing as a leader and not what was easy or politically advantageous. He was the real deal and a man who greatly deserved the joy of his retirement. His early death is tragic . Perhaps a slice of his heaven is how many people’s lives he has made better and those so many who admired and loved him. He is one of my favorite people.
Remembering Jeff with fond memories of fellowship, leadership, and friendship. He touched many lives. I am honored he was in mine. My condolences to his family. He will be greatly missed. Ken and Jill Warga
