Coach Jeff was a loving husband, father, son, uncle, brother, and friend. So many lives have been impacted and influenced by coach Jeff. He was a foundation builder, that chose implementation by discipline and hard work while leading by example. He has proven this by giving 110% in all facets of life. We are proud to observe his selflessness and the sacrifices he made to positively touch the lives of others. His love for his family, powerful spirit and his strength, will be carried with his wife, children, grandchildren, and extended family daily. We love you Papa. Peace, J~Pac.
