    I met Jeff twice in my life, but it only took once to leave a lasting impression. His passion for charity was so inspiring. And he had a way of making everyone feel appreciated. I'm so sorry for your loss. Even from Omaha, this is a huge loss for the Rockford community. Love and thoughts.

  5. Ellen Musiak

    Barb and Steff, I am so very sorry. Jeff was funny and big hearted. He always reached out to those who were hurting. He was very kind and empathetic. When I lost my nephew, he made a point to message me and see how we were doing. That was the kind of person he was. I pray that your memories and love for him will help you through the pain of loss.
