Jeff enjoyed sports as a participant and as a spectator. Although football was his sport of choice, fishing was his passion. He looked forward to his annual Lake Erie Walleye fishing trip and regular boating outings with his father and brother. Jeff also prided himself as being a “culinary” expert and began hosting the family Thanksgiving dinner in 2016.

Jeffrey began living with his father and mother (Vonnie) at the age of 8 years through his second year at Grambling State University. It was during this time that Jeffrey was baptized at Power of Faith Christian Center by Pastor Alonzo James. His faith, belief in family, and unconditional love for his children and parents, were the forces which kept him fighting during the final stages of his illness.
