Jeffrey was an energetic, curious, and joyful person who enjoyed living life to the fullest. He graduated from Ridge Community High School in Davenport, Florida, and loved his work as a surveyor for Pennoni Engineering in Winter Haven, Florida. A people person, he enjoyed his co-workers, friends, children, and strangers alike. In fact, he never met a stranger as he could have a conversation about any topic with anyone anytime. Always curious, he loved figuring out how anything worked and had no fear of taking on any task and getting it done. Jeffrey had many interests; he loved the outdoors, all animals, various types of music, and time spent with family and friends. He especially loved being on the farm in Kentucky and being able to explore and research the land. He will always be affectionally known as “the Chief” and remembered with love.
Jeffrey was an active athlete in golf, football, baseball and basketball. Donations to Ridge Community High School Bolts Boosters can be made in his name at Cash app: $ijinw.
