No words can express the deep sorrow I feel for your family. Know that you are loved and in my prayers.

I worked with Jeff at Farmers Insurance. Although he was in GR and I am in Austin, TX I enjoyed working with him. He was a wonderful person in every way. Sometimes we fill out an application for a job that we do not know the Most Highest will select us for. He is an Angel and has a lot of work to do for us here on earth. Love you Jeff. My condolences and prayers are with his entire family and friends. With Love, Ginger Bonton

Jeff was one of the most thoughtful people I've known. He will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to his dear friends and family.

Dear Jeff, the first and only time I met you was the first time I met Joe.
You were both in wedding party attire and I thought you were Joe.
I have since had many wonderful times with my new Cousin Joe and you will always be a part of our family.
I just learned about your passing this afternoon as I was minutes away from hugging Evelyn's twin nephews Eric and Victor. We all wish we could hug you tight right now.
Love Matt, Evelyn, Coleton and Chloe

Jeff (and his brother Joe) were my best friends growing up. I am deeply saddened by this news. Unfortunately we lost contact through the years and grew apart. My thoughts are with him and his entire family. May he always remain in our hearts and minds.

I am so heartbroken over this news. Jeff was an amazing person and I feel blessed to have known him though several years ago. Countless prayers will go up to bring peace and comfort and understanding.
