Jeff married his wife Denise in February of 1991; they were saved by the grace of God in 1997. Together, they planted roots in Byron, California, where they raised their children on the family farm. He was a skilled craftsman and carpenter, who became a Senior Superintendent for Truebeck Construction. Jeff helped manage and create commercial building structures across the Bay Area.
Jeff was an avid road cyclist who enjoyed activities such as: exercising, coaching his children, watching the 49ers play, and tending to the family farm. His ultimate passion was mentoring and spending time with his children, family, and friends. Jeff’s favorite quote was, “living the dream”; he honestly believed because of God and his family, he was truly living his greatest dream.
