I have known Jeff for many years from working at McKesson. There isn't a nicer man around. He always stopped to say hello and brighten my day. No matter what the weather was like, Jeff always had his shorts on. He will always be remembered. My deepest condolences to the family. May he live on in your hearts and in your memories. Sincerely, Deborah Schwartz
My heart goes out to you....
Jeff and I worked together at Mckesson for the past several years. He was funny, hard-working and generous with his time and knowledge. I will miss him. Mimi

Julie, Sorry to hear about this. Hang in there. Scott Hatanaka
Even though I never met Jeff, we worked together over the course of several years at McKesson. He was always eager to assist and share his knowledge. I am very sorry for your loss and will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
I am so very sorry Julie. My heart is very sad for you. I really liked Jeff and enjoyed being in his presence. I loved his honesty and also his big and kind heart. I’m grateful for the contacts he gave me for my friend who put together a book honoring Veteran’s. Jeff was very committed to helping all who served and I honor him for that. I am grateful you both came to the ranch last summer and just loved the BBQ he made. He was a good friend and valued coworker. May you find peace in the memories – love and light to you, Kate Lambert
Julie, I saw so shocked and saddened to hear about Jeff. He was one of those special people that I have missed since leaving Colorado. I've been thinking of him, he being a big part of my going away party, our many talks at the bar, when you and Jeff sent the grandkids over to say hi to "Santa". I miss you my friend. Take care Julie, my heart goes out to you. Greg...
Julie, we are so sorry to hear of your loss. May the Lord bless you and keep you in this time of great sorrow. Love, Don & LuAnne
I am so sorry to hear of Jeff's passing. We worked together for many years in the Tech Center and then at McKesson. Although the last several years we've lost touch, I surely loved and respected Jeff as a fierce force in software testing. He was so funny and he talked about his family and his grandkids all the time. We had so many lunches together for current and past co-workers, it was always a good time. We walked so many miles in Louisville...I've always missed those talks. I'm so sorry he's gone so soon. Take care and my sincere sympathies.
Julie, I am deeply saddened by the loss of your husband Jeffrey. I didn't known him but I am sure he was a great person, specially as he was a boy scout. My daughter and I, we are scouts since 2005. You and your family will be on our prayers. Please accept my sincere condolences. Your brazilian friend from EDS, Soraia Stopa.
You are ever so close to our hearts and we are keeping you in our prayers! I can't tell you how sorry we are for your huge loss. Jeff will be remembered for his huge heart and generosity! I only wished that we got to spend more time with him. We love you Julie so much! With our deepest sympathies- Tammy & Brian
Julie - our deepest condolences to you and your family, from all of us at DOI. I'm sorry to be unable to make the services Saturday. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and anything we can do to assist, please let me know.
Julie, we are shocked to hear this sad news. Way too young, and way too soon. Although we all did not get together as often the last few years, you both were always in our thoughts. We were just thinking about our camping trips.Jeff was a genuinely nice guy, one you are glad to call a friend. Jeff will be at the services today. Call us for anything, anytime. Jeff and Connie
Julie, I am so sorry to hear of your sudden loss. Although I did not know Jeff other than to say hello over the years, or talk briefly about the chickens you had, he was very kind to my son Ryan on several occasions. If you ever need anything, I'm close by. My thoughts are with you during this very difficult time. Joan (your neighbor across the alley). Ryan sends his condolences as well.
