Jeff enlisted in the United States Army and served from 2012 to 2017.

When not in school or involved in sports, he worked at SUNY Canton during the summer as well as with Char’s Lawn Care business.

Jeff will be remembered for his love of sports, playing softball with his brother and friends on the Morley Mad Dogs Team, playing summer soccer, scuba diving with his father in the St. Lawrence River, fishing in the Grasse River for musky, pike and bass.  He was also an avid Yankees, Cowboys and Syracuse fan.

He loved life.  He was often quiet but he truly loved his family and friends.  He was a special young man who tried his best at everything he did.  He will be sadly missed.
