Jeff graduated from Pollock High School and joined the Air Force in 1971.  He proudly served his country as a jet engine mechanic for 23 years.  Each day he made sure that his aircraft was ready to fly to support missions.  Jeff retired after 23 years of meritorious service.  After leaving the Air Force, he again served another 17 years with the United States Postal Service.   

Jeff had the ability to fix machinery and was known as an “Engineering Master Craftsman” or “The Handy Man.”  When not working on machines, he loved to hunt, fish and go on Sunday drives with his sweetheart.
