Jeff was born on April 30, 1964 in Dubuque, Iowa. He graduated from Wahlert High School and attended the University of Iowa. He worked at Ramsey auto services for over 30 years.

He loved his children and devoted his life to them, putting their needs before his own. They always made him proud and the love he carried in his heart was so big! He had a saying that he shared with them often: “Try your BEST, that’s all you can do!

He enjoyed being a Hawkeye, Cardinal, and Green Bay Packer fan. Jeff had a great sense of humor, bringing a smile and laughter to everyone he encountered. His sense of humor will be missed.
