Jeff has friends in almost every city he has traveled to and worked in. He was very friendly, personable, and loyal. He was a huge asset wherever he found himself. He loved to play and watch sports and to be outdoors. He loved his puppies; Reggie, DJ, Ego, Shasta, Rogue, Roxy, Simon and his bird Bandit. He was best friend to all his dogs. Jeff loved to travel, see new things and places. He was the glue for the Fox family. He was always concerned about others and did all he could for those around him. He was so service oriented and took such good care of his parents all their lives. He helped make a lot of lives happier and much easier with his big heart. He had stellar integrity and was the kindest person you ever met and had that wonderful smile.

I only met Jeff a handful of times, but in those few visits with him he made me laugh, smile and think. Our interaction was small and brief, but his impact on my life will be long-lasting and large!
