Jeff and I dated from about the end of Freshman year in H.S. until my Freshman year at Western IL. He loved football, his family, working where his Dad worked at Goodyear, his MANY friends (Wayne, Tom, Rick, his St. Pet's friends, his B. Boy buddies, etc). I remember he was so proud of himself for saving cash for his first car. Later, he taught me to drive stick in his VERY COOL: Red Road Runner.   In H.S. I went to all of his games & he loyally wore (at least once) the striped jeans i made for him in Miss P's sewing class....We went to movies, concerts, dances, the drive-in, the Arboretum, parties, skating, skiing, & talked thousands of hours on the phone. He wrote the BEST, longest, thought-provoking "notes'  during his more boring classes. He inspired & challenged me while we were formulating our Ideals and I loved sparing with his romantic & philosophical thoughts & reflective ideas....I saved those 'notes' for years until the penciled words faded. Then, we came to a fork & chose separate ways. I'm thankful to have grown up with such a sweet, kind, fun, generous & loving guy.  You were loved by many and are missed.  I know you know I love ya Jeff. RIP.
