He was lovingly-known as Jeff and attended West York High School, Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, Pa., and Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN where he achieved a Masters in Music Education. Many years later, he attended The American College in Bryn Mawr, Pa. and was awarded the designation of Chartered Life Underwriter and Chartered Financial Consultant.

Jeff worked for Prudential as a District Sales Rep., and a Financial Consultant and was awarded salesman of the year multiple times within his career. He requested that his funeral have “business casual” dress required, as he spent too many years wearing a coat and tie. He was an avid Penn State football fan, whether tailgating at PSU games, or rooting for the team on television.
