Jeff loved his kids with all his heart. He was a great father, husband, son and brother. Never missed his son’s football/basketball games or his daughter’s cheer events. He loved sitting on the porch by the fire on fall evenings, but his happy place was sitting with his toes in the sand by the ocean's edge in Panama City Beach watching his kids make memories and build the same love for the beach that he had built with his family. He will be remembered for his kind heart, quick wit, love of music, and love for Georgia Football, GO DAWGS! Jeff was a thoughtful father, husband, son, brother, and friend and will be truly missed by everyone that knew him.
