A long time ago, Cole and my son Rich were on a basketball team together. Jeff was always great to talk with, and in later years, whenever I bumped into him on campus, he was always a class act, and we always had a pleasant, but all too brief conversation. Rest in Peace, Jeff.

I have know Jeff since day one when I started on campus 27 years ago. He was always so nice and helpful. He always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell. He will be missed by all and Purdue halls will not be the same. RIP Jeff. Prayers to your family. May your memories bring a smile to your loved ones faces and a harm spot in their hearts.
Rochelle Hines left a message on October 1, 2019:
I am deeply sadden by the passing of my friend Jeff. My heart goes out to Kitty and her family. I'm sure I speak for everyone who worked at Freehafer Hall, while it was still standing, that Jeff made our day just by coming into the building and waiting for that one joke that would keep us laughing all day. He will be missed.

John Cox left a message on October 1, 2019:
I’ve know you forever. Me in the welding shop. You riding the cars up and down. We both left Purdue for a while but came back at different times but it was like we never missed a beat. We chatted the day before you left us. Each poking fun at the other as to who was out the door to retirement before the other. I said 3 years....you said you would beat me out the door. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Our hearts are broken. Prayers for you and your family, Jeff. Till we meet up again another day may friend. JC
