    Jeff always came into a room with a big smile on his face. You couldn’t help but have a smile on yours! Jeff was such a caring soul, and shared everything of himself with others. We always had so much fun with him. Whether it be in our office at Midwest Security & Fire, out to lunch, or at one of his informative seminars. He really knew his stuff! He will be missed by so many people…he truly touched so many!
