There are many words that have been used to describe Jeff, but quiet determination, and his actions always overshadowed the loudest words you could speak about him. Just the manner of his death- a solo run on the Stikine says it all. First on the water, last one off the water. Teacher, mentor, creeker, play boater, expedition boater, friend, team member, and even design helper.
I am hoping to collect a list of thoughts from friends and relatives on Jeff and his life below in the comments section- Please help us immortalize his actions, words, and your feelings towards this incredible man, who lost his life, while risking it, in a very real, very important environment for him.
