Jeff grew up on the southside of Indianapolis, graduating from Southport High School in 1976. After high school he followed in his father’s footsteps and went into the plumbing field. He scored a perfect score on the plumbing certification test to become a journeyman plumber. He worked several years at Methodist Hospital before starting his own business.
Jeff was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish. The love of his hobbies also led him to become a very good cook. Jeff also enjoyed socializing with his friends and family, never wanting to miss a party.
