Daphne Brown Freeman says:

I'm so sorry to hear this. Jeff was an amazing person. When we were in high school, I had a wreck and Jeff was driving behind me. He stopped to help and stayed with my sister and I until the paramedics and police got there. He would help anyone he ran across and make you laugh as an added bonus. Jeff made this world a better place and will be missed tremendously.

Mark Whitefield says:
