They moved to Watertown, South Dakota and had two children, Kim and Corey. Jeff later married Julie Gorman in 1999 and together resided in Sauk Rapids.

That was a lovely service! You have such wonderful memories of Jeff to help you through your grief. The service helped me through some of mine, as well. There were so many great reminders of our loving God and that He is a God of Life! Even death can't keep us from His love. I pray for peace and healing as you go forward to live your life that is inspired by Jeff and pleasing to God.
