Jeffrey had a warm, loving heart, and an insightful sense of humor. He loved animals. He enjoyed observing the deer, wild turkeys, squirrels, and birds that came through his yard. He almost always had a cat. He liked nature and going on long walks across the fields and woods. He was not concerned being out in the rain without an umbrella.
While growing up he enjoyed having his own garden and fort in his backyard. He loved cooking, rock music and movies with carefully picked component stereo and the biggest screen. He liked technology and found happiness in giving his family and friends over-the-top presents. He enjoyed the community spirit, fireworks, and music at First Night Carlisle.
