Jeff was born in Edmonton, AB and moved to Kelowna, BC in 1988. He grew up in the Okanagan Mission and attended preschool, elementary and high school with the same kids that became his lifelong friends. Jeff excelled as a student and won many awards for his skills. He graduated with honours from Okanagan Mission Secondary in 2003. Jeff attended the University of BC for one year before deciding to pursue his love of woodworking. He held a Red Seal Journeyman Cabinet and Joinery certification and worked alongside his Dad in the family business, designing, building and installing beautiful, intricate stair and railings for many homes throughout the Okanagan and Edmonton, AB. Eventually, Jeff ventured out on his own, starting a successful stair and railing company of his own.

Jeff was passionate about the outdoors and was a skilled hunter and fisherman. He spent many weekends in the mountains hunting or on the water fishing.

He skied, played recreational hockey and baseball, and loved the Edmonton Oilers and San Francisco 49ers.

Jeff loved his entire family and was especially proud of his beautiful children, Jack and Mackenzie. He was a gift to our family, and his time on earth will be cherished by all those that loved him. His memory lives on in our hearts.
