Jeff was born with Prader-Willi Syndrome and which he lived with his entire life. Despite having this syndrome, he lived life to the fullest. He was able to work most of his adult life at Northwoods Inc. in Portage, where he had many great friends, especially his boss Mary Carignan. The two of them had a bond that was very special to see. He truly loved all animals. Throughout his life he had many pets; llamas, rabbits, dogs, cats, chickens, peacocks, turkeys, and many others. 

He was an avid Packers and Brewers fan. His favorite was the Packers. He could tell you any of the roster changes for the Packers, he always knew who was coming to the team or leaving. His favorite players were Chris Jacke, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers. Wheneven Jeff was told he needed a haircut, he would tell them no because his hair looked like Chris Jackes. He enjoyed watching his favorite NASCAR driver, Dale Ernhardt Jr. Jeff was a sweet and gentle soul that loved everyone and loved helping wherever and whoever he could.

Survivors include his mother Bonnie; aunts and uncles, Nick and Cindy Kuenzli, Roger Jameson and Sandra Morauske; foster mother Linda Martin; cousins, Tonya, Tammy, Andrew, Adrian, Sidney, Ted, Junior, Leslie, and all of their spouses.
