Jeff was born in Huntington, West Virginia to Thomas Owen Galloway and Peggy Jane Mayenschein on June 19, 1964. He graduated from Fairland High School in Proctorville, Ohio.

He married Lisa Marie Wasielewski on July 20, 1990 in Honolulu, Hawaii, where their daughter Kristy was born May 21, 1993. He was honorably discharged from the US Navy in February 1998 and moved to Portland, Maine where he worked as a CMP Service Technician with Speedfam-IPEC until 2003.

Jeff traveled around the world during his Naval and civilian deployments. He loved spending time outdoors fishing, gardening, and having get togethers (which usually involved huge bonfires and jello shots). He, also, liked watching college football THE Ohio State Buckeyes and Marshall University Thundering Herd.
