Jeff attended Manchester High School and pursued business courses at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College. Throughout his career, he was the owner and operator of Save Our Seniors, S.O.S. Services. A business he started in 1999 to help seniors stay in their homes by doing odd jobs and “honey-do” lists for a minimal charge. It has since grown into a contract cleaning and demolition business. Prior to that, he worked as a warehouse employee and manager at Virginia Impression Products.
Beyond his professional life, Jeff’s hobbies were diverse and reflected his adventurous spirit. He was a dedicated husband and father, a committed Boy Scout Leader for 25 years, a dedicated gym enthusiast, and a passionate relic hunter and collector. Jeff’s love for history, fishing, hunting, serving his community, and action movies brought him great joy. He mostly loved spending time with his family. He was also known for his entrepreneurial spirit as a business owner.
