Jeff was born in Winnipeg on December 25, 1970. He resided at Actionmarguerite. Jeff was a curious, adventurous and fearless child, and as he grew, he developed the skill of attaining difficult goals he set for himself. As a young adult, he acquired a black belt in Taekwondo. He developed his artistic talents at Red River College and created many works of visual art. Subsequently, he went on to the University of Manitoba to develop his analytical skills and graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education. Jeff was unable to pursue his teaching career, as his life was changed after a stroke, but his strong determination allowed him to overcome many great hurdles in his life. Jeff continued to enjoy attending and was supported by his AA group.
A special thank you to all the dedicated staff at Actionmarguerite for their compassionate care and the home they provided for Jeffrey.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Jeffrey's memory may be made to Actionmarguerite Foundation.
A private service with family will be held at a future date.
