His family moved to Moapa, NV, where he attended MVHS for three years. They relocated to Cedar City, UT, where he graduated from Cedar City High School with the class of 1988. He worked as an iron worker often pointing out to family the sites he worked on throughout the Las Vegas valley. Jeff became a father after the birth of his firstborn in 1995. He spent time coaching and attending sports events for his children, niece, and nephew. He loved being a dad and uncle.
