From Classmate Michael Cirabisi who notified us of Jeff's passing,  June 28, 2014:

Jeff and I attended the same classes. Jeff could get me to laugh, something I needed very badly after losing my mother just before arriving in Seoul. He is the reason I still play guitar to this very day! RIP Jeff and although we never spoke after my leaving Korea, I remember your voice and face!
