His daughter wrote:
Jeff was a man whose name will go down in history, who had lived his life to the fullest potential. He left a vast mark on the world, as well as everyone around him. He was a man who had accomplished his dreams unimaginable by others. He truly and honestly was an inspiration to all and earned that title from his perspiration through hard determination. Jeff's life itself was an award-winning novel engraved with a Caldecott medal.
He loved his family to the ends of the earth and far beyond. He envisioned life for his two daughters to be the best it can be, and throughout his entire life with them he made sure it was. Jeff was the kind of man who, if you called, no matter what time of day or night, he would have dropped anything and everything just to be there. No matter what the problem or situation was, he always had a way of fixing it. The fact is, that no matter who you were he would have been there for you because that was the kind of person he was. He was a man of great honor, and the king of Camelot. Everyone looked to him for encouragement and his word. He was pure genius, and his talents led him to seek fulfillment within his life. Jeff will be missed, and his work and teachings will shine bright in everyone he touched. He may be gone, but his legacy will live.
