i knew jeff for more than 10 years. he loved bjj and mma and we would talk about topics that were posted on this board, laugh about some of the crazy things on the UG, and the upcoming fights.

jeff was one of rashad's original training partners in lansing. he was a huge fan of the sport, and after he moved to florida we would talk over the phone during or immediately after rashad's fights to share the moment.

jeff loved martial arts. he taught children's classes at a tma school here in lansing for 4 or 5 years. that was one of the hardest things he left behind when he moved. he had difficulty finding a place to train when he worked in plant city, but was excited at the possibilities when he moved to tampa. i know he competed in the leo grappling tournaments in florida, and the training and weight cutting leading up to those tournaments were exciting for him.

i'm sad beyond words. i felt like i needed write something about jeff that people like him might appreciate. thanks for indulging me.

be careful out there. the rest of us DO appreciate what you do every day.
