Jeff loved to golf. He took yearly trips to do so and golfed as often as he could at home. He also enjoyed hunting, NASCAR, snowmobiling up north and traveling the world. He was a huge supporter and fan of anything Kaukauna. Jeff was a member of the Kaukauna Wrestling Club, the Kaukauna Quarterbacks Club and a supporter of the Kaukauna Youth Baseball program. He coached his son’s baseball and football teams up until high school.

Jeff dedicated his life to the trucking industry. He was a state CDL examiner and he worked 29 years at VS Midwest Carriers as the Vice President of operations.
