Help Jeff keep his only surviving guitar.

Back in July, I lost all of my belongings as well as all of my guitars and gear, that were being stored across the country until I could afford to move everything back to my home state, in a fire. Unfortunately, I was not compensated for any of my losses in the 1.2 million dollar settlement. This was quite possibly the most devastating thing to ever happen to me, and has set me back to an extreme degree as I was already struggling to get back on my feet again due to the sudden relocation. I was recently laid off from my job as a supervisor at a local company due to the office closing, which has forced me to put my only surviving guitar up for sale while I look for a new job. 

At the advice of many of you who may be reading this, I have set up this page to try and raise the funds to keep the guitar. I’m not asking for anything concerning all my losses in the fire, as those reach the tens of thousands, but just the amount that I was selling the guitar for and currently in need of. 

I was really opposed to doing one of these as I feel uncomfortable with them usually, but after many messages from fans asking I realized it’s worth a shot. 

If you ever enjoyed my musical contributions to Norma Jean or were inspired by me in some way, feel free to kick a dollar my way to help.

Anything is absolutely appreciated from the bottom of my heart.
