In his short but full 40 years, Jeff made more of an impact than most people do in a lifetime. His passion for community, brotherhood, health, and all things “epic” was a beacon of positivity and hope to all who met him. He was the epitome of a life lived to the full, and he left nothing on the field. Jeff fought a great fight; he ran a great race; he kept the faith.
Because of Jeff’s great love for all of us, his family and friends are asking that you please consider helping Sarah and the boys, ensuring that Jeff’s legacy endures for many generations. There are three main ways to help:
MEMORIES – Thankfully, Jeff documented his life very well! Nothing would make Jeff happier than for his boys to know exactly the man he was, what he stood for, and to hear about all the lives their dad impacted. If you have memories of Jeff, please send your stories, pictures, videos, etc. to giosistories at gmail.com
FINANCIAL HELP – Sadly, no life insurance was in place. Sarah is comfortable with this being shared in hopes that others would be reminded to please plan for unexpected tragedy. All donations are greatly appreciated, and if we all pitch in, we can eliminate the financial burden for Sarah. If you have any questions, or would like to help in other ways, please contact Kent McBride at [phone redacted] or kmcbride at mmsendo.com.
LIVE HIS EXAMPLE - Amor fati is a Latin phrase that may be translated as, "love of one's fate.” Jeff believed amor fati, that everything, including suffering and loss, is good or, at the very least, necessary. Jeff trusted that God’s plan is sovereign, and He shapes us in every circumstance we face. Without a doubt, Jeff would want us to embrace God’s trajectory of our own lives, and be a beacon of all that is good in the world.
Jeff lived life to the full and loved his family, his friends, and everyone he met with reckless abandon – let’s go do the same.
Please know that all funds will be transferred directly to Sarah, by me (Kristen Miller - family friend).
