Support Kat and the Kids

It is with unbelievable grief and sadness that we share the passing of our beloved Jeffrey. On Christmas Eve, Jeff went out to do a last-minute errand. When he spoke with Kat, he explained that he didn’t feel well. He went to his car where he fell unconscious due to a brain aneurysm. A passerby called 911, and he was transported to Baystate Hospital. They tried their best but the damage was too great. We are grateful that he was not driving when he became unconscious.

Anyone who knew Jeff, knew that he would give them the shirt off of his back. He adored his two children, Evan (7) and Ella (3) and his partner Kat. It was clear by all the pictures hung all over his work van. He was so proud of them, and they brought him so much happiness. Just a few weekends ago, wearing boots that were too small for him, Jeff spent the day teaching Evan how to ski. He just loved driving Ella up and down our road in New Hampshire, on his dirt bike, with his “work slides” on and a horse helmet that was too small for his head. No matter what it was, he always did it with a smile on his face.

Jeff will be sorely missed by so many. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers. Hug your loved ones a little tighter today and tell them you love them whenever you can. Life is too fragile not to.

We are hoping, with the money raised, it will help with the medical bills accrued and living expenses for Kat and the kids. Any little bit will help and is greatly appreciated.
