Edited on 12/29/17 -
It is with a heavy heart I share that Jeff went home to be with Jesus last night.  We are grateful that he is free from pain and walking with his Savior; brokenhearted for this world has lost such a light. Please check back on the updates for details on the service arrangements in the next few days. 

In August 2015, while Tracy was on mission in Uganda, Jeff was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  He underwent  whipple surgery and endured  a four month recovery period, then started his first round of  chemotherapy . There was such hope when his response to the chemotherapy  was remission for almost a year. 

In March 2017, a blood test revealed that the cancer had returned. Chemotherapy began again, however, it was not successful and because it was so hard on his body, his team at UCI determined it was not in his best interest to continue with that therapy. 

He then had a Y90 radiation procedure to help slow the cancer.  Since then, he has been in and out of the hospital with lung infections and other complications. 

This week, the doctors informed Jeff and Tracy that there were no further treatments available. The cancer is spreading exceedingly quickly and Jeff is now at home with hopsice care. Because of the course this illness has taken, Jeff has been unable to work and Tracy has been home full time on a leave of absence as his caregiver. 

The medical bills as well as household expenses are mounting; it would be a blessing to Tracy and the boys to not have to worry about their finances as they are walking through this extremely dark time in their family's life. 

Jeff has been a blessing, light and inspiration to every person who knows him. Please give as you are able and always, always be praying for him, Tracy, Andrew, Jonathan and Christian.
