Jeff was a great guy. He lived in Phila. I would see and talk with him at the local climbing gyms. I remember seeing at Birdsboro this past fall. I think he just got back from a climbing trip from Canada, and was showing us pictures. If only I knew! I'll miss you, Jeff!

Goodbye Jeff!

Thanks for the valuable info. While I didn't know Jeff, friends of mine knew him well and he will be missed.
