Jeff was employed as a supervisor at AB Specialty Silicones in Waukegan for the past seven years. He was a member and secretary for the Patriots Motorcycle Club Chapter 1 IL. He loved traveling to Utah to see his club brothers. Jeff enjoyed bowling at Sheridan Lanes, and was a Green Bay Packer, Chicago Cub, Tony Stewart and Chicago Blackhawk fan. He loved Harley-Davidson motorcycles and NHRA drag racing; one of his many friends was Tony Schumacher. Jeff was a friend to everyone he met; he was unforgettable and impactful. He always had a smile, handshake and a laugh for you. Jeff was also a “pay it forward guy”; his brother, is in need of a liver transplant, and Jeff was prepared to donate part of his. He didn’t get the chance and would appreciate anyone who is willing to get tested to find out if they are a match and would be willing to donate, just as Jeff would have.
