To the family of Jeff, I was lucky enough to have grown and schooled with such a wonderful human being. My memories will serve as a reminder of just what a courageous and loving person he was. I hadn't seen Jeff in years, however, he opened his arms and gave warm hugs when we did see each other again and always had such kind words. My love and heart-felt condolences to you all.

There is so much I could say about Jeff that everyone (family and friends) will agree with but what stands out most to me was Jeff’s sense of humor and delivery of the stories of growing up. Just thinking of some of these makes me laugh out loud every time and if you were fortunate enough to hang out with Jeff you were sure to leave with a smile on your face and most of the time with a stomach ache from laughing so much. My friends and I frequently refer back to these times and have a great laugh. Jeff was truly one of a kind and I’m gonna really miss him. I’m glad that I have a head full of stories and laughs I can cherish and remember Jeff by.

Jeff was a man of such diverse talents. He will be greatly missed. I will always remember him playing a guitar solo at the wedding of my son and his niece in 2018. And I also think of him with gratitude every time I look out in our back yard, which Jeff completely reshaped and transformed with landscaping in 2019 into a welcoming outdoor space, in a way I didn't think was even possible -- he had wonderful skills and vision. We extend our deepest condolences to all the Souza family. Rest in peace, Jeff. You are missed already.
