Outside of work, Jeff enjoys sending time with his family where they yardwork gardens and landscape flowers. He continues to pursue his long-time interest in the restoration of houses and cars, to include a 1960 Austin Healey ‘Bugeye’ Sprite.

Jeff earned his Associates in Civil Engineering from Erie County Community College, sparking his interest and leading him to study Architecture at Ohio University where he graduated in 1970.
