A few years ago, I applied for a position on my team. I was told I didn't get the job because there was someone that had many more years of experience.....
Boy am I glad that I did not get that job! Jefferson Davis was hired as our new manager. He was a kind, considerate leader, an all around nice guy and a friend. I'm glad I was blessed to cross paths with life is richer for it and he is missed.

Linda and I want to tell you that we are so sorry for your loss. We know that Jeff is at home in Heaven with Jesus where
you will join him one day. Though we know this is a tough time, it gives such peace to know that Jeff has gone to the place God has promised. We want to share a very favorite hymn that fits this time. The hymn is called "Joy comes in the morning." Please know that our prayers continue to go out for you in the days ahead.

Sherri, Jonathan & Tara, I am so sorry to hear this shocking, sad news. Jeff was such a great guy, one who was always a pleasure to be around. I’m so sorry I will be unable to attend his Memorial Service but want you to know I will be there in spirit. Prayers go out to all of you. Jeff was a blessing to all who knew him and will be missed.
