I worked under Jeff at an electronics warehouse in Plano around 2011, he was young but I still saw him as a mentor in life and in work. He always wanted to be a chef and when he got fed up and quit to pursue a career in cooking, I felt really proud of him, I think of him when I think of pursuing my own dreams. He was a really cool dude and far too young.
