I'm sorry for Letitia and the family's loss. I met Jeff in Fall 2018 at San Juan College after I relocated my family back to Farmington. We became good friends through our engagement in STEM studies at SJC and found ourselves always pushing each other academically. We knew we had a mutual goal which was to graduate within four years to provide for our families, this was his passion. We also shared a common interest in hunting and archery, and he was the first person to invite me out to the archery shootout that was held each year. We made it goal to get better and take that time to just get back to nature and just reset before getting back at the books. I will miss him dearly, he was a great man and I'm thankful I had the opportunity to know him.
