Jeff met Martha in 1967 and they were married in 1968 and raised two very successful children. Jeff has been a very attentive husband, father and grandfather. He was intensely proud of his family and focused much of his time and energy on them. After school, and a short transportation career in Ontario, the family relocated to Leduc, AB. Where Jeff felt very much at home, He worked hard through his career eventually managing a large department within the Department of Transportation (maintenance division) in Grande Prairie where the family lived for eighteen years.
