  48. Erin and family;

    I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear about Jeff’s passing. I loved working with him at the AESO and looked up to him. He taught me a ton about the HR world, and about fatherhood and being a husband. I loved the times when we’d sit down and chat in his cubicle about various things and he’d listen to my challenges and dole out his wisdom. I also loved his sense of humour. Damn, I was looking forward to our next coffee/beers together. Jeff will be missed by many. I hurt for your family.

    Although we did not know you well, I wanted to extend my sympathies for your loss. I hope the love of your daughters will bring you strength in these early days and that in time you will be able to remember with smiles and laughter. Lean on your family as it is love that carries on in our hearts and helps us be strong when we hurt as you do now.
