In September 2018, Jeff was diagnosed with stage 3A colon cancer. After an initial surgery to remove a tumor left him with compartment syndrome and delayed his treatment, he eventually found great care at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Jeff started chemotherapy there in February 2019.

One hard-fought year later, Jeff and his family welcomed the news that his cancer had gone into remission. However, in just six months, another scan revealed it had returned with a vengeance and was starting to spread to his liver.

After an unsuccessful HIPEC surgery in June 2021, Jeff’s only recourse was to return to chemotherapy in order to retain as much life as possible.

In December 2021, scans showed that the cancer had further metastasized into his liver and other internal organs. Since the chemotherapy regimen was not working, Jeff and his oncology team made the heartbreaking choice to halt treatment. To say he fought the cancer valiantly is an understatement! Jeff lived out his remaining days at home under hospice care - with a short stint at Evergreen Hospice Care Center.

On Monday, January 17, Jeff passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family.  We will be sharing information on his Celebration of Life here on this CaringBridge site. 

Jeff was a dedicated father to his son Luke (15) and stepchildren Bryson (16) and Iris (11), as well as a loving husband to his wife, Kirsten. He was the ultimate "cat daddy" to Bella, Mac, and Cheese. Jeff attended Washington State University and was the #1 Coug fan on the planet. He was also a walking music encyclopedia.

Please keep his family and many friends in your thoughts and prayers, and post your well wishes and favorite memories here.
