I have to say that by being introduced to Jeff's life of surfing, photography, friends, and family - my life has been completely changed for the better. I had never been to a paddle-out, nor did I know any member of Jeff's family or inner circle other than Adrian Chang. I am overwhelmingly grateful that I was allowed to be part of their services, and count myself lucky to have come in contact with you all - to celebrate the life of a man who was undoubtedly loved - an inspiration to all he came in contact with. I even bought my first surfboard, and every time I get in the water, I thank Jeff for the gifts he has brought into my life.
From my experience, you can learn a great deal about people by the company they keep, and through his friends and family I've learned a great deal about Jeff. The dedication and love that has been displayed has been an inspiration, and the love shown to Jeff is still clearly felt to this day.
Thank you all for allowing me to learn about Jeff. I'm honored that we have been able to be the ones to keep his memory alive in our work in Southeast Asia.
Much love to you all,
With contributions from Jeff's friends and family, we started a family and education program in Cambodia. We have been working with a small NGO in Cambodia, and since beginning the project for Jeff, we have made the call to our friends and families to help it grow, and it has... tremendously...
We now have many families with jobs and support, and just put 120 children in school for their first time.
This page will also be a place to share your thoughts about Jeff...
Jeff's life embodied the spirit of Guerrilla Aid by his exploration of the world and connecting with people on a personal level everywhere he went.
Jeff was truly a free spirit. A beautiful, precious and gentle soul. He stole the heart of everyone who was fortunate enough to encounter him.
Jeff had a passion for water and a lust for life. Surfing was his joy and photography was his god given talent. Jeff travele the world to remote locations in search of tranquility. In the interim, captures the hearts, faces, and places with a genuine story to be told through the eye of his lens.
Jeff cared about everything within the world and felt everyone's world within. He treated all with kindness. Speaking to anyone who caught his eye, he left a lasting impression... man, woman, and child. he could make you laugh while you were crying. He is still alive in our hearts, our minds and our words.
Now he is with us always.
When you feel the wind blow on any beach know that it is Jeff searching for the perfect wave... the sun on your face - a hug from Jeff... and the rain - a kiss from him.
He has touched our hearts forever, never to be forgotten or lost in the span of thought that rise above us.
We love you forever.
A Gallery of Jeff's Photography is coming soon!
