Jeffrey moved to Omak with his family, where he began school. While in Omak, he was introduced to T-ball, which developed into a life-long love of baseball. At the age of 9, his family moved to Colville, where he began the fourth grade. Jeffrey’s love for baseball continued to grow throughout his education as he participated on Little League, Babe Ruth, high school and on American Legion teams. The highlight of his baseball career was leading the underdog Lions to the Little League championship in his final year.
Jeffrey began working at Radio Shack while in high school and developed an avid interest in technology and electronic gadgets, especially cell phones. He was a young entrepreneur and began as a boy selling golf balls he had found to passing golfers. He enjoyed working with people and excelled in sales. Jeffrey graduated from Colville High School in 2003 and moved to Spokane that fall. He worked at Radio Shack in the Northtown Mall while attending Eastern Washington University. In 2004, Jeffrey began working for Wireless Advocates that operates cell phone kiosks in Costco stores. He worked his way from sales to kiosk manager at the Costco Store in the Valley. He was a loved and respected member of their sales team.
He was an avid fan of the Spokane Chiefs hockey team and the Seattle Seahawks. In the summers, he enjoyed time on the golf course and during the winter months, Jeffrey snowboarded at area ski lodges.
