ADD A MEMORY

Jeffrey and I went to SHS together. To say he wasn’t a popular kid was an understatement. He was the classic smart, fat kid with glasses. What a wonderful surprise to see him at our 30th reunion and see the wonderful man he became. He created an incredible video for us to view in the SHS auditorium showing various past and present facts about our school.

Learning of his passing as we plan for our 35th reunion is tough to take. Reminds us all to breathe deeply and be grateful for that breath.

My deepest sympathy to family, friends and colleagues.

There are no words that can express how sad I am about losing Jeffrey. I am so very sad for our little team who has lost two family members in a fifteen months period. I am so very sad for Wanda, Colin, Harriet, and the rest of Jeff's family and friends.

I hope that time will help us heal and that our memories of Jeff will eventually comfort us. The things I will remember most about Jeff are: his love for Wanda and Colin; his big smile; his jokes and laughter; his pranks; his smile and immediate response when I would ask him to do something: “yes ma’am”; his many accidents; his messy desk and many lost drill bits; and our frequent conversations about cycling, family vacations, exercise, and healthy eating.

Jeff, we miss you so very much!

Some people are defined by their years as a high school student - thankfully, Jeff was not! As a student, Jeff was pretty clear about how much he hated SHS. So, much to my surprise, it was shocking to see him working there. We talked about his love-hate relationship with SHS at that time. As we all know, pretty soon it was a love only place. Jeff loved his co-workers in AV and the students and staff. When setting up sound for the carnival, he gave me extra mics, batteries, and gently helped me understand what I had to do. Of course, knowing my limitations, he made sure either he or someone else would be available to help. Jeff was a unique man with a great smile, much patience, and plenty of love to share.

Jeff was a big part of my time in the department. I'm deeply saddened to hear of his passing. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to his family and the community.

You'll be missed but not forgotten!

There are some people that you meet in life who have a positive radiance about them, an infectious smile, a wonderful laugh and a warmth that is continually present. Jeff was one of those people.

I remember on many occasions eating lunch in AV and hearing a “Fang!” from across the room. When I turned around I would see Jeff walking in with a smile on his face. I always felt comfortable talking with him, even if for a minute before class and remember how he made me feel comfortable and at ease.

I also remember his laugh. What an infectious laugh he had, one of those that made you instantly smile. His ability to bring joy to others was contagious and something I won’t forget.

Over the years although we didn’t always keep in touch I would see his posts on Facebook and saw how much love he had for his wife and family and how proud he was of his son. I know that he will be dearly missed and remembered as a great father, a great husband and a great friend.

Thank you for the great memories.

I met Jeff when he was first started at Scarsdale. Our paths crossed often. I feel fortunate to have worked with him on a variety of projects: graduation, the school musical, concerts, assemblies, tech installations, video conferencing, board meetings, Jabberfest, and so much more. In all of those events I was always greeted with humor, support and the sense that he was glad to see me, although he always addressed me as "Mr. Cuk". Truth be known, I was also happy to see him. Jeff was a good, kind hearted man who would do all he could to help, with a dollop of levity.

I am sad of his passing, sad for his family, and sad to lose a friend.

What a kind soul he was. No matter how frantic people were with their tech issues, Jeff was so patient and had such a calming nature. He was unbelievably quick to fix any tech issue I’ve ever had...and I’ve had a lot. I will miss him. He was a truly special and talented man. ❤️

The first time I met Jeff, it was as though I had always know him. He was there to fix something, or build something. He somehow knew I was a cyclist and started up a conversation about biking while we did our work. Whenever we would see each other, we would share stories about our outdoor adventures and our families. Talking with Jeff always made me feel special and appreciated, and I hope I made him feel that way too.

Yet, as I read through the memories posted here, I realize Jeff made everyone feel that way. What an incredible gift he had. Sure, he could fix and build things, but he chose to nurture people in a way that does seem, almost supernatural. How lucky we all were to know him.

Wanda and Colin, we never met, but I know you were his true treasures- May he live well in your memories.

I am heartbroken.
Jeff was always so pleasant whenever he had to visit Quaker Ridge for a repair on one of the machines. I will surely miss him.

My deepest sympathies.
