"JJ was not only a great soldier, but also a great friend and mentor to many. He inspired all those around him to do better, learn more, and just want to be a better person. I am honored to have served with him on 2 deployments, as well as remaining with him from the time of the rollover until we loaded him in the medevac to Laundstuhl. Jeff never gave up the fight! I still carry him with me today & think of him every day.
God Bless him, and may God comfort his friends and family who surely miss this true hero"

""IT'S NOT THE CRITIC WHO COUNTS, NOR THE MAN WHO POINTS OUT HOW A STRONG MAN STUMBLED, OR WHERE THE DOER OF DEEDS COULD HAVE DONE IT BETTER. THE CREDIT BELONGS TO THE MAN WHO'S IN THE AREANA, WHO'S FACE IS MARRED WITH BLOOD, DUST AND SWEET. WHO STRIVES, WHO SPENDS HIMSELF FOR A WORTHY CAUSE.""
