Jeff and his wife, Laurel, grew up in the Portland area and moved back after school and work took them out of state. Laurel works as a pediatrician for The Children's Clinic, based out of Tualatin. Jeff enjoys watching and playing football, waterskiing, and spending time with his growing family. Although they root against each other when their alma maters play, Jeff and Laurel were able to come together during their time in Ann Arbor to root for the Wolverines.
