Dearest Riders,

This morning at 1:55AM Jeff passed on.

Thank you to everyone for the kind words of encouragement and hope over the past 15 months. They mean a lot to our family, knowing how many people’s lives he touched.

We are grieving the loss of this incredible man, but have peace in knowing he is no longer in pain or suffering. Today, God gains one of the greats. We hope he enjoys him up there as much as we did down here.

Please continue to keep us in your prayers.

~Zach and Maria


We will be holding a memorial service in Lincoln, Nebraska in the next few weeks.

This “Celebration of Life” will be held on Saturday, August 8th, 2015 at 2:00pm inside Memorial Stadium, West Stadium – Club Level 3.

Here we’ll be celebrating Jeff’s life, accomplishments and sending love up his way. Anyone who knew him, loved him, was inspired or impacted by him is more than welcome to join us on this day of remembrance.

For those unable to join us on this special day, we will be posting a fund to donate in his memory for any person who feels like giving. Please do this instead of sending flowers.
