My condolences to the Olson family. Jeff was a great man and I am without a doubt blessed to have been able to call him my friend. He always helped me when I struggled with things and I looked up to him for advice about many things. He always helped steer me back on track spiritually too. I could always be honest with him and never worry about judgements. We always had a blast discussing our plans for the 4th of July, and how we were going to set it all up. Jeff will be missed sooo much! I am very choked up for your loss, you have raised a good man and The Lord has brought him home, a faithful servent. The world will not be the same without him. My family's thoughts and prayers go out to the parents and children.

Jeff became my friend in high school and over the last few days I have had so many memories. He was funny and smart and sweet. As adults we stayed close and spent time talking on the phone about our work and family and God. The last time I saw him was about 10 years ago but those years were erased by his passing and it feels like yesterday. He was my friend and I will miss him.. I am praying for you all that you will be comforted in this time.
