ImageAfter over 15 years in Rotary, Jeff admitted this was the first time he had ever done a Classification talk. Jeff was born in Vancouver, and spent his early years in Beaverdell in the South Okanogan, where his father owned the local Hotel. He left Beaverdell when he was 12 and moved to Coquitlam. He is quite the Jack of all trades, master of none, which resulted in being evicted from High School due to bad attendance.  One day when the Principal was looking for Jeff he was found to be working on his car when actually he should have been in school, hence the "eviction" He spent many years working at a local Volkswagen dealership in the service and parts departments. He returned to his schooling after some time and obtained a degree from SFU which lead him to completing his CA designation with Deloyte and Touche in Abbotsford. While in practice he worked in Kelowna where he was a Charter member of the Okanogan Mission Rotary Club, in Abbotsford and locally. Jeff is now retired but continues to be an active member of numerous Associations and Societies including the Surrey Board of Trade, South Surrey Chamber of Commerce, Field House Society and the Fraser Valley Executive Association.  Jeff also hold the office of Treasurer for District 5050 and of course this Club.
