OT: JustJeff/Sad News

Postby JustJeffJr » Fri Oct 16, 2015 5:31 pm

I'm not really good at this, so I'll just come out and say it. My Dad, who you all knew as JustJeff, passed away yesterday after a difficult battle with cancer. I'm sure he would have wanted you all to know how much he loved talking Packers with you guys, and how much joy the team brought him over the course of his life.

I am extremely sorry to see this!
I have only known your father on here, but over the years have read stories and shared family pictures with him and always looked forward to reading his posts about how he become a Packer fan.

I wish the best for you and your family at this time and I will be thnking about him this Sunday.
RIP Peace Jeff

Oh man.. I don't have the words currently.

I've always enjoyed the conversation with your dad regarding our beloved Packers.

I'm terribly sorry for your loss. He'll be in my thoughts.

:(
RIP JustJeff

So sorry hear this. I did not know JustJeff personally but did exchange personal messages a few times. May he rest in peace. He will be missed.
You think these are tough times? For your sake, I hope you never see tough times.

Very very sad news. While he will be missed greatly in our little corner of the internet, my thoughts especially go out to his family.

No, every post is not secretly about wanting Capers fired.

Unbelievably saddened by this.

When I made the jump over to this site, now 4 years ago, I don't mind sharing that JustJeff was probably the largest reason why I decided to stick around. He was so welcoming and just a great guy to have a conversation with. I'm not surprised that he chose not to disclose his personal struggles with us, but sure would have loved the opportunity to share my admiration for him with him.

He will be truly missed.

As others have said, thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I imagine a loss this significant in an internet forum is 100x that in real life.

I'm blown away. I can't believe it. So sorry for your loss JJJR. I met you at the Baltimore game, this is Nick. Jeff was a great man. He will be missed not only in your world, but surely around here.
