Jeff and his wife, Mary Ann, loved to travel, bike, kayak and hike. They enjoyed many adventures together exploring National Parks, beautiful beaches, European countries and US cities.

Jeff remained in close contact with his childhood, college and post college friends. An annual Florida Gator Football Game gathered a large group each year. His relationships with Bill Blagdan, Mike Ross and Bill Ross were especially dear to his heart. Jeff became family to their wives and Uncle Jeff to their children. He was also a fun and loving uncle to Mary Ann’s nieces and nephews.

Survivors include his wife, Mary Ann; mother, Ellen; sister, Rebecca Weller; his special son, George Knight Jones; stepson Christopher (Madeline) Tipton; grandson, Julian Tipton; nephew Cory (Danielle Shreffler) Weller; and Aunt Abby Herring.
