Jeff was a volunteer Fire Captain at Thorold Station 4, coached minor hockey in Thorold, operated his construction business throughout the Niagara Region and was involved in the family farm.  Jeff loved the game of hockey and was eager to help anyone in need, so what better way to honor him than to host a hockey tournament in his name and donate the proceeds to local students trying to better their future.
