Born February 13, 1963, in Norfolk, VA, he was the son of Luther Ward and Gloria Nance Ward. Jeff graduated from Satellite Beach High School and the University of Central Florida. He was a hard worker who began his 36-year career working in General Financial Information Systems at Orlando Regional Medical Center in Orlando, FL before later working for Lee Health in Fort Myers. Jeff strived for perfection in his work but never forgot to be kind and giving to others for their contributions. He was a dedicated father who invested in the lives of his children by coaching his son’s basketball and soccer teams along with his daughter’s soccer teams. Jeff was very supportive and never missed a dance recital for his daughter in her 16 years of dance! He was involved with Little League Umpiring for 25 years and received the honor of being invited to a Little League World Series in Portland, Oregon. Jeff faced many challenges in life but he fought them all with a quiet determination that was an example of true courage to those who knew him.
