Serving subsequently as a high school football and wrestling coach whose teams won multiple county and state championships, a college and high school football referee, Staff Director and Head of Security at Merriweather Post pavilion, with a stint as an Assistant to the Howard County Executive, Jeff was a beloved teammate, colleague, employee and manager.

Scott Starnes and his wife Lisa of Frisco, TX, sister Wendy S. Seiders and her husband Chris of Gaithersburg, MD, along with eight nieces and nephews and countless friends, all of whom will miss his larger than life personality, sense of humor and devotion.

I had the great pleasure of working with Jeff at UA. He was determined, dedicated, generous, caring, empathetic, funny, warm, and humble. I don't know his family but I would say, kudos to you. He was everything you would hope for in a person. My condolences to all of you. May his memory forever be a blessing to all of you.
