Jeff is living proof that, “the difficult we do right away, the impossible takes a little longer!” He travels the globe with a very special message; that a real handicap is “…anything that keeps me from being or becoming all that I was created to be!”, “God uses the least likely person can accomplish the most extraordinary things in a most unusual way!”
