Jeff, the youngest of five children born to a Czechoslovakian-born father who emigrated to the U.S. at age 15 and served in the U.S. military in Vietnam and a mother whose family lineage traces back to the 1600s in the U.S., all still live near one another and attend Sunday dinner together every week. It is this tight family background, “That formed the person I am today,” Jeff said.
