I am saddened to hear that the Stewart Family has suffered such a great loss in the passing of Jeff. I hope that each one of you can draw on your belief in Jesus Christ as you adjust to the changes in your lives, and that His love for you will soften the impact. May you be blessed with the comfort of knowing that you will be with Jeff again. I am happy to have known Jeff, and the Stewart Family, when we were growing up on Michigan Ave. in East Liverpool, Ohio.

I am so sorry for the loss of Jeff. I remember when he use to hang out at our house with Mark and the great time he, and all of us, had with him. He will be greatly missed. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Jeff was my Captain for over 6 years at YFD during which time we fought a lot of fire together. He loved what he did and provided a positive example of how a Captain should conduct himself. I see his influence coming out now as I captain my own crew. I’m proud to have served with Jeff. May God bless your family in your time of loss.
