Jeff died Aug. 16, 2020, of cancer. In Jeff we lost one of the most positive, courageous, and thoughtful souls, one who showed deep dedication and love to his family, his patients, and our class.

An early survivor of spina bifida surgery, Jeff was born in Trenton, N.J., and majored in religion. After earning a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from New York University and studying psychoanalysis, Jeff moved to Yardley, Pa., and established a successful private practice while also working with community mental-health centers in Philadelphia and Bucks County.

An author, a regular speaker at area schools, and a creative soul, Jeff was also a fine musician on both guitar and piano.

Jeff co-chaired the Class of 1981’s 25th reunion. For many years he also served on the board of Princeton ReachOut, a civic-service partnership of the ’56, ’81, and ’06 classes. His persistent efforts led to the creation of a social-entrepreneurship mentoring website for undergraduates.

Making their home in Yardley, Jeff and his wife, Florence, raised twins, Henry and Julia. To them and to Jeff’s sister, Deborah, the class extends our sympathies.
