As Development Officer, Jeff goes into the community to connect supporters to Stepping Stone’s mission. This support comes through donations and volunteering, with Jeff’s passion being to help people direct their time and money toward something that is meaningful to them. Before becoming an employee at Stepping Stone, Jeff volunteered by coming in Tuesdays to help in the cafeteria. This three hours of weekly service became the highlight of his week, and he believes changed him for the better. He recommends service as a remedy for many of life’s ailments. Jeff grew up and resides in Anoka County where he and his wife enjoy spending time with their kids and grandchildren.
