    Jeff was a good friend of mine and the whole banking/real estate community. He will be missed but not forgotten by all the people who he helped build their dreams with. He helped some realize the gift of home ownership, careers in the bank, and other like me, he helped influence ands build a career as the premier hard money lenders in Houston. Our prayers are with Jeff and his family.
