Jeff and his wife, Marian, stay active in a number of community programs. Jeff regularly reads to students, volunteers with local non-profit organizations including the First Tee, Alzheimer's Association, and the annual Tour de Palm Springs. He also serves as a board member for the California Desert Arts Council and the La Quinta Arts Foundation.
In his spare time, Jeff and his family like to take in all the desert has to offer. He loves to ride his mountain bike along the desert's many hillside trails, hike with his family and friends, golf, and spend as much time as he can with his wife Marian, his son Joshua, their dog Ariel and cat Ikaika.
