I started cipco in 2002. Jeff was my shift engineer and pretty much took me under his wing and taught me so much about a power plant. But besides being your shift engineer he was also a great person. Even though I didn't talk to him too much lately after cipco closed I still respect him for all of his dedication at the power plant. Great guy and will be missed by many. Rip buddy
