Jeff Hill

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: York, PA

Branch of Service: U.S. Air Force

Rank: Captain

Captain Jeff Hill enlisted in the Air Force right out of high school and worked as an electrician on F-15’s. After receiving his pilot wings, he served as a First Assignment Instructor Pilot flying the T1 Jayhawk at Columbus AFB, Mississippi, and later flying in his dream assignment — C17’s in Alaska.

Jeff was an amazing man with a contagious smile and magnetic personality. He tackled every day of his life with enthusiasm, a great attitude, a smile and a little witty sarcasm. He was an absolute joy to be around. His personality was infectious and drew people to him. Each problem was fun, and each discussion was full of humor. Walking away without a gut laugh was rare.

Jeff was a man who loved life. He had a personality that could light up a room, and in even the shortest of exchanges, he had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in the room. He was witty, funny, and genuine. He took a lot of pride in serving his country and taking care of his people. He loved flying, but loved
being a father and husband above all else.
