He was posthumously awarded The Bronze Star with Valor for his actions on his last mission in Operation Iraqi Freedom, that ensured no other lives were lost in his unit during the IED attack that took his.

Wonderful sense of humor but all business and totally focused when on duty. Made his men feel like family. He put others first.

When Jeffery put his mind to something, he did it thoroughly and he did it well. This attribute was evident from boyhood to his chosen profession in the military, and he gave his life doing what he loved.
