Jeff’s Bio

Jeff ParkerJeff was diagnosed with melanoma in July of 2009 and began fighting this disease with the same approach he had to any other obstacle that ever presented itself.  He was most impressed with the young children he came across at Dana Farber Cancer Institute while he was treating. They always had a smile on their face and never seemed to let cancer get them down. After 10 months of treatment, Jeff lost his fight and battle against cancer on May 22, 2010.

Jeff was a very humble person that made a point to speak with everyone.  He always gave everything he did his best effort and never accepted anything less. He expected this same ideal from his family, friends, and the kids he coached. He always had a smile on his face and enjoyed his short life to the fullest. He has left a tremendous impression on many, many people.
