I worked with Jeff at MTV Positronic in the Molding Department. Jeff was one of the best people I ever worked with. I enjoyed his company and he could always be counted on for a helping hand or listening ear--or both. He would play Christmas music back in his area all year long. Some of the guys would rib him about it, but he didn't care. He said it put him in a good mood. I often think of Jeff when I hear a Christmas song out of season.
