Jeff received his education locally and shortly after became a proud member of the Marine Corps. After leaving the Marines he began his career driving semi-trucks all over the country delivering homes and making friends. In1980, Jeff was united in marriage with Jean Cassutt Hagen. For the past 42 years they worked together. Jeff transported oversized loads (mainly homes) all over the country and Jean drove the flag car so they spent most of the last 42 years together all the time. Later in life he continued his passion of helping others by joining the Free Masons and Shriners. Outside of trucking Jeff enjoyed fishing and hunting especially traveling out west with his cousins and family elk hunting. Jeff had a great sense of humor and also appreciated all the good times spent with his trucking buddies.
