    To the family of Jeff,My deepest condolences. I met Jeff just 2 years ago while working with him at the CTA his quick wit and the ease he had with people made me feel comfortable right away,Jeff you will be missed.

  17. Bill Paar condolence:

    As a fraternity brother of Jeff (Beav, as we knew him), I offer all his family my deepest regrets to Jeff’s passing. Jeff was one who relished life and seemed to put all the fun into everything he tried. He would wear his emotions on his sleeve and even in a Packer infested State as WI, loved the Bears and Blackhawks. Many an evening down at one of the bars was spent playing pinball or enjoying everyone’s company. I’m sure he’s in Heaven talking sports and seeing what kind of mischief he could get into. My prayers and thoughts go out to you all.

  18. Denise and Stuart Boba condolence:

    We admired Jeff’s leadership skills in the ski club. Plus he was just a fun guy! Always pleasant and easy to talk to. Very patient and ran a great trip!

    We loved you Jeff! RIP

  20. Rich and Connie Mylak condolence:

    Please accept our condolences to the Sapinski family.

    Jeff was always a good and positive force in our lives.

    Starting from Rich’s time with Jeff on the track team at RB through the formation of the softball teams and founding of Sanctuary Ski Club where we ultimately met and subsequently married.

    Ski trips, camping, softball, golfing, football pool we’re just a small part of our enjoyed lives together with Jeff.

    There was no truer or better friend than Jeff.

    His loss will leave a void in our lives that can never be filled.

    God Bless Him.
