Jeff was my longest friend. We met when we were 2 or 3 years of age. He had a heart of gold. He never cared about money or possessions. He loved all his friends and the many friendships he cherished over the years. He also loved his dogs. He treated everyone and every animal with a kind heart. Jeff was also a spectacular athlete. He was an amazing long distance runner winning many races and beating many of the top distance runners in school. His happy-go-lucky way and smile will be missed by his classmates at McCaskey and also by all his friends. I will always remember my friend, Monkey Man, a.k.a., Jeff Zipp.
