There are so many things he taught me as a young teen that I passed on to my son, to the athletes I coached, and to the students I instructed. Jeff's legacy has touched lives that he never knew.
There were so many layers to him that were not apparent on the surface and certainly he was not one to boast or show off. It was these layers of character, work ethic, love of God, family, and Country, diverse interest, community involvement, and an intellectual approach to all challenges both in career and life that made Jeff Chase the admired man that he was. He and Kaggy made quite a team! John Harding

My condolences.

I had a nice conversation with him just a few weeks ago in the physical therapy waiting area......a very wise and down to earth man!

Mandy and family, I praise God for Jeff's life and all he meant to his family, his community and his friends. I was privileged to work with Jeff at the Northern Neck Soil and Water Conservation District 1988-1991. He was a supportive, informed and active advocate for local farmers and sustainable agriculture. As a Board Director he was engaged with our staff and supported our work in the area. Personally, he was always happy to see me and my children and I enjoyed sharing my family's story as we went from pregnancy, to births, childhoods and graduations. I will miss his charming smile, warm hugs, and big heart. May your loving memories bring you comfort and peace during these days and the days to come.
