Jeff has developed a storied past since first attending in 1999. In his first year of attendance, he infamously forgot to bring hiking shoes and instead “hiked” in sandals. This proved to be challenging, but not impossible! He was also directly involved with the near death of another infamous TR 1999 attendee in challenging him to consume 2 Twinkies in less than a minute. If not for the half-finished can of Mountain Dew left behind by Scott Berger in the back of the Zelenkovich van, we may have seen a fatal conclusion to that challenge. 3 years later, he not only earned himself the first ever demerit for forgetting about Turkey Run in 2002, but paved the way for his receipt of the first ever "Most Improved" Award in 2003 - the now pre-established goal for anyone who receives a demerit at TR. Contributing to his “Most Improved” title in 2003, was his proclamation of Serb Fest as “a weekend of Fire & Ice”. This of course would become a theme and subtitle of the Second Generation’s take on Serb Fest and would ultimately become immortalized as the title for the 2004 DVD release documenting TR 2003. Now, having had perfect attendance since his controversial absent-mindedness, he's finally shedding the dark-cloud image that has been hanging over his head for so long. He's been an active participant and a fine representation of the Tenets of Turkey Run for nearly a decade now! He's proving why one day, he will surely gain Founding Member status! Let his story be an inspiration to anyone who finds him or herself on the dark side.
