Jeffrey John English

Sep 11, 1964
Jan 15, 2024


With sadness Jeffrey John English passed away on January 15, 2024.  He was born September 11, 1964 to Fred and Juanita English.  He is survived by his sister’s Paula Peterson, Jean Riley and Ann Miller.  He was a great uncle to numerous nephews and nieces.

Jeffrey was a marine brat and moved often as a youth.  States include, Oregon, Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and Virginia.

He graduated from Central Catholic High School in Portland, OR. Class of 1982.  After high school he studied psychology at Portland Community College.

Most all Jeffrey’s jobs were in customer service.  From the Heathman Hotel in Portland, Disney World at Animal Kingdom in Florida, to South Rim Grand Canyon as a manager for 10 years.  Jeffrey loved working with people.

His personal hobbies included candy crush, reading and collecting Wonder Woman, Alien and Godzilla items.  He was a big fan of Stevie Nicks.

Jeffrey will be remembered for his love for people.  He was always seeing the good over the bad in life.  He will be missed by many and the number of people he touched in his life was more than he would’ve ever thought.  We believe he’s in Gods hands now; no more pain.  At Peace.  He will be deeply missed and forever in our hearts.
