Jeffery L. Harris, Age 72, passed away on April 27th, 2022. A faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jeffery was sealed for time and eternity to his sweet-heart Cindy in the Los Angeles Temple on Dec. 9th, 1972. Together they cultivated a loving home with eight children April, Jeffery Israel, Mindy, Emmy, Katelynn, Chris Everly, Michaela, and Rebekah. Jeffery is reunited with parents Thomas and LouJean and survived by loving sister Judy.
Jeffery grew up near the sandy shores and rolling hills of San Diego, California. As an active youth he loved to surf and competed in school sports such as wrestling. Following high school graduation, he served as a missionary in the Northern States as a representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His service among communities and sacred sites of the restoration, built a desire to develop his talents in communications. Jeffery met his wife Cindy while serving in Carthage, Illinois. Following his missionary service, Jeffery attended Brigham Young University, majoring in Broadcast and Communication.
While establishing a career in broadcasting and providing for a growing family, Jeffery continued to develop skills that gave him the keen ability to repair most anything. Adventures in broadcasting took him and his family to Utah, Southern California, Idaho, and Arizona. Jeffery was adaptable and quickly entrusted to positions of leadership. Skilled at working with people, he inspired creative ways to fix problems. Jeffery fostered an atmosphere of personal growth as a leader; influencing change he would reprove with sharpness, but was quick to follow with an increase in love.
In the Fall of 2017, Jeffery retired from Broadcasting due to health concerns. Surrounded by family, following years his energies were spent leading, loving, and embracing his family with Christ-like charity. His family, influence and example have sent ripples through-out the world.
The family requests those who wish to express sympathy to consider donating in remembrance of Jeffery to www.t2t.org the Tunnel to Towers Foundation in lieu of flowers.
Services will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 26023 S. Lemon Ave, Queen Creek, AZ. 85142 on Saturday May 28th at 9:30am. For virtual viewing information please email email@example.com
Jeff has a piece of my heart. I was his companion in Carthage on his mission. He was an outstanding person. Jeff was full of love humor and kindness. He will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to Cindy and the children. Jeff is with family on the other side of the veil and will welcome all when it is our turn to continue our eternal journey. Hugs ❤️
Jeff shared his love of broadcasting and used his patience, knowledge and skills to mentor a generation of radio talent. I was fortunate to say he was my mentor, my champion and my friend. He was a good man with a strong faith, great love for God and his family and he will be deeply missed.
The world is better because Jeff was here. Always a warm and welcoming smile that let you know
all would be okay.
Jeff was a broadcast professional in every sense of the word.
I had the wonderful opportunity of working with Jeff years back and I will never forget his professionalism, kindness, inclusiveness, caring for everyone, love of broadcasting, and deep love for his family.
It was a privilege to have known him.
My condolences to the Harris Family for your loss.
