Jeffrey was born and raised by Marvin and Jeanne Schmall of Madera, California. He attended Eastin-Arcola Elementary and graduated from Madera High School, Class of 1976. He attended Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo and studied Metallurgical Engineering. During that time, he married Lisa McDaniel, who had a longtime crush on Jeffrey. They started a family and raised two daughters on their ranch in Madera.
Jeffrey was a farmer, as well as a Quality Control Inspector. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father and known by his granddaughters as “Papa J”. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, farming, and most of all spending time with his family.
