Jeffrey James Turner passed away unexpectedly on November 15, 2019 in Portland, Oregon.
Jeff was born in Eugene, Oregon on July 5, 1985 to Harold E. (Gene) Turner and Kim Turner (Humble). He attended Willamette High School and graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor's degree from the Charles H. Lundquist College of Business. Jeff loved to travel and was always on the move. He had aspirations of becoming a lawyer, and fighting for underrepresented people. He always fought for what he believed in and doing the right thing.
Jeff had a huge heart, and lit up the room everywhere he went with his infectious laughter; his nickname growing up was 'Sir Laugh-Alot'. He loved music, his dog, his mama, his family, Batman, Oregon Ducks, and LSU Tigers. He also loved the outdoors and sitting around the fire with friends and family.
Jeff was preceded in death by his brother, Ryan in 2007.
He is survived by his mother, Kim; father, Harold (Gene); step-father, Brian; siblings, Sarah & Eric; wife, Ashley; son, Calvin; step-daughter, Leona; and his dog, Bruce Wayne.
