There is only one Jeff Baker and I'm so proud to say I knew him. He always greeted me with a smile and kind words, always interested in how I was and what I had been up to. He was one of the most passionate, giving people I have ever worked with. I will miss his infectious smile and kidding. My thoughts are with his family and all that knew him.
