Jeffrey lived in Jacksonville, FL with his foster parents, Steve and Sandy until October 2013 when he was adopted by Kent and Shantel Dudley. Jeffrey loved his snuggle time, being rocked and read to. He loved Thomas the train and his Cars movies. He adored his younger siblings and would coo at them and giggle nonstop.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Laurence and Arlene Dudley and Eileen Hogoboom and sisters, Raniyah Dudley and Zekiah Dudley.
