A native of New England, Jeff's journey began with a degree in Fruit and Vegetable Science from the University of Massachusetts Stockbridge School of Agriculture in 1974.

During those formative years, he played a crucial role in establishing a UAN Terminal in Upstate New York, contributing to the early adoption of liquid fertilizer in the region.

Currently, as the General Manager of Liquid Products, LLC, Jeff oversees the operations of two manufacturing facilities and four terminals in New York.

Jeff's commitment to excellence extends to his roles in industry associations. He is a sustaining member of the New York State Agri Business Association of New York and New England, having served as Treasurer, Secretary, President, and on its board of directors.

Outside of his professional pursuits, Jeff enjoys a fulfilling family life, being happily married with two adult daughters and the proud grandparent of four grandchildren. His profound involvement, vision, and unwavering dedication continue to drive Liquid Products towards excellence, ensuring they meet the evolving needs of agriculture and industry while addressing the pressing challenges faced by both sectors.
