Jeffrey was born on June 8th in North Canton, Ohio. He attended Hoover High School there and always knew he wanted to be an actor. He went on to Carnegie-Mellon University but dropped out in 1969, and moved to New York. He was called back awhile later by a college friend, John-Michael Tebelak, who was creating the musical GODSPELL for his master's thesis in college. This is how Jeffrey got started. He was an original cast member of the show, and went on to star in the movie. He worked as an actor in several stage shows and two other movies. He also wrote music and songs, but none of his work was ever recorded. He died in May of 1986 of AIDS.
