Words cannot express my sorrow hearing the news this morning. I was sincerely touched by witnessing the life of this man and his family, however briefly I knew them. It was pure joy seeing his passion for Jesus in church and in Bible study. Know that God reached out to many unknown through Jeff. What a special guy. My love and prayers go out to the Penson family.

Love and prayers to you, Melissa, the children and family. I will remember Jeff as a true, humble, and loving servant of Jesus Christ. He loved his family beyond measure and he so unselfishly served his church and community. He loved the quietness and peace of the outdoors and I know he loved the time he spent in the woods behind the home of my mom and Dad. I will always remember hearing about the white deer he got behind their house and how my Dad would have been so tickled hearing about that adventure. Jeff has touched the hearts of so many of us and we will remember him as the love and light of Jesus Christ. I pray the arms of Jesus hold you and comfort you and please know you are loved and prayed for during the days ahead.

Melissa, you and your family have been in our thoughts and prayers since day one. We love you and your precious family. Jeff was a wonderful and godly man. When we heard him sing Give Me Jesus several times at Temple, it was so genuine and sweet. You could tell how much he loved the Lord. I can see his big smile at the feet of Jesus now. Randy and I will continue to pray for you and your family.
Love,
Randy and Debbie Gosey

The Penson family, I am sorry for your loss. Jeff was a good friend of mine through our high school years. He was a great football player but most importantly he was a great friend off the field. Although we did not keep in touch with each other over the years, I have always when reminiscing high school days have had fond memories of Jeff. You are in my thought and prayers. If you need anything please let me know. Todd Norville
