About Jeff

Jeff is a highly distinguished scientist and project manager working at one of the largest healthcare companies in the world. Jeff is solutions focused and has a keen eye for details.  He routinely manages multi-billion-dollar projects that leverage thousands of resources.   He strongly believes that when you harness people’s passion, you come out on the other side with innovation and success.  Jeff and his team are currently working on a variety of solutions to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

As an involved father and sports fan, you may also know him as “Coach Jeff”.  Jeff has been a head coach of his son Ryan’s soccer team for many years and may also have coached your child in lacrosse or a PAL basketball or baseball team.

Jeff’s approach is “we must focus on simple, fit for purpose solutions that make sense to help make our limited tax dollars go a long way.  This is why my father said to me that volunteers make a town a home.  It takes volunteers who will treat the town like their own property and invest the same effort and insist on the same pride to ensure things are done right.  I want only the best Berkeley Heights and to ensure that we make it a place that everyone can call home for generations to come.  We can achieve this by being open to diverse perspectives and common-sense solutions which emerge from simple dialogue.”’

Jeff believes National politics does not have a place locally and will work across party lines to serve our community fully.  This year, Jeff will serve on the Board of Health, the Commuter Parking & Access Task Force and the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Advisory Committee as a first year Council member.
