Default Jaws. Rest in peace brother.

I haven't been able to confirm this (His cell phone is shut off), but the details match. He's a really good guy and one of my favorite people here. Rest in peace brother.

http://www.katu.com/news/local/103090609.html

Edit; Confirmed. It was our friend Jaws. aka; Jeff A. Weathers

I'm just sick. I have no words.
Jeff touched my heart, many times.
I just can't go here!!!
Oh my gosh.
Jeff?
But I didn't get to say all I wanted- I mean... Oh dang.
Sigh....

I sent him a note several years ago asking if I could get some hop starts since he is/was a hop mogul.

My son and I went over and got 4 variety of hops from him and I have been tinkering trying to get them to look like Jeffs fields.

Jeff invited us into his man cave. Filled with tons of model airplanes, big screen TV and lots of video games. One heck of a nice guy, he even gave my son a fishing game for the Wii.

I will miss his post He was a very nice guy. RIP

I remember that day as well. Jeff was super nice and very helpful. Alas, the Mt. Hood didn't make it but the Cascade is still going. The fresh hop IPA will be just a little more bitter from this news.

This just pure speculation on my part, but Jeff had a known heart condition. He was hospitalized several times because of it since I've know him.

This intersection was very near his house. He knew it well. The accident happened in broad daylight, around 9 AM.

Just a guess.

From reading the description of the accident site, that was my first thought as well.

I didn't know him, but it's sad to lose one of our own nonetheless.

Jeff expressed a particular kindness to me at a difficult time in the past.
He was a good man, who will likely be deeply missed by those near and dear to him.
My deepest sympathies are with them.

Jeff lived not too far from where this happened and had been through that intersection thousands of time. This happened just down the road from me and it has been the site of many accidents over the years. I played a little ball with Jeff many years ago and I know lots of people that knew him very well.

I always enjoyed reading his posts

Very sad

My niece mentioned seeing the accident sceen as she was going to work but we had no idea who was involved.Hops and the Weathers name is synonymous in the area.

The last thing Jeff said to me (via PM) is "Where is Cool Texan when I need him?"
I wrote Cool and let him know, as he doesn't hang here much, anymore.

I have talked with Jeff on Several occasions he loved hearing about Daniel and always asked for updates on how he was doing in school. The one thing that stands out to me is Daniel Lost his Nintendo DS when out fishing once and Jaws went out and purchased him a new DS and some Games. He will be missed here on ifish and in our Household! rp

Wow....how sad, my prayers to his family and friends.

I met Jeff a few times, and had many PMs back and forth. Jeff had a great sense of humor, and was so witty he was very fun to be around.

I will always remember the day he fished with me, it was a very nice fall day, we were trolling upper Tillamook Bay, we had been joking around, and coming up with funny catch phrases. Jeff was standing in the front of the boat, he jumps to the rear of the boat, grabs the rod that was to my back and says something to the effect of FISH!

He battled the fish for quite sometime, it was the type of battle I love the most, that is when the angler gets so excited their knees knock. Short of the long we net the fish, Jeff says thats the biggest salmon I have ever caught. He was so pumped up!

Jeff you will be missed, Ken

I wish I would have thought as often of him, as I am now that he is gone.
You know what I mean?
I always liked Jeff, and when he wrote me, I appreciated it. But, now that he is gone, I wish I could write to him every day.
There is a lesson in that.

Just got back after a weekend of fishing -- *sigh*

I'm just sick... Jaws was a great guy as mentioned by many in this thread. I always enjoyed his posts, his wonderful use of sarcasm, humor and wit -- and appreciated the opportunities I had to interact with him in person.

Jeff, may you rest in Peace and we'll see you again someday.

As Jennie mentioned above, Life is just too **** short. Live it to the fullest -you just never know when your number is up.

RIP buddy......

I thought I would pass on that I talked with some of the family today and they are doing as well as can be expected. I have known Jeff and his family for many years and wish we could have hooked up to fish but timing did not work out to well. He was kind enough to let me and my son shoot dove on his property and then join him for a laugh after we were done. I was the fourth officer on scene and although it was hard for me it helped the family knowing that a friend was there to help communicate. I will pass on to the family all your thoughts.

Wow how sad, jeff helped me out back in 2007 when i posted a need for a generater to take to the coast for my family after a big storm, never met me before but offered it up no problem, got to see his wonderfull farm and man cave, tight lines and easy limits.


Thank you for the info let his family know how much he is missed here....

Went to High School with Jeff. Always the class clown, had the coolest Firebird in school, always a smile on his face and a wisecrack to share. One of the good guys that left too soon.
