About Jeffrey Trickett
Jeff was an outstanding young man, who exhibited well-rounded balance and achieved excellence in all he attempted - whether academics, athletics or the arts. Whether on the basketball court, in class, or in the band, Jeff always had a heart warming laugh, dedicated work ethic, and competitive instinct. His example was such that he inspired those around him to be better people, and in all ways he truly left his school greater, better and more beautiful than he found it.
