He runs each year in honor of his mother Connie who past away from Alzheimer’s May 28th 2013. He is member in good standing with Canadian Actors Equity Association and ACTRA. In 1998, Jeff was nominated for Entrepreneur of the Year by the Hamilton & District Chamber of Commerce.

Jeff’s love for horses has been with him all throughout his life. He has competed in Hunter/Jumper and Steeple-chasing but his greatest riding enjoyment remains fox hunting where he is a Hunt Master of the Wellington Waterloo Hunt. His dream was to have a premium property for his horses to reside in and with Sweetgrass Equestrian that dream is now a reality. Jeff and Tiffany treat all their horses like family members and this is evident to all who visit their exquisite property. The care they provide starts with the premium hay they supply to their own horses and have now made available to a further reach with their business Canadian Hay Distributors.
