Jeffrey was born on February 3, 1960 in Hennepin County Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Amelia Josephine (Dubois) and John Baptist Lenoir.

With a warm smile on his face and a heart filled with compassion, Jeffrey touched the lives of those he encountered along the way. Known for his polite nature, he never failed to express gratitude to those who offered him a lift during his travels.
