Jeff was born in Santa Clara, California. He grew up in Sunnyvale and moved to Chico in 2009. Jeff made friends everywhere he went. He was very outgoing and could find commonality with everyone, whether 1 year old or 100 years old. His adventurous spirit took him to the East coast and back to the West coast. He was a gifted craftsman, a sweet sole who would help anyone. His proudest accomplishments were his 3 children, whom he loved with his whole being. He held his friends close to his heart.
Jeff is survived by his daughters Adriana and Maryjane and son, Jesse. Also survived by his mom, Jane Britten; father, Jim Tyler and stepfather Ken Britten; his sister, Stephanie Panighetti; brother-in-law, Mark Panighetti; nieces, Megan and Kate; and his nephew, Ryan.
We are honoring and memorializing him privately.
