In 2018, Jeffery became an ordained minister of the New Life of Community Church of God in Christ in Ontario, CA. He often spent time volunteering on Skid Row in Los Angeles and was currently working as a marriage and family counselor. His next venture was to provide counseling to veterans and those struggling with drugs. Jeffery also loved to travel. He and his partner, Pam Brown, traveled regularly, and together, they truly lived life to its fullest.
