Mark and i worked together many years ago, at IBM. He was kind and funny, and was special enough to me that we have kept in touch over 20 years. I was very sad to hear of his passing. My thoughts are with all of his family and close friends. He will be missed.
He was truly special. His smile his laugh I was lucky to know him
I feel stunned and saddened by the news today of Mark Jeffers' passing. I've seen some very kind posts on FB, and all I can say is, I feel the same. Mark was constantly helping people with their dancing, but also helping people just get through life in many behind-the-scenes, unsung ways. Mark was in our original batch of instructors at Lexington Arthur Murray, and we had a lot of laughs teaching students, going on trips, Friday night parties, events, latin clubs, all of it. My thoughts go to his family. RIP Mark.
