I worked with Jeff at the Marathon County Sheriff's Dept. and he was a really great man. Jeff was what the community looks for in a law enforcement officer; honest, integrity, fair, committed, empathetic, thorough, and so much more.

I responded to numerous calls for service with Jeff and knew I was getting one of the best Deputies in the department to work with.

I would like to extend my condolences to his family and remind them Jeff is still in our hearts and not forgotten. Also, to his children, please know that your father was really a great man, Deputy, and father. On many occasions when we talked about family, Jeff would always beam proudly when discussing his wife and children like all extremely proud fathers and husbands do.

May you rest in peace Deputy Jeffrey Sheets.
