Jeffery Staten Obituary

Jeffery Allen Staten passed away and entered the arms of Christ on March 4, 2023. Jeff leaves behind his fiancé, Blue Romero; two children, Jerilynn and Jeffery; parents, Reid Staten and Lisa Gardner; step-parents, Steve Gardner and Laura Booth, and siblings, Lindsey Booth, Amanda Gardner, Billy Gardner, and Sarah Staten. Jeff was preceded in death by his big brother, Daniel and grandparents Chester and Sharon Hacker and Frank and Margaret Staten. Jeff also leaves behind amazing aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends who all loved him very much.

Jeff was born in San Diego California February 11, 1988 and had a true love for his home town especially their sports teams the San Diego Padres and Chargers. Jeff was a curious child with an abundance of energy and love. Jeff loved sports and excelled at baseball, football and other numerous sports but baseball was his true passion. Jeff attended Mission Bay High School. Jeff loved growing up surrounded by his large family. Jeff's childhood was filled with spending time with his numerous cousins and friends. Jeff especially enjoyed hanging out with his brother, Daniel, cousin, Tommy, and friend, Chad. Whether they were riding bikes, playing in the fort on the side of his grandmother’s house, running around the canyon, paint balling, riding motorcycles and quads in the desert or whatever other mischievous adventures they could get into Jeff was usually at the front. Jeff also loved to play jokes and usually his sisters and brothers were at the top of his recipient list. He loved his siblings deeply and loved talking with all of them. He was genuinely interested in their activities and watching them thrive.

Jeff was a protective son and loved his parents deeply. Their relationships were filled with many memories. Jeff and his dad shared their love of sports and his dad coached many of his sports teams growing up. If he wasn’t coaching he was on the side lines cheering him on and maybe yelling at the ump. Jeff and his dad loved to watch sports together. They had many special moments, from teaching him to throw a ball or ride his first bike, sitting in the passenger's seat as he learned to drive, and endless long talks, and sometimes even some arguments. Jeff and his mom enjoyed quality time together. Whether that was going on surprise dates on the weekends or spending time at the baseball fields watching Jeff play sports, his mom was always there to support Jeff in anything he chose to do. Jeff was persistent over the years in trying to teach his mom how to bet on sports games which ended up in suckering his mom out of money, and many talks about the Lord and life’s trials. Jeff valued the relationships he had with his parents and step-parents.

Jeff found a love for God while participating in a program at Victory Outreach. This was a proud moment for him. He loved learning and growing in his faith.

If we were able to ask Jeff what his biggest accomplishment was he would say it was being a father. Jeff loved his children and loved spending time with them. Whether it was playing in the mud, throwing a football, jumping on the trampoline, or Sunday fun day with his family, Jeff loved to spend time with his children and fiancé. He felt Blessed to be a father and his children were the light of his life. Jeff was so proud of his children. He loved watching Jeffery play football and Jerilynn run track. Jeff was so proud of all of their accomplishments at school. Jeff shared with them his love of God and worked to instill faith into their everyday lives. Jeff took much pride in being a father.


Jeff…always on our team and in our hearts.
