Jeffrey Lynn Mashburn was born December 12, 1965, in Litchfield, Minnesota to Bobbie Lee and Shirley (Anderson) Mashburn. Jeff was baptized and confirmed at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Cokato. As the son of a career Air Force veteran, Jeff had the opportunity to travel, living in Colorado, England, Germany, New York, Alabama, and Colorado (again), before finally moving back to Cokato.

As a result of this, Jeff went to several schools before attending and graduating from Dassel-Cokato High School in 1983. While in high school, Jeff enjoyed participating on the tennis and speech teams, writing for the school newspaper, and performing in school plays. Jeff also had an interest in photography.

Following high school, Jeff attended St. Cloud State University for a year. After that, he enlisted in the United States Navy and served on the USS Manitowoc for four years. During this time, Jeff met and married Cindy Applegate.

After leaving the Navy, the couple made their home in Voorhees, New Jersey. Soon after, a son Charles Jeffrey (CJ) was born. Jeff enjoyed spending time with CJ, volunteering with the Cub Scouts, fishing from ocean beaches and piers, and building models.

Jeff was primarily employed as a mortgage loan officer for several companies. Jeff enjoyed reading and writing poetry, working on puzzles, and cooking – often experimenting and perfecting his recipes. Jeff was also very fond of dogs.

Jeff passed away at North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale, Minnesota on September 7, 2019. He was 53 years old.
