Jeffrey Inalegwu Ejeh, 27, of Menasha, WI, born June 22, 1989, in Kaduna, Nigeria, passed away Wednesday, February 15, 2017, at his residence.
Jeff was taking a break from Fox Valley Technical College where he was studying web development and design, in order to focus full-time on producing music. Jeff learned to produce music while working at the Boys and Girls Club of Appleton, where he spent many years fostering a love for music in all of the children he was able to work with. Recognizing the healing power of music, Jeff was able to support many in their need for self-expression. In his home apartment studio, Jeff worked with and inspired artists of all ages and genres to record and to keep making music, even teaching others how to produce.

Zion, IL); his Great Uncle Retired Captain Edward Sule-Ejeh and Aunts Margaret and Elizabeth (Port Harcourt, Nigeria) and their children who raised him the first half of his life; his biological mother Christina Amina-Yusuf; his Paternal Grandmother Agnes Elaipu Inyankana (Opaha, Nigeria); Sister Nisaa Grant (Mt.
