Due to injuries he incurred as a result of a home fire, Jeffrey Lynn “Jeff” Thomas, Jr., 32, of Osage, passed away on Thursday, April 27, 2023.
Jeff was the son of Morgantown residents Kelly Ann Heslop and Jeffrey Lynn Thomas, Sr., and was born on March 8, 1991.
In addition to his parents, survivors include his daughter Jalayah Nichole Thomas; his siblings Natasha Alicia Thomas, Justin Lynn Thomas, Tru-Shawn Lynndale Thomas, Jamal Maurice Thomas, and Janessa Lauren Thomas; his nieces and nephews A’Mare, Rayauna, Ramier, Jaeden, Kanaan, and Amaya; his grandmothers Patricia Ann Thomas and Katherine Mary Heslop; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and cherished friends.
John Thomas, Jr. and Donald Oliver Heslop, Jeff’s grandparents, died before him.
To Jeff, family was of utmost importance. What he was doing with them didn’t really matter; the important thing was that he was there, in their company. He adored kids, and they always seemed to want to be around him.
On Saturday, May 6, 2023, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, family and friends are welcome to gather at Kingdom: A Community Church, 540 Fairmont Rd., Westover, to celebrate Jeff’s life and legacy.
