Jeffrey P. Swanson, of Lombard, passed away suddenly, yet peacefully, at the age of 62. He is survived by his mother Patricia Swanson, an older sister, younger sister Maggie (Scott) Stoltz, and his brother Daniel. He was preceded in death by his father Clifford.
Jeffery was born in Chicago and raised in Lombard. From a young age, Jeff was very active in sports, where he formed many lifelong friendships. After graduating from Glenbard East in Lombard, Jeff attended the University of Illinois (Urbana/Champaign) and received his bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering.
After graduation, Jeff moved to Phoenix, Arizona to start his career as a Sales Engineer. His exuberant sales drive landed him in Huntington Beach, California, selling for Motorola as well as Harris Semiconductor. Jeff eventually transitioned into the real estate field, which he enjoyed very much. Many years later, while working in the home mortgage and investment field, Jeff returned to calling Phoenix home.
Jeff enjoyed movies and was an avid reader who often shared books he found insightful. Jeff loved sports, and regardless of where he lived, his allegiance to the Chicago Cubs never faltered.
Several years back, Jeff returned to Lombard to help with family, and selflessly cared for his mother. If you were fortunate enough to have met Jeff, you would know he had a tremendous sense of humor and a big heart.
He was a kind soul and was always happy to give you his smile if yours was missing. Jeff was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
A memorial service is planned for August 27. For more info, call 630-832-4161.
