Jeff joined the order shortly after the recent passings of his mother, Burma Wodek, and his stepfather, Ken Wodek. And he has since often asked a fellow member of the Saturday 5:30 choir, Tom Greco: “Do you think my mom and Ken are proud of me?” We’re sure they are. Jeff wasted little time in adding his major degree in late June. He was born in Chicago but moved to North Texas with his family at a young age. Jeff is a veteran of the Special Olympics as both a participant and a coach in multiple sports, including track and soccer. He lives in Duncanville often walks to Mass. He worked 15 years at Albertsons until about five years ago and now works at a workshop in Arlington.
