Jeffrey David Sterne, 33, beloved son of Mark and Cari Sterne and older brother to Ryan, Michael, and Michael’s wife, Michelle, passed away peacefully Sunday after a 3-1/2 year battle with kidney cancer. Jeff recently achieved his dream job as an Enforcement Officer at the US Treasury and demonstrated tremendous passion for music, guitars, and government policy. Jeff possessed a wealth of knowledge for his interests and could speak passionately about almost any topic related to music, politics, or history. Jeff was extremely compassionate, with an uncanny ability to see multiple perspectives and find common ground. Jeff was incredibly kind and treated every person with care. Jeff was the first grandchild of his four loving grandparents, Martin and Shelley Shore of Del Ray Beach, FL and Judilee Tash Sterne and the late Harold Sterne of Sarasota, FL; the oldest nephew of 5 loving aunts and uncles, role model to 9 cousins, and proud dog-father to Loki. Throughout Jeff’s battle, he remained incredibly giving, and no matter the challenges he faced, his wishes were to support the fight against Kidney Cancer. Donations can be made in his memory to Kidney Cancer research at Chapel service Thursday 2:30 PM at Shalom Memorial Funeral Home, 1700 W. Rand Road, Arlington Heights. Interment Shalom Memorial Park.
