Jeck was an honor student at Baker University in Baldwin, Kansas where he was studying pre-med.

"He was a fun loving goofy kind of kid," says a former classmate, Dylan Clay.  "He never had a frown on his face, always smiling and always happy.  He never let life throw him down.  He was always in a good mood."
