Jeff was the son of Clement & Evelyn Roggenback. He was a man whose life was marked by radical commitment to Jesus and His command to Go and Make Disciples of All Nations. He impacted lives all over the world. He spent time doing ministry in The U.S., The Philippines, Thailand, Nepal, China, India, and Tibet. He and his wife were serving as missionaries to the Karen, a people group in the border of Thailand and Myanmar. They worked with YWAM in Maesot, Thailand.
He was a man of deep integrity, and the whole family were living sacrificial lives serving the Lord. They had one beautiful 12 year old daughter named Jasmine. Jeff’s motto was found in Phil 1:21 – “For to me to live is Christ to die is gain.”
in 2014, Jeff, his wife Jiin, and their daughter Jasmine were all killed when their car was in a head on collision with an 18 wheeler truck in Northern Thailand.
Although filled with grief and loss, Jeffs father said: “Jeff and his family did everything together, they prayed together, they ate together, they traveled together, they ministered together so I am so happy that God took them together.”
