In Memory of Jeff Papenfus
On July 30, 2011, NEXT co-founder, entrepreneur, community leader, outdoor enthusiast, and husband Jeff Papenfus passed away unexpectedly while doing something he greatly enjoyed: mountain biking. His passing was a shock to the family of entrepreneurs here and his leadership and commitment to action is greatly missed. However, Jeff’s infectious smile and entrepreneurial spirit lives on in the work of NEXT and the hard work and dedication of the many entrepreneurs he touched through the years.
