Jeffery Herrington
The world lost a wonderful husband, father and friend when Jeffery Herrington passed away on the last day of 2018.
    Jeff's connections and friendships were global. His infectious good humor and spirit endeared him to everyone he met. Whether you knew him for a few weeks or the better part of five decades, he made you feel special.
    Jeff was a 1985 graduate of Edmund Burke Academy and a 1989 graduate of Georgia Southern College. His career included positions with Epworth-By-the-Sea, Georgia Southern, Statesboro Airport and most recently, he was a valued member of the Sea Island team, where he served as guest house manager.
    During his career at Sea Island, Jeff was the recipient of the Enriching Lives award on two occasions and was recognized as the 2017 Manager of the Year for the state of Georgia by the Georgia Hotel and Lodging Association.
    When he was not working, Jeff could often be found watching his beloved Georgia Southern Eagles play. The entire Eagle Nation will feel the void when Jeff isn't there opening day 2019 to issue his favorite piece of advice, "throw it to the tight-end."
    Jeff is survived by his wife, Jamie Herrington; his son, Jordan (Tayhlor) Herrington; a stepson, Dalton (Kenley) Pearce; his stepfather, Wayne Weddon; his siblings, Sheila Weddon Bonner, Michael Herrington and Steve Weddon; and brother-in-love, Bill (Betsy) Glisson.
    He was preceded in death by his mother, Sheila Weddon.
    When Jeff passed away, he was surrounded by his family and his beloved classmates from the class of 1985. This group of eight men, affectionately known among the wives as "the brotherhood", will continue to celebrate Jeff and their friendship by maintaining a 25-year tradition of an annual reunion known as "guys weekend."
    In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Jeff Herrington Memorial Fund, c/o Southeastern Bank, 15 Trade Street, Brunswick, GA 31525.
    The monies donated in Jeff's honor will be used to purchase a bench in his memory at Epworth by the Sea and will be donated to Georgia Southern Athletic Scholarship Fund.
    Donations may be made at the celebration of life service for those attending.
