I’ve known Jeff for over 20 years…he was a kind gentle soul who genuinely cared for others… and always took the time to make that known…I remember one day after I moved my 80 year old dad here in 2015… now my dad is as born raised and lived in NY his whole life… he was right outta the sopranos … Italian who always complained about the food down here,,lol I told Jef about him and he said bring him to 58 tomorrow so I did…Jeff cooked him a special meal and sat with my dad for the entire dinner laughing and jokin … I never seen my dad enjoy an evening more… dad was hooked …not cause the food was awesome …which it was but because of this man .:dad passed the following year… I’ll miss you Jeff …god speed my friend

So sorry to hear about Jeff’s passing. He and Dutch would come into my shop Bravos Frozen Custard and use the bench in the store to measure Benjamin growth. I have so many fond memories of the two of them. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Going back to our days in Florida, food distribution the bagel shop to the 59 Deli. I will miss our weekly conversation about the delicatessen business, very few people I could share those stories with. Good memories I will miss you. Russ

Super Mensch. A Gutte Neshuma. Spoke with him about my hometown of North Miami Beach where he would visit his grandmother from time to time, eating at Pumperniks, Wolfies, and Corkys during his stays. One of a kind, and will be terribly missed. May his memory always be a blessing.

Shocked and so sorry to hear this!
Joe was a great man with a passion to bring the authentic New York deli experience to Virginia Beach.
He succeeded wildly beyond my expectations as a New Yorker.
 Jeff always had a good-natured smile and loved to schmooze with his customers.
He will be sorely missed.
May he rest in peace.

You may be gone but you will never be forgotten. You left a huge mark on the Tidewater area and no one will ever be able to “fill your shoes.” RIP Jeff, go fly with the angels and Benjamin.
