Massey's dream overcomes health issues

 

Very few students graduate from high school thinking about pursuing a career in the mortuary business. Jeffrey Massey was no different than most.
 
His father, Jim Massey, worked for Exxon/Mobile and never stayed at one place more than three years. Jim’s family, wife Sharon, daughter Jamie, and son Jeffrey traveled wherever their father went.
 
In 1988 the Massey family went to Hague, Holland where Jeffrey started high school. During his senior year Jim was given a new project in the states but Jeffrey elected to stay if at all possible. Jim and Sharon made arrangements for Jeffrey to remain to finish his senior year in Hague and to stay with some friends that they had made.
