In life, like in football, the easy route is rarely an option.

Jeff Wesley Memorial
In memory of Jeff Wesley, with great  appreciation for his commitment as a long time Referee, friend and great contributor to our River Valley Youth Football League.  Thank you to the Wesley Family! 

Also in honor of Jeff, all teams will be wearing a JW sticker on their helmets in the 2011 season!

Dear River Valley Youth Football League:

I am beyond touched and at a sincere loss of words on the tribute that your organization did for my Dad, Jeff Wesley.

As his oldest daughter, I know how much this would have meant to him and how much he loved officiating youth football games. 

Your League's love and generosity is a welcome support to my family and I as we continue to feel my Dad's loss.

Thank you for thinking of him in such a meaningful way!

Best of luck to you in your upcoming season.  We are rooting for you.

In gratitude,
Nadeja Wesley
