Jeff was born November 20, 1965, to Harold and Mary (Wasson) Thompson in Menomonie, Wisconsin. He grew up in Gilman Township and attended Spring Valley Schools. He graduated with the Class of 1984.
After high school, Jeff farmed for a couple of years with his dad. He then entered the U.S. Army and served for 2 years where he received multiple honors. When he returned home, he continued his education at UW-River Falls and then Chippewa-Valley Vo-Tech where he studied carpentry.
Jeff worked for Xcel at Red Wing for several years. He also worked as a mason for Dakota Rhodes for about 15 years. He was also a valued Construction Laborers Union Local 563 journeyman member.

He was loved by all of his teammates.
