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.

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.
