Square 6


JEFFERY THOMAS DISHMAN

The quilt square was designed by Jeffery’s best friend Marcus Clavier and was created by Marcus’ mother, Sylvia.

Each color and object was meaningful in Jeffery’s life.

Colors:

  • Green represents life which Jeffery enjoyed to its fullest.
  • Blue and gray represent the colors of the high school from where he graduated.  Jeffery enjoyed his high school years and his classmates immensely.
  • Blue and gold represent the colors of the high school where he was a soccer coach.  During his tenure as coach the team won the state championship.

Objects:

  • The soccer ball represents Jeffery’s favorite sport, one in which he participated and coached every chance he had.
  • The cross represents Jeffery’s deep faith in God.  He wore a cross on a chain around his neck at all times.
  • The masks of comedy and tragedy represent his life.  Jeffery had a great sense of humor and created a feeling of happiness with those around him. The masks are indicative of the season of his untimely tragic death.
  • The heart represents the love we had for Jeff and the joy and happiness that he brought to our lives.
