Jeff and his wife, Bethann, live near Sunbury. They are big supporters of Penn State and its football program…Go State! They also enjoy the outdoors. A great day would be hiking, biking, kayaking, going to the shooting range and then heading to a local brewery to relax.
The Shaffers also love to travel both domestically and around the globe.
