Jeff has been fortunate in his writing and editing career to have been acknowledged by organizations that he admires and respects. Jeff will never forget the first award from the New Jersey Press Association, Remembering the Messenger, Jazz legend Art Blakey and his small town Atlantic County digs. It was hs first year as an associate editor at ACW and it was the first of more than a dozen writing awards he's won (both nationally and in state) since. The latest was a particular honor when the Advocates for New Jersey History presented him with the prestigious 2013 Dwyer Award for outstanding achievement in journalism related to or supporting New Jersey History.
In 2014, he was honored by the Greater Atlantic City Jaycees and AC Weekly with a 10th Anniversary Top 40 Under 40 Distinguished Honoree award for his tireless work on the project for nearly a decade — honoring 400 people in the Atlantic City region.
