Ed was born to David Lee and Esther Marie Jefferson on October 3, 1957 in Petersburg, TX. He was well known for his work at Med-Tech, Grande Communications and H.E.B, from where he retired after extensive medical issues. He was a faithful member of VLC for over 20 years. Ed lived life full of love and laughter. He believed in investing time in others. He never met a stranger and was an avid sports fan. Ed loved spending hours reminiscing on his glory days of high school and college football.
Ed’s walk with God was seen and felt by anyone he came in contact with. Through countless hospitalizations and doctor’s appointments Ed’s faith in God never wavered and he used those times to minister to others.
Ed is preceded in death by his father, David Lee Jefferson; brother, Larry “Ace” Jefferson; and sister, Vivian Marie Jefferson.
Ed leaves behind his devoted wife, Jennifer; his loving children, Alicia, Rochelle, Gavin and Caitlyn; grandchildren, Dominick and Chloe; his mother, Esther Jefferson of Waco; siblings, Vic (Jean) Glasker of Waco, Emmett of Lubbock, Fred (Karla) of Lewisville, Mary (Robert) Borowiec of Temple, David of Waco and Monte (Curtis) Cook of Waco as well as many adoring nieces, nephews and a host of friends.
