Derek Jeffrey (4-16-94) - Derek was in the Kutztown paper was "Student of the Month" for December of 2004.  In the summer of 2007, Derek had surgery on his knee, and has been rehabbing it to be ready for basketball.  Unfortunately he had to have surgery again in early 2008 to remove two tacks that didn't disolved from the first surgery.  As a result he wasn't able to play ball for school.  He was able to finally get out on a field again Summer 2008 when he played for Fleetwood Junior Legion.

Morgan Renee and Jason Scott (twins born 4-19-99) -
Per Debbie 8/26/08, "Morgan was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in May of 08. She is doing well and will hopefully be going on the insulin pump by may of 09. She is now giving herself 4 shots a day so the pump will be a welcome relief. Jason is great, crazy as always. He is a funny boy and is following in big brother's footsteps by playing baseball."
Pets: I assume this dog was named after legendary Eagles coach Buddy Ryan...Buddy, a dog who was adopted on Easter of 2005

The Petersens used to have three cats named Jazzy, Speedy and Peachy.  (Please note that the initials of the three cats are the same as Jeff's initials!) 
All three had to be given away because Derek started developing allergies.  Prior to that they used to have 1 gigantic cat named "Pudge" who was put to sleep around 2001.
Nicknames: J-Pa
Exciting Things
Since H.S.:
If Jeff had time to fill out his 10-year reunion survey he probably would've written things like, "Hung out with Chris Malinowski a few times. I've even had him over to my house on my birthday. I played Softball with Chris for about 5 years. Chris was even at my wedding - I'm sure you're all jealous, but I can't help it, I like Chris better than all of you. Oh, yeah, and I got married and had a kid. That was pretty cool, too."
Future Career: Jeff listed "Business" as his future career path in the senior yearbook.
Senior Memories (Copied directly from the Senior Yearbook):
Great times with D.M., L.P., E.S., R.B., at H.S. ... Where's Puma University? ... Dec. 3, 1983 ... Poker Night ... Last one in ... Midnight swims ... assume the position

Which is a better title: "Nice Hair, Guys!" or "Didn't they feed you in high school"?

Jeff Petersen went to see Monsters Inc the day before I posted this picture!

Chris Mal Notes:
Jeff was voted the "Most Athletic" male in the MPHS Class of '86.  He was the only freshman to make the varsity baseball team, and batted .296 that year.

Wanna see something funny? Check out Page 3 of our senior yearbook - Jeff apparently wasn't paying attention when the 4th grade class picture was taken.

Jeff and I played Softball together from 1993 thru 1999 when Jeff's knees gave out.  Jeff ranked 7th on our Sunday team's "All-Time Innings Played" list.

Jeff is still a HUGE St.Louis Cardinals and St.Louis Rams fan - and let it be known that he was a Rams fan LONG before the days of Kurt Warner.

Jeff and Derek Petersen had the seats next to us
Jeff once picked up Dave Knorr and threw him 10 feet during gym class.

Jeff used a bunch of the tickets from my Phillies Sunday season ticket package in 2003, and has tickets for 3 games in 2004.  This year, however, I have 4 seats.  On 4/18/04, Jeff and his oldest son Derek were at the game with me and my Dad.  The picture to the left of from that game.  CLICK HERE for more info and some great pictures that I took during the game.

 Great Adventure '88

Genesis....was this from the Invisible Touch tour?

Great Adventure has never been the same.

I don't think I'd want to hug these four after a flume ride.

This is me invading Jeff's personal space.

He seems to have
an Invisible Touch?

I'm not sure what this was about.  The picture didn't have a caption.  Was this aluminum foil crucifix class?
