At the Oprah’s Master Class, Jeff revealed his mother prepared a remarkable and a touching gift for her three children when they turned 21, and it was a handwritten biography of their youth.

Every day, she would write in this journal. When each of her children turned 21, each of us was given a biography of our lives from our mother’s point of view, in her own hand. She would go through her journal and every time my name was mentioned, she would transcribe that... It’s wild to read my life from my mom’s point of view.

He also mentioned his mom always found time for everybody and managed to play for one hour with each child individually. She was so caring and loving!
