Jeffrey “Jeff” J. Grossman, 58, of Pickerington, passed away on July 28, 2020 due to complications from Covid-19. Jeff was born on July 8, 1962 in Columbus, Ohio. He was a proud graduate of Gahanna Lincoln High School Class of 1980. He worked for many years as a Research and Development Chemist for Akzo-Nobel Coatings. Jeff enjoyed collecting superhero comics, sports memorabilia, and music. He was a lover of 80’s Rock and was a collector of all music genres. He enjoyed live music and concerts, especially Van Halen and Rick Emmit of Triumph. Jeff was a musician himself who played guitar at the St. Thomas More Newman Center where he and Anne met. He enjoyed jamming on his electric guitar at home and most recently returned to playing his acoustic at Church. He loved his OSU Buckeyes, the Green Bay Packers, and the Minnesota Twins, but most of all, the light of his life was his grandkids and the time he had with them. Jeff was fond of attending their sporting events and activities, and will be missed greatly.
