Jeffrey Michael Lambert entered eternal rest on Sunday, September 24, 2017, two days before his 38th birthday. Loving son of Karen and Danny Lambert, brother of Chrissy Lambert Mendel, brother-in-law of Audy Mendel and favorite “Uncle Bub” to Gia, Sami and Rocco Mendel. Grandson to Doris Lambert and the late Daniel Lambert, Sr., and Shirley Accardo and the late C. J. Accardo.

Cousin of Cameron and Sean Dunn, Brandon, Braedon, Stephanie, Brett, Keith, Alexa and Colin Accardo. Also survived by a host of extended family and numerous friends.Above all, FAMILY was the most important part of life to Jeffrey. Second, was his love of sports. He was an outstanding football, basketball and baseball player from the time he was a young boy at Cleary Playground. He attended Archbishop Rummel High School where he lettered in football and baseball. He continued to play baseball in Junior college at Delgado and Alabama Southern, where he led the country by hitting 24 homeruns in one season. He was a Junior college All-American, and that honor earned him a baseball scholarship to LSU, which was a lifetime dream of his. Jeffrey was also extremely proud of his Italian heritage. Most of his friends knew him as “Lambo.”Relatives and friends are invited to attend visitation on Thursday, September 28, 2017 from 9 am until 1pm at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Boulevard, followed by a Memorial Mass in the Chapel which will be celebrated by his past Archbishop Rummel spiritual director, Father Beau Charbonnet. Interment at Greenwood Cemetery.In lieu of flowers, Masses are preferred.Please visit and sign the family guestbook at
