Jeffrey Christopher Najork, age 42, of Dallas, Texas passed away peacefully on December 23, 2017. Jeff was born November 17, 1975 in Austin, Texas. He moved to Dallas with his parents at the age of 4. He graduated from Duncanville High School in 1994 and received a BBA in Business from Texas Tech University in 1999.
Jeff is survived by his daughters Jade Camryn and Jemma Claire Najork, his parents Chris and Linda Najork, his brother Daniel Najork and wife Vivien, and his former wife Terra Waldrum Najork. He is also survived by his grandfather Jack Najork, aunts, uncles and many cousins, plus many, many friends.
Jeff loved his daughters deeply, and was happiest spending time with them and sharing his joy in them with family and friends. He was so proud of his baby girls.
Jeff was passionate about sports, his family, his friends, and his dogs. He was a natural athlete. He started skiing with the family at age 4 and was roaring down the double blacks by age 12. He loved to play anything that involved a ball, but particularly soccer and, like his Dad, baseball. He excelled in soccer for his high school varsity, Dallas Premier League and Dallas Cup. He carried his passion for baseball into a career as General Manager of the Duncanville Deputies of the Texas Collegiate League. He later worked in pharmaceutical sales, where his outgoing personality and quick wit were valued by his colleagues.
Jeff's generosity and warmth were immediately apparent to all who met him. He was loved by all who knew him and will be greatly missed. He is now asleep in Jesus!
Visitation will take place on Thursday, December 28th from 6pm until 8pm at Sparkman Hillcrest Funeral Home. The funeral services will take place on Friday, December 29th at 12pm in the Northwest Highway Chapel at Sparkman Hillcrest Funeral Home.
