It is with a heavy heart that I must write this letter to all of you. In the very early hours of January 1st 2013, Jeff Herle, one of our recent Beta Sigma Alumni was struck and killed by a car on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu leaving a New Years Eve Celebration. We do not know the details of how this tragedy occurred other than the very little that has been given to us by the authorities.
Jeff was a member of the Fall of 2007 Pledge Class at Beta Sigma and has been an important part of this fraternity ever since. Jeff was full of life and always had a smile on his face, always trying to be the life of the party, and everyones friend. “You gotta want it”, his signature phrase, will forever be ingrained in our memories because of his simple care-free antics that made him a popular figure amongst all of the fraters in TKE.
There will be two memorial events held in Jeff’s Honor this week, We would like as many Beta Sigma TKE’s in Attendance as possible to show how much he meant to this fraternity that we all love. The information for these events is listed Below.
Vigil: Wednesday January 9th, 7:30pm at American Martyrs Church in Manhattan Beach. The family requests that we were something very “Jeffrey-like”, aka lots of colors, USC gear, bow ties, or whatever you feel like reminds you of him.
Funeral: Thursday 10am at St. John’s the Baptist Church in Baldwin Park. We ask that you wear TKE Formal Attire, Blue Blazer, Khaki Pants, Red Tie, and TKE Pin.
Please take a few minutes to reflect on the relationships you have with your family, your friends, and yourself, and truly cherish every moment you have. I love you all. Rest In Peace Jeff Herle.
Yours in the Bond,
Beta Sigma 1250
