Jeffrey B. Ameer, 60, of Medina passed away at his home Thursday, October 25, 2012 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born July 17, 1952 in Yonkers, New York to the late Benjamin and Shirley Ameer. Jeff graduated from Yonkers High School, received his Bachelors of Education from the State University of New York at Cortland and his Masters of Education from the University of Nebraska. Jeff went on to teach physical education at the University of Texas, served as Athletic Director, teacher and coach in Kingsville, Texas and also taught and coached at Mt. Vernon University in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. He concluded his teaching career at Claggett Middle School in Medina, Ohio where he taught physical education and health for twenty-four years. Jeff was a devoted advocate for teachers, serving on the Medina City Teacher's Association. He also served for many years as the varsity head coach for Medina boys soccer and as both assistant and head coach for Medina girls and boys tennis teams. Jeff experienced much joy in positively impacting the lives of his students, athletes, and fellow teachers. His love for athletics carried over into his free time as he enjoyed running, tennis, and basketball. Jeff was also a board game enthusiast. However his greatest joy, transcending all others, was spending time with family. Whether it was attending a Broadway play with his sister, cheering on his sons at wrestling meets and soccer games, sitting front row at his daughter's performances, or traveling across the country and abroad with his wife, Jeff was most content while in the company of his family. Jeff's wife and children further recognize that in addition to endless caring and support, he proved his love for them in being a wise, reliable, and generous provider. Jeff is survived by his wife of 35 years, Connie (Warren), daughter Jennifer (Farrell, 31), sons Matthew (29) and Michael (27), sister Marlene (McLaughlin), and many loving extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Benjamin and Shirley Ameer, sister Charlene, and mother and father in law, Ivan and Elaine Warren.
