Jeffrey graduated from Elkins High School in 1979 and was a self-taught small engine mechanic. He graciously moved to North Carolina three years ago to help his sister plan and build the L. Cpl David L. Cosner, USMC Outdoor Recreation Reserve. He enjoyed meticulously grooming the landscape and repairing machinery on the “Cosner Reserve” in Pelham, North Carolina.

Jeffrey’s wish was to be cremated and have his ashes scattered in the flower fields at the Cosner Reserve in Pelham, North Carolina. This will take place in the spring.

The Omega Funeral Home and Crematory of Burlington, North Carolina have been entrusted with the arrangements for Jeffrey Aaron Cosner.
