Jeffrey Thomas Bump was born on December 29, 1970, and grew up in Marshall, Minnesota, with his parents, Tom and Jean, and older brother, Chris. He spent his childhood playing outdoors which grew to form a deep passion for walleye fishing both in the summer months and through the ice.
Jeff also loved the solitude of bow hunting, and the comradery formed while pheasant hunting with his talented dog, Kimber. Jeff was baptized as an infant, received first communion, and was later confirmed at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Marshall. He was a devoted and loving son, who was very close to his parents and enjoyed special hobbies with each of them. His love of fishing and hunting were inspired by his father, a dedicated angler who never misses time on the water and always made sure to have a spot on the boat for his son.
A generosity of time, talent, and amazing walleye that we all have benefit from. His love of the outdoors also meant that he cherished his time with his mother in her amazing flower and vegetable gardens. Her Irises, tiger lilies, sedum, ornamental onion, annuals of every shade and hue fill Jeff’s backyard. He was a talented gardener who always took advice from his mother on what and when to plant.
