Resided in: San Clemente, California
Jeffrey Hooper, 68, of San Clemente, California, passed away on July 6, 2021 at his home. He was surrounded by his wife, Margi, and his daughters, Kim and Ashley.
Jeff was born on October 25, 1952 to Grev and Lu Hooper. He graduated from Granada Hills High School, where he was a star baseball pitcher. He went on to play minor league baseball with the Minnesota Twins organization. His baseball career was cut short by a shoulder injury, which inspired him to pursue a career in physical therapy.
Jeff met his wife, Margi, in physical therapy school and they were married on January 7, 1978. Their first daughter, Kimberly, was born on October 27, 1979. Less than two years later, on July 5, 1981, their second daughter, Ashley, was born.
Jeff and Margi lived in the San Fernando Valley for much of their life before retiring from their respective physical therapy practices and moving to Orange County. Jeff was an avid golfer and continued to play until he was diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease in April 2021.
Jeff was predeceased by his parents, Grev and Lu, and he is survived by Margi, Kim, Ashley, and his brother, Rick. He will be remembered as a kind, loyal, playful, hardworking, and dependable father, husband, brother, and friend.
