    Jeffrey was a key forum member helping many people on the EVGA forum and his expertise of N series motherboards was unmatched. Whenever someone needed help he was always there for them. I will miss his witty remarks and his 125 Blue Ribbons for helping others on the EVGA forum is a testimonial for everyone trying to help another human being. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Jeffrey. With sincere condolences, Robert Johnson, volunteer EVGA moderator for the EVGA Forums

    This news truly saddens me. Yet I rejoice for I know that he and I shared a common faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that he is present with Him in heaven even now. I met Jeffrey through a computer forum where he spent his time trying to help others to enjoy their computers as much as he did. His influence reached out across the world through this medium and I know many will miss him.

    My deepest condolences to all the Hamilton family and the friends of Jeffrey. I did not know him personally, but I was witness to his kindness and how helpful he was to members of the EVGA forums. Some will say it’s just a forum, but he made a difference and we are all better for having him be even a small part of our lives. We will miss you Jeffrey, God bless.

  15. Ralph Kite says:

    My condolences to the family. I was a big fan of some of the same music that Jeff was and attended several concerts with Jeff when we were younger. He was always very enthusiastic in his appreciation of the bands we saw. In particular I remember seeing U2 with you in Phoenix,AZ. and I still cannot listen to a U2 song without thinking of you. I love you like a brother and I know the world is a lesser place without you. There are a lot of great artists in heaven and I am sure you are enjoying the music. Rock on Jeff. You remain in my heart forever and in our music.

    • Julie says:


      Thanks for the kind words about Jeff. Brought tears for me. I keep hearing so many songs that I remember Jeff loved. Brings tears & also many smiles. I keep thinking of all the times he & I have shared through our lives & loving music along the way. Thanks for thinking of us. I will miss him dearly.

    I’m so very sorry to hear of Jeffrey’s passing and will keep the family in my prayers. Jeff will also be missed by his online friends at EVGA and many people there will be Folding in his honor this Friday (March 9th). It is our special way to honor those that have meant so much to the Folding@Home community and our way to say that we cared for him too. He is with the Lord now and we trust that he is still Folding with us to find cures for the world. The measure of a man is lastly that of what he leaves behind. Jeffrey left many warm memories and friendship that reached into the world around him. Fold-on my friend…

  17. Doug Adams (hoserx) says:

    Jeffrey was a fantastic individual who was selfless when it came to helping people with their problems no matter how small or trivial they may have been. His actions were not unnoticed, and while he’ll be sorely missed on the EVGA forums, he won’t be forgotten. I extend my sympathy to his family and friends.

    Although I never met you, I feel as if i did… It is obvious that you have helped and touched many individuals throughout the world… Including myself… Once we meet up again in a few years, we will build the most awesome rig on the planet!!! God hasn’t even invented this rig yet!! :) Rest in peace bud… we will all miss you… See you in the forums…

    Thanks for all your contributions….

  22. Robert (aka VistaHead) says:

    I met Jeffreyham a few years ago on the EVGA forum when he had just purchased a new board & was having problems, and I offered my assistance. We have had numerous conversations through the personal message feature of the forum since then. I am a few years older than him, and he reminds me of me. He was straight and to the point, sometimes even blunt, but would help anyone with an issue until they resolved it…regardless of the amount of time that it took. If he didn’t know the answer, he would research it and get back to the individual. I personally will miss reading his postings on the forums, and the exchanges between he and I. Rest in peace, my Brother.

  23. Mark Wheeler says:

    I very kind person who dedicated some of his time to help others with a hobby that is shared by many. I, along with many at EVGA will miss you and your kindness. May God be with you….


  24. Jonathan Twitchin aka Sleinous says:

    Jeffrey’s knowledge in computers really was outstanding as was his constant aim to help others on the forums as much as possible. I am therefore sure that he will be greatly missed over at the EVGA Forums but know that he is now in a peaceful place. This Friday will be a folding day in memory of Jeff. My thoughts go out to the friends and family.

    My prayers go out to Jeff’s family and friends in this difficult time. It’s never easy when a loved one leaves us, even more so when the person is as loved as Jeff.

    He was a valued member over at EVGA and will be missed dearly. His knowledge and willingness to share were greatly appreciated and it was inspirational to many.

    I’m folding for you today buddy, because I know you’d be doing the same for me. Enjoy the ride on that big rig in the sky and keep an eye out for us sinners down here.


  32. Matt aka "warthorn" says:

    Jeffrey was somebody you could relate to… a guy who loved to help other people out in whatever way he knew. It is sad to see him pass. Wishing his family all the best in this tough time.

  33. Robert (aka VistaHead) says:

    I met Jeffrey a few years ago on the EVGA forums after he had purchased a motherboard that he was having problems with, and I offered my assistance. Over the years he and I have conversed both on the forum and through the private message feature of the forum. I am a few years older then him, but he reminded me of me….to the point and direct. Jeffrey would go out of his way to assist fellow forum members. If he didn’t know the answer, he would research it and get back to the individual. I am truly shocked and saddened by his passing. I offer a prayer for his family members and friends. Rest in peace, my Brother.

  34. BlackArtz5133937 says:

    You will be missed on the forums @ EVGA. Thanks for the great discussions on the forums as well. Wish the family the best.

    Jeff was a nice guy on the forums. He will be missed and it will not be the same without him. My condolence to the family.

  36. Nathan Davis (6dracing) says:

    Thoughts and prayers to all his family and friends. He was deeply loved on EVGA forums.

  37. YerBuddy says:

    My sincere condolences to his family. Jeff was a special person who gave of his time and knowledge. I will miss him, but take with me great memories of a great man. Rest in peace Brother!

  38. Monty H. says:

    It has taken me a while to accept this although I know Jeff is in a better place. Myself, my wife, and members of churches in Tampa and New Jersey had Jeff in constant prayers for many months prior to his passing. Jeff held a deep faith in his Lord and Savior, a faith he frequently spoke of and a love for God which would shine in every word. Knowing this it is no wonder that the Lord would want Jeffrey with him in his kingdom of Heaven.

    Jeff touched my life in many ways, I will miss him here on this earth but look forward to the day when we can again meet in Gods kingdom. Jeff was the kind of friend that is rare and true to the friendships he made.

    Jeffrey was much more than a computer guru who helped many. He was a wonderful person who lived his child hood dream of trucking and gave it up to make sure others would not be harmed from his being on the road. Jeffrey refused to sit idle and found ways to continue to contribute, without compensation, because for Jeff the real meaning of brotherhood was being kind and of service to those who could benefit from his work.

    To Jeffrie’s family and friends I offer my heartfelt condolences and urge you to celebrate Jeffreys entry into the Kingdom of God. I know Jeff would want us all to overcome our sadness after his passing and remember the good times while he was with us. May God be with Jeff’s family and friends in his eternity of life with his Lord and savior.

    After a long hiatus (VERY long), I returned to the eVGA forums to see that one of my very favorite members had passed away….I’m sorry for the late entry, but I will miss Jeff and his
    easy wit and help on the forums.

    A very very wonderful person who I NEVER heard an unkind word from.

    All that I can say has been said by others, but know I will say a prayer for him and his family and will hold him in my thoughts.

  40. David Bland (Julian_Moore_III) says:

    I just returned to the forum to find out that Jeffrey Hamilton (jeffreyham) has passed away, I was saddened deeply by this and was brought to tears. Jeffreyham was a very generous man and very appreciated on the boards and he will be missed.

  41. Robert Johnson says:

    We were talking about Jeffrey today on the forum mentioning his birthday and his passing. His presence is still felt on the EVGA forums and we continue to miss him.
