According to this obituary, Jeffrey Quello died on April 23, 2022. He loved the Green Bay Packers, rock ‘n roll music, tattoos, motorcycles, and his family. For over 30 years he was sober and part of the NA/AA Recovery Community, which I find very commendable. However, while he lived a drug and alcohol free life, he was also free from the Covid-19 vaccine.
Jeffrey is similar to many others featured on SAV. He hates Fauci and vaccines, reposts stuff from Ted Nugent, has a goatee...you know the drill by now.
Someone should have told Jeffrey how viruses mutate. If only there was a way to stop them!?! Right?
The anti-Fauci memes:
Maybe some research outside of FB memes, Ted Nugent's FB page, and Fox and OAN news would help him understand why this is wrong.
Spreading misinformation. Link to AP for proof.
"OMGIDGAF"?? Seriously? Yes, Jeffrey, we're all burnt out and we all wish Covid would go away. It COULD if everyone would mask and get vaccinated. Did you do your part?
This makes my head spin. "Blah, Blah, Blah" indeed!
The vaccine doesn't work you say? Well, it seems to me that Sen. Warren, Sen. Booker, and Rep. Crow are all still alive. Can you say the same, Jeffrey? Well, I guess you can't.
I didn't bother to download the video he shared from Ted Nugent's FB page, but you can watch it here. However, you know what to expect. A nurse lost her job because she is anti-vaxx and is now boo-hooing on the internet for clicks.
He tested negative for Covid on December 29, 2021. Was he feeling sick and then got tested? It doesn't matter much because....
Eight days after testing negative, on January 6th he says he has Covid and "Covid Ain't No Joke." Of COURSE covid "ain't no joke." It's always a joke until you have it, then suddenly it's serious. Maybe if he had visited SAV sooner he would have known what comes next. Cue the call for prayers.
I believe in the power of science. Maybe you should have, too, Jeffrey.
You NEEDED a vaccine. You can tell he's scared here and that really makes me sad but frustrated, too, because it didn't need to be like this.
January 13th, he is still hanging in there.
His last post was the following day, January 14th, about the Foo Fighters Movie.
Jeffrey passed away on April 23rd, 2022. He leaves behind his wife, two daughters, three step-children, and five grandkids.
Truly, he isn't the worst anti-vaxxer that's been on SAV. However, when you put your trust in the wrong place, the wrong media, the wrong people, it can have consequences. Jeffrey reminds me of several of my own family members who also won't vaccinate and won't believe anything that's not on Fox News or OAN. It hurts my heart to think that I could easily change Jeffery's post to my Uncle's and the only difference is the name and picture, though my Uncle actually survived Covid even after my Grandpa didn't (this was pre-vaccine at the very beginning of Covid). I don't know how people fall down this rabbit hole, lose critical thinking skills, and refuse to be reasoned with. It's especially difficult when you watch someone you love spiral into this bottomless pit of propaganda. I'll leave it there for now. If you're in the USA, have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
Finally, RIP Jeffrey.
