It has been awhile since I have posted since I no longer won any Walthers. I wanted to share this for those who might have know this person.

One of our members, GMountian, as well as his wife, have passed away. An accomplished attorney, Jeff served as President of the Treasure Coast Friends of NRA since its inception 14 years ago. Jeff’s intelligence, drive, and determination led the TCF of NRA to where it is today. He single handedly sold the most tickets and the most tables to our annual event; he just knew everyone. It was under Jeff’s leadership that we were able to support gun safety and training programs here in Florida.

Jeff was a standup guy. He came to several Walther shooting events in the past.

They were residents of Stuart.

No further information is available at this time.

Best regards to all - George

Jeff made it to the Greet and Shoots where it was my honor to meet him. He was a wonderful guy. He was friendly and fun at every event. I'm saddened by the news.

Attorney and his wife found dead in Palm City

Treasure Coast Newspapers USA TODAY NETWORK - FLORIDA
MARTIN COUNTY — Law enforcement is awaiting toxicology reports to determine how a Palm City attorney and his wife died last week in their home.
Jeffrey and Nancy Kirsch, both 62, were found in their home Thursday. No signs of trauma or foul play were found on either, a Martin County Sheriff’s Office report said.
Deputies went to the home in the 3700 block
of Southwest Sunset Trace Circle at 4:49 p.m. Wednesday after a relative said the couple had been sick and were not responding to phone calls, reports said. Jeffrey Kirsch met deputies at the door, telling them he and his wife were not feeling well but did not need medical care.
After receiving a second call asking for a welfare check of the couple, deputies returned to the home at 8:06 p.m. Thursday and found both dead.

“The caller said that Mr. Kirsch was supposed to summon an ambulance for his wife because her condition was deteriorating, but he never did,” the report said.
On Thursday, all doors and windows in the home were locked, the report said. Deputies saw a woman in the living room after cats moved the blinds on a window near the front door.

Martin County Fire Rescue forced open the door, the report said. Nancy Kirsch was found on the living room couch lying on her back. Jeffrey Kirsch was found in the upstairs master bedroom’s bathroom.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene. No messages were found inside the home, the report said. A spokesperson for the Treasure Coast Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed both were scheduled for autopsies.
Martin County Animal Control removed the couple’s cats from the home, the report said. It is unknown how many cats the couple owned, said Christine Christofek, Sheriff’s Office spokesperson.

Jeffrey Kirsch was admitted to the Florida Bar in December 1982 and was noted as a member “in good standing,” according to the Florida Bar website. He practiced law at a Southeast Ocean Boulevard office in Stuart.

The couple, both graduates of Michigan State University, were married in 1982, according to a New York Times article.

No foul play determined after Stuart attorney and wife's deaths in Martin County

MARTIN COUNTY — A Stuart attorney and his wife who were found dead last week in their Palm City home died from "complications of hepatitis A," according to a spokeswoman for the Treasure Coast Medical Examiner's Office.

The manner of death was natural, said Christine Canard, the administrative manager for the Examiner's Office.

Jeffrey Kirsch and his wife, Nancy Kirsch, both 62, were found dead in their home in Palm City on March 28.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, hepatitis A is a communicable disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus. It is spread by food or water contaminated by fecal matter. Symptoms include stomach pain, a decreased appetite, nausea and fatigue. It is prevented by being vaccinated against it.

Theresa Hewitt, Jeffrey Kirsch's paralegal for three years, and Randall Fischer, an attorney who worked with him, both said Jeffrey Kirsch was sick with what appeared to be the flu about a week before he died and was "extremely ill."

"They (Jeffrey and Nancy Kirsch) were both so sick, and I honestly think he was so sick he wasn't thinking clearly," Fischer said. "The whole thing is absolutely bizarre."

Martin County sheriff's spokeswoman Christine Christofek wrote in an email Thursday afternoon that the agency concluded its investigation and found no foul play and no criminal cause to the couple's deaths.

Deputies said they went to the couple's home in the 3700 block of Southwest Sunset Trace Circle in Palm City about 4:50 p.m. March 27 after a relative said they had been sick and were not responding to phone calls.

Jeffrey Kirsch met deputies at the door and told them he and Nancy were both sick, but that they did not need medical help.

Deputies said they returned to the home the next day after they received another call to check in on the couple, and found them both dead.

According to the Florida Department of Health in Martin County, hepatitis A can spread when someone touches objects, food or drinks that are contaminated by fecal matter from a person with hepatitis A.

Renay Rouse, spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Health in Martin County, said as of Thursday afternoon, the agency is not investigating any restaurants or businesses in the county for being effected by hepatitis A.

Rouse said there has not been any contaminated food or water in the county.

No further information was available Thursday.
