    I knew Dave while at the University of Wisconsin Stout. We were in the same fraternity Phi Sigma Epsilon and had many great times together.. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    Jersey, just like his nickname, intelligent, humble is all walks of life. Am sure his afterlife is filled with the same traits. RIP, Dave
