Jeff studied entomology as an undergraduate at UC Davis and later earned his D.D.S. from the University of the Pacific. He knew his years at UC Davis would be the best of his life: he studied hard, played hard, and enjoyed intramural sports and dorm life. A CAAA Life Member since soon after graduation, Jeff is also on the UC Davis Parent and Family Council. Indeed, the entire Jarvis family bleeds blue and gold: Jeff’s wife Pamela has two UC Davis degrees and their daughter Katy will earn her third UC Davis degree, a Ph.D., in 2020. Jeff recently retired from his 32-year dentistry career and is now busier than ever as a volunteer, lifelong learner, beekeeper, and car enthusiast.
