With heavy hearts we say goodbye to our beloved Jefferey Lance Carter. Born November 18, 1979 in Torrance, CA, he blessed our lives for 33 years. Jefferey was born and raised in the South Bay and graduated from Redondo Union High school. He started his employment career at Staples in Torrance where he met the love of his life, Melissa Solis. They were married October 11, 2003. The following year, Hannah, the other love of his life, was born. Jeff and Hannah were inseparable. The bond between them was more than amazing. Jeff and his young family lived in Arizona for eight years, before returning to Redondo Beach in 2009. During their life in Arizona, Jeff touched many lives and made many lifelong friends. Jeff was a computer whiz, as he had many internet endeavors and prided himself on his accomplishments. He has many friends worldwide as he touched lives around the globe. Jefferey is predeceased by his mother June Carter and is survived by his father Steven Carter Sr., his wife Melissa and daughter Hannah. He is also survived by his three brothers, Steven Jr., Frederick and Andrew, plus countless aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and friends. Jeff's love of God, family and friends plus extraordinary personality will leave a huge void in all our lives. We miss you and love you forever, can't wait to see you someday – always in our hearts.

  1. I met Jeff working at GoDaddy in Scottsdale, AZ. We were mostly inseparable as were our wives and daughters. Our families attended the same church. Jeff was not just a best friend to me, he was a brother to me in so many ways.

    He had the biggest heart of anyone that I have ever known and a gift for making people smile. He was always smiling and it was impossible to be in a bad mood around Jeff. He had a special way of comforting people and saying the right thing, at the right time, and in the right way.

    My daughter thought of Jeff as an Uncle and loved him very much. There aren’t enough words to express how much we love Jeff and how dearly he will be missed.

    Our hearts and prayers go out to Jeff’s family. He touched many people’s lives world wide. Jeff was larger than life and the world is a bit sadder without him in it.

    I love you brother.

  2. We met Jeff through school where his daughter and our daughter became friends. It was immediately evident that Jeff was a great guy, a wonderful dad and a caring husband to Melissa. Our families started spending time together, Wii games, Disneyland, Griffith Observatory, and we enjoyed every minute spent together. We have lost a dear, dear friend. God bless you, Jeff. We will miss you so much.

  3. I’m going to miss you brother. Wish I could have come out sooner to see you, I don’t know who to turn to for advice anymore, when we met in 2001 seems like yesterday. All the good times we shared and laughter we had, it’s going to be hard without you here to turn to. I miss you bro.

  4. It is never easy to lose a friends or family. I never met Jeff in person, I only knew him as a fellow internet buddy who loved computers like I did. I can only offer my condolences to his family and friends and that I will miss him. May God bless him and his family and ease their loss. by knowing he is in a better place now. May peace be with him and his family.
