Executive Director Message
I like to think of UF Health Proton Therapy Institute employees as family members, and there are many of our family members who are behind the scenes helping to make the Institute run smoothly. Last week we unfortunately lost one of our most highly valued family members. Jeff Rexford was a truly extraordinary man who led our team of on-site engineers, overseeing the maintenance of the proton equipment. Jeff served in this role as IBA’s site-manager since 2006. Thanks to his exceptional leadership, our proton therapy equipment was rarely out of service and was maintained to the highest standard. Jeff was recognized by our board of trustees in 2015 as the first recipient of the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute Excellence Award. His dedication was unquestionable. His expertise was undeniable. I am privileged and honored to have known Jeff as a friend, and I truly admire his many contributions to the Institute’s past and future success.
