Jeffry Stuart Carter died January 11, 2020. He was born to Fred and Mariann Carter in 1956 in LaPorte, IN, the same town where he met the love of his life, Jan Janssen, whom he married in 1978 following graduation from Purdue.
Jeff had a remarkable career in the environmental, health, and safety field along with serving his community on numerous boards including the Carmel Clay School board and leading the Central Indiana Habitat for Humanity affiliate.
