Jeff Rosinski

I am asking prayer for the Rosinki & Treat families. A college friend of mine, Jeff died suddenly when he fell while hiking in the Rocky Mountains in CO. He leaves behind a wife with two small children and a world of people mourning his sudden loss. He was an Associate Pastor at his father's church in RI.


Here is the communique Dr. Meyer just sent to the Valley Forge Christian College employees and Board of Trustees.

Good afternoon, friends.

I am writing this afternoon to share with you the sad news of the home going of Jeff Rosinski, a VFCC alum. Anna, Jeff’s sister and a VFCC graduate of the class of 2009, called me last evening with the news. Jeff, along with his brother Greg , and two of Greg’s friends were in Colorado where they were climbing Long’s Peak. Greg and his friends decided not to continue up the mountain but Jeff went on alone. Evidently he made it to the top and as he was on his way down the accident happened. The person who found him reported very high winds on the mountain which may have contributed to his fall.

How our hearts and love and prayer support go out to his wife, Molly (also a VFCC alum) and their two small children (ages 1 and 3) as well as their entire family. Some of you know Molly’s twin brother, Brady Treat (also a VFCC alum) who is on staff at Glad Tidings AG, Reading, PA. A memorial service is being planned later in the week in Rhode Island where Jeff’s family lives. (Friday at 11am)

May God’s great grace minister to all of them and to all of us at this most difficult time.
