Life long civil servant Steven “Jeff” Rogers passed away peacefully in his sleep on September 21, 2022. Jeff was born December 13, 1950 in Lee’s Summit, MO to parents Gloria (Davis) Rogers and William “Ted” Rogers.
Jeff dedicated his life to serving his community and fellow officers. Jeff was an avid fan of the Kansas City sports teams including the Royals, Chiefs and Mavericks. In his later years you could find Jeff with Caroline either at the Maverick’s hockey game or watching his youngest son Jackson play soccer and football. Jeff was always extremely proud of Jackson and his many accomplishments. You couldn’t talk to Jeff without first finding out about how Jackson was doing and how proud he was of him.
Jeff is survived by wife, Caroline Rogers; brother, William “Tedford” Rogers; sister-in-law, Penny Rogers; sons, Jackson and Sean Rogers; daughter-in- law, Ashley Rogers; grandchildren, Lennon Rogers and Hudsyn Broaddus.
