Jeffrey S. SvendsenNorthborough – Jeffrey “Jeff” S. Svendsen, 57, passed away unexpectedly in his home March 21, 2019.

Jeff was born Nov. 19, 1961 in Bloomington, Minn. A longtime resident of Shrewsbury, Jeff most recently lived in Northborough. He graduated from Lincoln High School in Bloomington, Minn. and from Iowa State University with a bachelor’s degree in computer science.

Jeff was a prolific athlete earning All-State soccer goalie honors in high school while later playing on the hockey team while attending Iowa State University. He continued his involvement in sports, later coaching his sons’ Shrewsbury youth hockey teams and little league baseball teams.

Jeff worked many years in the semiconductor industry and was currently employed by Cumberland Farm Corporation as Manager of Distribution. He had been with Cumberland Farms for over a decade.

Jeff was a genuine, giving person who would gladly help anyone in need. Hardworking and determined, he never backed down from challenge. Jeff was smart and had a knack for solving problems. He enjoyed the outdoors and traveling, especially going on road trips to see new places in nature. He was also an avid Boston sports fan who loved to catch a Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, or Bruins game whenever he could. However, Jeff’s true joy was his children. Nothing made him happier than watching his children grow up doing what they love. Whether it was his sons playing sports or his daughter dancing, he was always there showing his unconditional love and support.

He leaves his three children, Jeffrey, Ryan, and Kaitlyn Svendsen and their mother Danielle Svendsen, all of Shrewsbury; his parents Bernard “Mike” and Joan (Voelker) Svendsen of Bloomington, Minn.; a brother, Greg Svendsen and his wife Karen of Eagan, Minn.; a brother, Kurt and his wife Andi of Eden Prairie, Minn.; and a sister, Amy (Svendsen) Clark and her husband Chris of Erie, Colo. He also leaves his nieces, Dana, Kari, Annika, and Karina, nephew Nik, and cousin Alex. Jeff was predeceased by his uncle, Dave Svendsen.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Jeff’s name can be made to The Svendsen Children’s Education Fund, Shrewsbury Federal Credit Union, 484 Boston Tpke., Shrewsbury, MA 01545.
