Meet Jeff Gladney Family Members
Jeff Gladney comes from a family of six — his parents: John D Gladney and Jacinda Jefferson, himself, and his 3 siblings.
But his blood bonds weren’t the only ones the NFL star considered to be his family. “Lost my brother, my best friend, my right-hand man … ain’t too much more I can take man damn!” Reagor, a receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, posted after his death.
Likewise, many other football stars took it to their socials to mourn the loss of their brother and a talented player.
Jeff, 25 at the time, died in a car crash on the morning of May 30, 2022. Reportedly, the crash took place around 2:30 a.m. and involved two vehicles. A preliminary investigation also found that a white vehicle was speeding and clipped a second vehicle from behind. The white vehicle then lost control and hit a freeway pier beam, killing the man (Jeff) and the woman inside.
Fortunately, the second vehicle, also occupied by a man and woman, escaped unscathed.
Who Is Jeff Gladney Father, John D Gladney?
Jeff Gladney’s father is named John D Gladney. He was born in May 1954. That made him 68 years of age when he lost his son in May 2022.

Talking about Jeff’s family, he was born to parents Dossie Pumphrey and Jeff Gladney; has four brothers: Bobby Gladney, Jerry Gladney, Darnell Riley, and Benjamin “Mole” Gladney, and two sisters named Florence Alexander and Lillie Phillips.

Jeff Gladney loved his mother Jacinda Jefferson more than anyone in this world. No wonder, just a few days before his death, he bought her a house with the help of his cousin Haley Steward.
“This closing will forever be dear to my heart. Not only is it my first but I was blessed with the opportunity to assist my cousin in purchasing his mother her dream home I don’t know who’s more excited! Thank you for your business Jeff! Looking forward to working with you again!! Congratulations Jeff Gladney! YOU DID IT,” Haley, who’s a realtor, took it to her FB after closing the deal.
