Jeffery Parrish Obituary

Jeffery D. Parrish (61) of Scotts Hill, Tennessee, peacefully passed away at his home Sunday
morning, February 18, 2024. Born to Paul and Freda Parrish on July 1, 1962, Jeff was known as
intelligent and hard-working in his youth. Scholastically, he was valedictorian of his class at
Scotts Hill High School and eventually earned a Doctor of Law degree from University of
Memphis School of Law.
After graduating, Jeff began an accomplished career as an attorney serving in private practice,
corporate health care, and most recently as State Counsel and Field Director for U.S. Senator
Marsha Blackburn.
A long-time parishioner of St. Regina Catholic Church in Parsons, Tennessee, Jeff lived a life in
service to his Catholic faith focusing on peace, humility, and finding God’s presence in all things.
Apart from his professional career and spirituality, Jeff celebrated a breadth of personal interests
including travel, music, food, and boating. He cherished time on his screened porch and dutifully
cared for his home and family. He is lovingly remembered as being witty, helpful, generous, and
Jeff is survived by his son, Jonathan (Rebekah); his daughter, Eliza; brother Kenny (Lisa); sister
Gina (Neil); his Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Tenby; four nephews and a niece: Dillon, Peyton, Sam,
Jake, and Sadie. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Paul and Freda, as well
as four beloved canines: Morgan, Mitch, Millie, and Sophie.
The Parrish family will host a funeral at St. Regina Catholic Church in Parsons, Tennessee, on
Friday, February 23, 2024, at 12:00 PM. There will also be a visitation hosted at the same venue
on Thursday, February 22, 2024, from 3:00 to 7:00 PM. All who knew Jeff are welcome to attend.  Burial will follow the funeral mass at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Bath Springs.
