Jeb was my next door neighbor in downtown Columbus, Ohio, and he was my friend. Wonderful memories. God bless you, brother. Enjoy those streets of gold.

Dear Magruder Family,
I am sorry to hear of Jeb's passing away. I met Jeb many yers ago when he worked with the Wyckoff Baptist team with a fundraising project for a church expansion.
While I was impressed by his skills and knowledge I was most touched by his testimony and the way he interacted with and cared for people. He was warm and caring and he will always be one of the most interesting people I have met in my live.
May your memories also be of the good times and may God bless you all.

It was a joy to get to know Jeb when he was our consultant at Westminster Church in Lincoln, NE. He was wise, insightful, warm and funny. His leadership guided us in raising over 3 million dollars, and the work from that project will continue on for the next hundred years. His work was tremendously helpful. More than that, I appreciated his spending time talking and guiding me as an older pastor to a younger one. I especially liked his statement to me when I asked about why he went to seminary. He said, "Because I wanted to figure out how 34 basically decent people could do something so dumb" (Watergate). I said, "Well, did you figure it out?" He said, "Yes. Reinhold Niebuhr, in "Children of Light, Children of Darkness." That was one of the most important books of political theory in the last century, yet it has been forgotten. That Jeb saw its importance spoke to me of his insight and wisdom. I truly enjoyed him, and felt blessed to spend time on the journey of faith with him. He was a blessing to me and our whole church. He will be missed and warmly remembered.
Rev. Andrew McDonald, Westminster Church, Lincoln, NE.

Please receive my deepest condolences to each member of the family in the passing of Jeb.
It was my privilege and honor to know him personally while we both served as consultants with RSI. While I had interest and questions concerning his involvement with the Nixon administration, I soon realized the better story was Jeb's own life. He was so open as an individual. It was a pleasure to share meals with him and hear of the fullness of his experiences and his splendid discernment on all that was happening around him in that moment.
Please know of my prayers that each of you will experience the power and presence of our God at this moment.

Jeb was our pre-marriage advisor at First Community Church in Columbus. He married us in a beautiful ceremony at the home of Patty's sister on 12/19/87 but to our regret, we soon lost touch with him. He was a fine man and a good counselor to us. We have enjoyed 27 years of happiness in no small measure to the life lessons he taught us. We miss Jeb and are grateful he was a part of our lives. May his family find peace and pride in knowing he was such a special person in so many ways.

To Jeb's Family:
I am saddened by the news of Jeb's death. I first met Jeb when he came to First Presbyterian Church in Burlingame, CA. He found out about our Church Biking Group and joined it. He was starting a Bethel Teacher's Training Group and asked me to join. I refused, but he persisted and challenged me to experience this bit of Faith Building. I joined and it became the beginning of my Faith Journey. I found Christ through that Course. When it was completed, we received a document. By that time, Jeb had moved to Columbus, but I sent it to him and he signed it. The Group continued with its other teachers for 20 years, and continued my Faith Journey. When he was in Lexington, he invited our group to join him and Patti for Worship and the Kentucky Derby.
Jeb was a compassionate and moral leader during his short time in Burlingame and I will always remember his enthusiasm, wit, counsel and leadership.
I pray for solace for his family at this time and feel assured that he is now with the Father.
Yours in Christ,

To Jeb's family,
I was saddened to hear of the loss of your father. I always loved talking with your dad- especially about politics and the latest news stories. I think of your dad often and always with fond memories.

Sorry, I'm just now seeing this. I went to school for a short time with Stuart in Colorado Springs. Stuart was very nice to this insecure little boy, even invited me to his birthday party. I never meet Jeb but he had to be a great man because I know what a great family he had.
