DR. JEFFREY HOFMAN KRAMER, of Cherry Hill, passed away on May 18 after a two-year battle against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease). Jeff was born in 1955 in Quonset Point, RI to Albert Kramer and the late Eva Kramer. Jeff earned his undergraduate degree from Amherst College and was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society. During his time at Amherst, Jeff met Jane Schwartz Kramer at Hillel and Jeff and Jane were later married in 1978. Jeff graduated from New York University School of Medicine and completed his medical training at Stanford University and New York University. He was a partner of the Cardiovascular Associates of the Delaware Valley for 27 years, where he started and directed its innovative clinical research program. Outside of his work, Jeff enjoyed Jewish studies, travelling with his family, wine club with friends, discussing wide-ranging topics from politics to arts to sports, and pushing his physical fitness to his personal limits. Recently, Jeff helped develop the Temple Beth Sholom Bioethics Initiative, which will be named in his honor. He is remembered not only for his accomplished career, but also for the indelible mark he left on his patients, his friends, his family, and even those he met in passing. Jeff had a unique ability to make each individual feel like they were the only person in the room, an incredible intellectual curiosity, a charisma and smile that lit up the space, and an endearing humor that persisted even through his hardest days. He reiterated in his final moments how fortunate he was for the love that surrounded him. He is survived by his loving wife Jane; his children Rachel, Allie and Evan; his brother Ken; and his sister Judi.
