March 6, 1985 - May 3, 2014
Jeffrey Taylor Raggio. If life is measured by how much you love and are loved, Jeff Raggio’s all too short life was rich indeed. He had a kind heart and a quick wit, was a prolific reader with an encyclopedic memory and was a fabulous cook who loved to entertain friends and family. He was proud to have joined his family law firm in 2011 to carry on the legacy begun by his grandparents Grier and Louise Raggio in 1956. Jeff, beloved son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend was born on March 6, 1985 and died on May 3, 2014 in a tragic 4-wheeler accident. He was a graduate of Highland Park High School (2003) where he played varsity soccer and participated in the Academic Decathlon. After graduation from Goucher College near Baltimore in 2007 with a BA degree in political science, he attended SMU Law School, graduating in 2011. He then joined the Raggio Family Law firm as an associate, working alongside his father and uncles. Jeff served as the 2013 Co-Vice-Chair and 2014 Co-Chair of Legalline, a public service program of the Dallas Bar Assoc., offering free legal advice to the public twice a month. He had a true passion for this program and was very committed to its success. He was also active on the Dallas Bar’s Admission & Membership, Legal Ethics and Community Involvement Committees. Jeff is survived by his parents, Ken and Patty Raggio and brother Captain Michael Raggio, USAF, girlfriend Emily Sterry, aunts, uncles and cousins, numerous friends, and professional collegues.
