Jeff Lovett was a tremendous friend to KSB Hospital. Mr. Lovett has served as our organization’s primary banker for over 30 years, most recently as a regional market president for Midland States Bank.
The name on Jeff’s business card changed through mergers and acquisitions, however his commitment to the Sauk Valley did not change. Jeff’s goal was to promote Dixon and the surrounding communities. He was a tremendous supporter of economic development with a brilliant strategic mind.
I always felt as if Jeff was our partner and not simply interested in the transaction. He lived his philosophy of “shopping local” and was personally invested in our part of the world. Countless companies in our area are stronger today due to our relationship with Jeff.
I had the opportunity to serve with Jeff on many committees and boards. He was a tireless worker and always said just the right thing at just the right time. He is a good friend and a wonderful mentor.
I miss him already.
The KSB Family has the Lovett’s in our thoughts and prayers.
