The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

Jeffrey LeBlanc, 47, of East Haven and Bethany passed away unexpectedly on July 29 at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He was born Oct. 27, 1971, in New Haven. Jeffrey is survived by his two daughters, Kaitlyn LeBlanc and Jocelyn LeBlanc, both of Branford; his mother Mary (Krajewski) DaCosta of Florida; father, Thomas DaCosta, Sr., of West Haven; and brothers Daniel DaCosta of West Haven, Jason DaCosta (Julie) of West Haven, and Thomas DaCosta (Amy) of North Haven. He is also survived by uncles Stanley Krajewski and Theodore Krajewski, both of East Haven. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Elizabeth Krajewski.
Shortly after high school Jeff moved to California to pursue his passion for music. He was a talented drummer, which allowed him to play with many bands. His talent didn’t stop at drumming; he also was an amazing artist, including wood burning. Once he reached his goal in California, he returned home to find another passion. This superseded the rest, which turned into the loves of his life, his two daughters, and with that, his new passion in life was being a father. Jeff was a well-loved and respected son, nephew, brother, brother-in-law, and uncle. He was a kind soul and will be greatly missed by all who were honored to know him.
The family received friends on Aug. 5 at the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home (Clancy Funeral Home), 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven. His funeral procession then left Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home for a Mass of Christian burial in St. Pio of Pietrelcina Parish at the Church of St. Vincent de Paul, 80 Taylor Ave., East Haven. Burial was private.
