Giving Back


Dear Readers,

Our good friend and incredibly talented photographer Jeff Hobson was diagnosed with Leukemia about a month ago. He’s been fighting the disease at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle while his family has been staying strong and optimistic at their home in Tacoma. Besides the amazing work he does for us at South Sound magazine, Jeff is also a youth pastor at Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Puyallup. At 4pm on Saturday Dec. 14 and Sunday Dec. 15 the church will be presenting “The Worst Best Christmas Pageant Ever.” Admission to the pageant is free, but donations will be accepted during both shows to help pay for Jeff’s medical bills. If you’re able to attend, it should be a ton of fun, especially for the kids. If you’re unable to attend you can mail donations to the church with “Jeff Hobson” in the memo line of your check.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jeff each and every day. Not only is he deeply missed during this difficult time but his beautiful photography surrounds us in our office. Below are all the covers Jeff has shot for South Sound magazine and its sister publication 425 magazine. We hope and pray there will be many more to come.
