uels was a PE teacher at Summer Bay High and began taunting Steven Matheson which ended up in Steve punching him, and getting many detentions for doing so.

In October 1988, Alison Patterson tried to implicate his brother Gary Samuels in a robbery at The Macklin Group and Jeff warned her off.

Gary Samuels committed suicide in November 1988. Jeff thought Carly had pushed him but witnesses say Gary did fall. A distraught Jeff tied up a few loose ends, making amends with Steven and apologising to Carly before deciding to start afresh and leave Summer Bay for good.

As of 2018, Jeff has never returned to Summer Bay and what has become of him is uncertain.
