What is Jeff's Ethnic Background?
        From questions submitted by fans through correspondence with Mary Guibert, Jeff's ethnic heritage was revealed:

        "Jeff's cultural background is pretty varied. He's Irish/Italian on his father's side, of course, but that's not an influence... My mother is Greek and my father is part French, part Panamanian, both my parents were born and raised in Panama, I was born there, and we all immigrated when I was three ... so there was a very strong Central American family culture. The romantic part is that my father was the illegitimate son of a French-American merchant marine who abandoned him, his mother and brother when they were very young. He never knew him until the elder Guibert returned to Panama to reconcile with his sons when they were grown men ... and only then did my father find out that he was an American citizen. This, of course, changed his life dramatically. It's how we were able to come to the U.S. It was my childhood fantasies about the French side of the family (about which I knew virtually nothing) that prompted me to study French in high school ... and it was in French class that I met the infamous Tim Buckley." --Mary Guibert
