In 1997, Jeff and his family established the Conine Clubhouse at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital to serve as a “home away from home” for families of children receiving medical care at the hospital. More than 25,000 families have stayed at the Conine Clubhouse, remaining close to their young ones during critical times in their lives.
