    I doubt it. I think he's dead.

    Here is the quote from the article, which was an obituary of Al Hirt:

    " Two of his children, Jefferson and Gretchen Hirt, died before he did."

    Unless you are talking about a different Jeff Hirt.

    The article didn't say what was the cause of death and a cursory internet search didn't reveal much either. I wonder if it was something like an auto accident or something because it wasn't only Jefferson that preceded his father in death, it was his sister too.
