May 7, 1963—January 3, 2002

Jeffrey M. Clinton was born in 1963, the same year that Grey Eagle Distributors opened for business. At the time of his untimely death at the age of 38, he was President and Chief Operating Officer of the company. Grey Eagle is the St. Louis County wholesaler of Anheuser-Busch products. Mr. Clinton made significant contributions to St. Louis area sports by overseeing Grey Eagle’s involvement in a variety of sporting activities. He was instrumental in the growth of the Budweiser Sports League for amateur athletes. He coordinated Grey Eagle’s sponsorship of the Budweiser “Guns ‘N Hoses,” an annual boxing show featuring St. Louis Police Officers and Firefighters that has raised more than $1.4 million for the St. Louis Backstoppers.

But his heart belonged to auto racing. In 1987, he entered Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) regional and national races earning the St. Louis SCCA Chapter’s “Rookie of the Year” award in 1988. Mr. Clinton twice won SCCA National Championships. He captured the GT-5 class at the SCCA National Runoffs in 1990 and the Sports 2000 class at the SCCA National Runoffs in 2000. He won numerous titles and championships during his brief racing career.
