Lease, Ltd./www.beatlesuits.com, combining his extensive experience in the garment industry with his passion for collecting to reproduce stitch-for-stitch replicas of the Beatles' stage suits. He now outfits the top Beatles tribute bands in the world. Russ has  appeared on Good Morning America and the CBS Early Show. He and his wife Becky have three children and live in Columbia, Maryland.

He is best-known as co-author of three editions of The Beatles Memorabilia Price Guide and as a former memorabilia columnist for Beatlefan and Good Day Sunshine, two of the most popular Beatles fanzines in the United States. Jeff and his wife Barbara reside in Normal, Illinois where he operates a plumbing business. They are the parents of two grown children.
