Basic Information

Jeff Rosso is the counselor at McKinley High who lived through the drug filled hippie era and still looks and acts like one.

Character History

Memorable Moments



Sam, when I was about twenty, I was hanging out in this honky tonk down south when a big bunch of rednecks surrounded me. Started making jokes about my fringe vest, my hair, calling me a 'hippy'...a woman. They dragged me into an alley, made me dance, told me to bark like a dog....what matters is i never lost pride in who i am.
