Jeff Akers is the park ranger in Moon Lake, Pennsylvania. He wants to get transferred to a bigger park and enforces the rules very strongly, even ticketing Nancy right after she escapes from a burning shed.
Ghost Dogs of Moon LakeEdit
Jeff Akers is the grandson of William "Willy" Akers, who was the notorious gangster Mickey Malone's most trusted employee. Jeff's not proud of his lineage and denies his relation to Willy at first, but Nancy discovers the connection when reading Willy's journal and realizing that Willy's son was Joe Akers, Jeff's father.
Perhaps inspired by his grandfather's part in Moon Lake's colorful history, Jeff collects every bit of history he can get his hands on from the early 1900's to the present and displays it at the ranger station.
Bess Marvin had a long distance crush on him. However, this was only because he was a park ranger and thought that meant he was automatically cute. At one point, she offered to go up to Moon Lake, possibly to just meet Jeff.
Jeff is a stickler for the rules and is not popular for it. Although acknowledging that he is a public servant, he does heavily imply to Nancy that he is a busy man and doesn't need her to make it any busier.
- Jeff owns a dog named Yogi.
