Rulon Timpson Jeffs Rulon Jeffs with two of his plural wives. Born December 6, 1909(1909-12-06) Died September 8, 2002(2002-09-08) (aged 92) Spouse As many as 75[1] Rulon Timpson Jeffs (December 6, 1909 – September 8, 2002) (known to church members as Uncle Rulon) was the leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a Mormon fundamentalist organization based in Colorado City, Arizona. Jeffs was the son of David William Jeffs and Nora Timpson. Jeffs was a follower of FLDS Church leader Leroy S. Johnson, who died in 1986. Jeffs assumed the prophetic leadership of the FLDS Church after Johnson's death. It was reported that at the time of Jeffs' death at age 92 that he may have had as many as 75 wives and 65 children[2]; however, conflicting sources indicate that Jeffs may have been survived by 19 or 20 wives and "about 60 children," including 33 sons.[3] Shortly after his death, one of Rulon's sons Warren Jeffs asserted his own leadership of the FLDS Church and subsequently married all but two of his father's widows, figuratively making him the stepfather of many of his siblings but (more relevantly from a political standpoint) solidifying his position in the community as well as ensuring a measure of security for the widows. Warren has allegedly ignored ongoing abuse of women and children and witnessed or supported a number of underage marriages.[4] See also List of Mormon fundamentalist leaders Mormonism and polygamy References ^ Wade Goodwyn, Howard Berkes and Amy Walters, "Warren Jeffs and the FLDS Church", NPR, 2005-05-03. ^ NPR report on Warren Jeffs and the FLDS Church - Last accessed Sept 07, 2007 ^ Mormon Leader Is Survived by 33 Sons and a Void (New York Times) ^ External links Rulon Jeffs.
