His ex-wife Shirley shows up a few times in this very thread...

 

I'm not going back through six pages to check for the nods to her, but at least in A3 the Shirley is in the area of the world with a few other Laverne & Shirley characters.

 

But Shirley's elsewhere/in other games are probably the ex

You could just go back to the updated initial post that lists the actual cameos.

 

A3 does actually have a very specific reference to Shirley: Monoroe province is a slight alteration of her last name.  All of the provinces, apparently, were named after Jeff's ex's (plus Mariann, of course).

 

(Also, I'm not sure whether there are any random Shirley's in other Spiderweb games, but sharing a very common first name is definitely not enough, by itself, to establish a connection.  Everything included in the list has something beyond that, anyway.)

Oh, hey, it occurs to me. Geneforge 1 - Mutagen has a name cameo that I know because I put it in there, thanks Kickstarter. Hiley, the flute-playing servile in the basement of The Tombs, has a number of references to the book *cough* Sudanna, Sudanna in his dialogue, not least of which is his name, shared with a character in said book. His flute, his dorky hat, elements of his backstory, you see what I've done here. Even the ghosts, from a thematic standpoint. Ta-da!
