    I want to thank Tim for his friendship and kindness. He will always be a great role model as a Father, friend and coach. We are blessed to have had him in our lives and in the life of our daughter. His smile and laughter will always be remembered. We are heartbroken for Jen, Josie and Grace and all of Tim and Jenny’s family and friends. May you all be blessed and surrounded with peace and love in all the days to come. Rest well my friend. We will continue to Stop That Ball!

    One of a kind! That smile always lit up a room. God certainly did get one of the best. When I think of Tim, I think of his “crew”. Ride or Die, Thick as Thieves. Such a great group of buddies. He will sorely be missed, but know his memories will last forever. To all the family, my deepest condolences.
    A million prayers and hugs to you!

    I am sending my sincere condolences to Tims beautiful wife,and daughters. I knew Tim in college,, and he was such a impactful person, who made such a huge impression on everyone he encountered. Although I wish I had seen more of him, in the ensuing time period, it was always so great to see him. He just had the unique trait, of making other people feel good around him,. He was one of the most enthusiastic people, I have ever come across… And he clearly had a life well lived… He made a huge impression, on people that he did not know extremely well,… I only wish I had now, I had known him more.. In thoughts and prayers, during a difficult time… -B

    I had the pleasure of working with Tim at Ronald J. Palagi’s while he was in law school. His kindness and intelligence were stellar. We were in a commercial for Ronald J. Palagi’s in the year 2000. We had many laughs when we worked together. I was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I am praying for him and his entire family.

    I just saw Tim at the last Husker game. Always a smile on his face. As a fellow Burke bulldog and FIJI I looked up to Tim. He was a great guy and wrote many of my papers in college :). You will be missed brother!
