I got to know TJ from working with him at the Winter Nationals in Florida 3 years ago, and on occasion at Port on the 07. He was the kind of guy who always was smiling and was easy to get along with. Such a sad thing to happen at a young age. My thoughts are with his young son and his family at this terrible time.

R.I.P. TJ
