Our son, Tommy was a month shy of his thirteenth birthday when he passed away unexpectedly in his sleep. The morning of April 17, 2018, when he did not wake up, has forever changed our lives. While the exact cause of death remains uncertain, it is likely that an undiagnosed structural issue with his heart played a role. To our family, his departure is mystical: he came, he conquered and he departed, and he has given us a lifetime of love, joy and teachings. We miss him beyond words, every single day.
The TM23 Foundation’s mission is to develop and support initiatives that teach children and young adults the Heart of Life, and inspire them to play, pursue their dreams, be themselves and have a positive impact on their community.
Tommy loved soccer and helped spread joy for the game across Los Angeles and beyond. This inspired our community to come together to develop a multi-purpose athletic field in his name. “Tommy’s Field” will be for everyone and a place where Tommy and his passion for soccer, and all sports, will always be remembered.
