Tommy’s Field

Tommy loved soccer and helped spread joy for the game across Los Angeles and beyond. This inspired our community to come together to develop multi-purpose athletic fields in his name. “Tommy’s Fields” are for everyone and a place where Tommy and his passion for soccer, and all sports, will always be remembered.

Our Story

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.

Our Mission

The TM23 Foundation’s mission is to develop and support initiatives that inspire children and young adults to play, pursue their dreams, be themselves, and have a positive impact on their community.

Ways to Give

Please join us in honoring Tommy’s legacy. TM23 Foundation is a not-for-profit, section 501(c)(3) corporation.
