TJ was a great friend, co-worker and all around Gentleman. He was always there for me if I needed help or advice while on the Specials Crew. He always had a story to offer and no one knew DSO circuits as well as he did. It didn't matter what hour of the night, Tommy was always there. I was shocked to hear of his passing and I share in the grief of the Jones family. My prayers are with Stella and family. Bobby Weber
