On June 20th 2021, Roxanne took to IG to share a Father’s Day post for TJ. She wrote: “He was a 27yr old BMX rider who went all in, being a father to a 5yr old little girl. I’ve never seen a man so patient. Teaching her to ride a dirt bike, buying her first stick shift truck, waksurfing, backing up a boat trailer…never once raised his voice or got impatient. He’s never missed a moment in her life.
