Klein Family

On June 2, 2018, our dear friend, Tim Klein, passed away in a climbing accident in Yosemite.  Tim was an amazing man of God, husband, father, teacher, friend and climber.  One week prior to this tragedy, Tim was selected as Antelope Valley High School District's Teacher of the Year. He earned this not only because of his hard work, but because of his heart for students. He purposed himself to train his students to "turn your passion into a paycheck," and many who took the advice credit him with the reason they are now in their current professions. He did all this while coaching special needs soccer with one of his sons, maintaining grant funding for his school, breaking a Guinness Record to raise money for a critically injured student, and caring for his family. His life impacted thousands of friends, families, and students.

Now it's our chance to follow his example . . .  

In honor of Tim, we're asking friends, family and good samaritans to help his family. Tim was the primary provider for his wife JJ and his boys Levi and Jack. Losing a father is something we can't change for them, but being able to take away some of their financial stress would be one way to honor Tim's legacy. Our desire is to use these funds to not only help with funeral costs, but provide for Tim's family for health insurance, mortgage payments,  and other unforeseen living expenses. We also hope to pave the way for the boys' educational needs both today and in the future as this was something on both Tim and JJ's hearts.
