Jimmy Richardson Family Fund

To everyone who may or may not have heard the news, our most beloved friend & coworker, James “Jimmy” Richardson, was involved in a fatal car accident on Sunday, May 19, 2019 in Florida.  What has happened is beyond comprehension and his Roadtec family is still in shock. However, nothing will ever compare to the devastation and struggle currently being endured by his beloved wife and daughters.

Jimmy was a wonderful husband and father.  The emotional healing for his family will take time and there is no doubt that his absence will be felt for years to come.

We started this campaign to help provide his family with some financial support during this difficult time and all funds raised will directly benefit the future well-being of his beloved wife, Jamie, and for the upbringing of his adorable daughters, Bailey & Brooklyn.


Also, please feel free to add a memory to:
