TJ Turner, age 39, died of a massive brain hemorrhage on March 28, 2015, in Cape Coral, FL. TJ is survived by his wife, Kari Turner, of 13 ½ years; his children, Aidan Michael George (11), Kalli Ann (9), and Cole Joshua Patrick (who will be 5 this Easter Sunday); his parents, Barbara Carr, Terry and Terrie Turner; his grandparents, Phyllis Kiser, Don Kiser, and Helen and Justin Collins. He is preceded in death by his grandfather, George "Pop Pop" Turner; and Uncle 'Lil' Don Kiser, Jr. and two unborn babies as the result of miscarriage.
He was born on August 3, 1975 in Cleveland, Ohio and grew up in North Ridgeville. TJ graduated from Baldwin Wallace College in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Accounting. He worked as an Ohio Tax Auditor before moving to Sarasota, Florida and working at Arthur Andersen. In 2000, he began at Vertex, Inc., based out of Berwyn, PA and also located in Sarasota, and has been with them ever since. TJ graduated from Thomas Jefferson Law School, San Diego, CA, in 2010 with a Master of Science of Law. At the time of his death he was a Senior Principle Tax Architect and loved his job and the amazing team at Vertex.
TJ cared deeply for his entire family and was a loving husband and father. He married his high school sweetheart, Kari Thurmer in 2001. He was a Christian who was deeply involved in his church. He loved reading God's Word and leading worship at Living Faith Church where he was ordained as an Elder on Feb. 22, 2015. He was an avid runner, reader and enjoyed yard work, the beach, playing guitar and singing in his church band, Cleveland sports and blogging about the most important things in life: family and faith. TJ will always be remembered as a guy who loved God. But he also knew that God loved him more.
