31st Birthday
August, 2013 — D.J. would have turned 31 this year. Wow! There will be no birthday party this year, however, because the family came together in the Wisconsin Dells, WI, earlier this month to celebrate August birthdays. But feel free to grab a Slurpee, and/or predict your own time for a 5K, and/or whatever you'd like to do in memory of D.J.. Thanks for visiting this website!
2012 Scholarship Fund Recipient - Marie Richardson

Marie Richardson

Marie Richardson has been award the Daniel Tamer "DJ" Tamer scholarship for 2012, receiving $2,000. She will attend Indiana University in the fall. In addition to being in the Academic Top 30, Marie was an IHSFA (Speech, people!) State Finalist in Original Performance in 2011 (3rd place) and 2012 (6th place), was a varsity runner in cross country and track & field, was an indoor track state qualifier in the distance medley relay (2010 and 2011) and the 4x800 meter relay (2010-2012), and also played the oboe in the band! Finally, her scholarship essay was hilarious and profoundly philosophical. Kudos!

Please note that Youtube has disabled either the audio or the entire video of several of D.J.'s and my videos due to copyright "violations". You can still download the mp4s I have linked, and I'm hoping to find the time to trick the system and have our videos viewable again. If you ever want a DVD full of D.J.'s music videos, send me an e-mail.
Get Busy Living

Wrist bands (similar to Lance Armstrong's LiveStrong) are now available that have "DJ" and "Get Busy Living" engravings. They're being sold for $5 and all profits go to the DJ Tamer Scholarship Fund. Contact Adam Helton (ahelton AT automaticpoolcovers DOT net) for details.
Dedicate a Slurpee for D.J.

7-ElevenThe next time you drive by a 7-Eleven, we encourage you to stop in and grab a nice, brain-freezin' Slurpee. While D.J. almost daily downed a 44 oz. Coke Slurpee, we're sure he wouldn't mind you enjoying any size or flavor.
