Didn't know him, and had I known him we might have been at odds over ideology regarding backcountry access, but the man was incredibly dedicated and concerned about the welfare of others. For that I have immense respect and I am saddened by the news that he has died so young. Condolences to his family and all those that called him friend and colleague.

Whatever I write here won't be adequate words for Tim's farewell, but this is so unfortunate. I must have been off the mountain not long before this occurred. My deepest condolences are out to Tim's family, especially Curtis at this time.

Spunky mentioned my words were not well put and misunderstood by some.
Shocking and untimely news.

Last week Tim spoke to me in the evening about my friend Doug Soo who died while hiking the BCMC on that weekend. quote "We threw everything we had at it Paul. Could you let the family know that we did our best?"

Tim, You definitely did throw everything at it. You always did.

My Thoughts and prayers go out to Tims' family and to all the team members.

I am deeply saddened by this news. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to Tim Jones' family, community and friends.

I will remember Tim's dedication and focus. His work and passion was in the mountains, and sadly the mountain claimed him back. His indefatigable drive and skillful team helped save the lives of many. He leaves behind a tremendous legacy, with great big boots to be filled by his successor.

Rest in Peace Tim.

Wow - just heard this on the news. Sincere condolences to his family, friends, colleagues, and fellow SAR members...The world needs more colouful, local characters of his caliber to educate, inspire, and get the job done. He has certainly left an important and enduring legacy, may all of his find comfort in that. I met him once and my mom knew him from early connections in N.Van. He had a memorable larger than life quality...RIP.

Such a sad shock and loss: few people have contributed so much to the outdoors community and to British Columbia.

A local peak should be named in his honour and memory: perhaps Runner or Crown N1 or Peak 5400 (Gotha/Cobourg)?

(I recognise that the naming of peaks is a topic of controversy on ClubTread, and do not wish to hijack this thread with debate: for now, just a suggestion, to be continued on another thread at another time).

His superhuman legacy will transcend the incredible humanity he stived for in his life. He was an advocate of the human spirit in so many ways.

The Vancouver outdoor community will have to look deep within to fill his shoes, and to regain such a mountain of energy and passion.

My heartfelt condolences go out to all of his family, and to all of those, who's hearts he touched and will never recover from the impact of such an incredibly caring, passionate man. What an incredible loss to us all and I will be forever grateful for witnessing such dedication to life itself.

Some good pictures of Tim in here :


For those that haven't been around long enough, see here:


Give it a bit of time, but I think that in the near future CT should throw another fundraiser in honor of Tim Jones.
