We lost a family member: Nidecker USA’s thoughts on Joe Timlin’s death

Comments by Jonathan Glass/

From Everyone at the Nidecker USA Family:

By now many of you may have heard the news about the avalanche in Colorado that occurred Saturday, April 20th, near Loveland Pass. Sadly we lost one of our own in this tragic accident. Joe Timlin was the YES, NOW, and Jones Snowboards rep for the Rocky Mountain region, but more importantly, he was family. Brother-in-law to DCP and Megan, and a close friend to many in the Colorado winter sports community, Joe was a bright, dynamic person who will be sorely missed. Everyone here at Nidecker USA considers Joe and his wife Krissy to be a part of our family, and we are devastated by this terrible loss. Memorial information will be provided once we hear more details from Joe’s family.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families. As we all begin the process of picking up the pieces, it’s important to remember that life is precious and family is everything.
