Catch You Later Foundation is a non profit organization comprised of those who love the O'Donnell family most. Former students, friends, and the grieving wife and daughter, Pam and Ali O'Donnell that are left behind.

It is our hope that we can help send a senior high school student to college with a small scholarship. College is something Bridget wanted to do but sadly that opportunity was tragically taken from her. Help us assist another student get to college with a small scholarship in her memory by making a donation today.

 

The Catch You Later Foundation was created to spread awareness of the NJ State #77 Aggressive Driving program.

State Police Increase Patrols Statewidefor July 4th Holiday Weekend West Trenton, N.J. – The New Jersey State Police would like everyone to enjoy their holiday safely. If you plan on visiting one of our beaches, lakes, state parks, or spending time with friends and family, there will be more cars on our roadways statewide, including ours.During the July 4th holiday last year, there were eight fatal crashes that resulted in nine deaths, with alcohol or drugs as a contributing factor in five of them. These types of tragedies can often be avoided by calling a taxi, using transportation applications such as Uber and Lyft, making plans to stay with friends or family, or having a designated driver. We also want to remind motorist that fatigued drivers can often display the same signs as intoxicated drivers. If you are planning a long road trip, please ensure that you are well-rested before driving and utilize service areas to stop and rest. The New Jersey State Police have planned to increase traffic enforcement details across the state from 6:00 p.m. on Friday, July 1 to 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5. During this period, more than 92 additional troopers will be on special details targeting aggressive driving, speeding, seatbelt usage, distracted driving, and DWI in addition to regularly scheduled patrols. Motorists are reminded that when they see emergency vehicles on the side of the road to move over. According to New Jersey’s Move Over Law, drivers approaching stationary emergency vehicles, tow trucks, and other highway safety vehicles displaying flashing lights must move over to leave an empty lane next to those vehicles. If it is not safe to move over, drivers must slow down below the posted speed limit. The State Police Marine Bureau will also be patrolling the state’s waterways this weekend, and troopers will be looking for signs of boaters under the influence of alcohol or drugs and reckless operation of boats and personal watercrafts. For additional information on boating safety and requirements please visit www.njsp.org/marine-services/index.shtml. “While enjoying your holiday weekend with friends and family in our great state of New Jersey, we remind everyone to do so responsibly,” said Colonel Patrick J. Callahan, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. “On behalf of the New Jersey State Police, I would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe Fourth of July weekend.” ... See MoreSee Less

6 years and 9 months is far too short for any man to be a father, A Father's Day without the man himself is not what we were ever anticipated in life. This picture was taken 12/9/10 the day before we took bridget home from the hospital. Every time I told tim what a great dad he was he always responded with a tear in his eye, "I don't want to be great I just want to be a good" well I can tell you he exceeded being good or great, there are no words for the father he was. He basked in the glory of being a dad, it hurts me to know that at one time he thought he would never be one but he in fact was born to be one. It hurts my soul in knowing that he of all people were mowed down senselessly, he had so much more to offer the world (please don't tell me his job here on earth was done, it doesn't help at all when you say that and it's not comforting it actually hurts more) there are no words to tell of the loss we suffer daily, all we can do is honor, the man, the myth, and yes the legend. I always had hoped our children were boys so that there would be more men like tim in the world because this world needs more Tims in it. I was honored to be his friend, wife and ultimately the person he chose to give him his children. I can never fulfill his shoes nor do I want to try, there is no point in it. All I know is the world is a very lonely and sad place without my husband Tim in it, the world is a very lonely and sad place without Alis dad in it. Please don't take your job as dad for granted, you never know when it will end! ...

In Memoriam

Our history is a short one, having only been created after the events that took place on February 22, 2016. It was after the crash that we realized too little number of people are aware of the NJ State #77 Aggressive Driving Program.

 
 

In Memoriam

Tim affectionately known as "Coach" was a father, husband, softball coach, high school teacher, & friend. He was an avid fan of the NY Giants, NY Mets, Rutgers Football & Basketball and The Grateful Dead. He was fiercely dedicated to his daughters & wife. Tim, graduating from a Jesuit High School exemplified being a "man for others" in every way possible.

Bridget was a 5 year old with an old soul. She was a sister, daughter, & friend with aspirations of being a graduate of Arizona State College and becoming a Cancer Curing Singing doctor. Bridget was extremely close to her best friend & big sister Ali. Her favorite song was Rachel Platton's "Fight Song" and Frozen's "Let It Go". Bridie Bear, as her daddy called her, would light up any room she entered.
