The Catch You Later Foundation is a small non profit organization that was formed shortly after the untimely and tragic deaths of father/husband Tim O’Donnell and 5 year old sister/daughter Bridget O’Donnell.

On a routine drive home from work on 2/22/2016 they were killed in a horrific 100% preventable car crash on the NJ Turnpike caused by an impaired driver.

It is our hope that we can educate the public via schools, police academies, and civic organizations about the ramifications of distracted and impaired driving as well as giving out small scholarships annually in memory of Tim and Bridget.

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

College is something Bridget wanted to do but sadly she does not have the chance.

Saving a life is as simple as focusing on the road when driving.

MORE signatures on Bridget’s jersey at the @otis_ojanderson24 and @rodney_hampton27 celebration the night before the ring of honor!

She should be here meeting these GIANTS herself but a drugged driver decided she was better off dead and her daddy too!

This is what it’s all about talking the TRUTH about distracted and impaired driving and the blunt truth…. Hopefully making an impact one student at a time and from the looks of it we accomplished it.

Thank you Roz Thompson for always including us!

Another wedding anniversary I sit alone thinking “what if”. Today would have been our 14th wedding anniversary, (the first of 3 weddings) however the events of 2/22/16 and the CHOICE someone made to drive impaired ended further anniversaries. 😢💔

Time does NOT heal all wounds please don’t ever say that.

@cashmancslaw you will never understand what you did 14 years ago this day By marrying us at the MED it was the perfect evening and you were the perfect person to do it, thank you for the memories, I love you!

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.
