The Ty2 Foundation

The Ty2 Foundation has been created as a lasting memorial to the life of Ty Osman, II.  Ty had a heart for others and was a light to everyone around him.  The foundation will allow his light to shine forever and will serve the charities that profoundly impacted his life.

Ty's departure leaves a gaping hole in the hearts of those who love him, but also in the places and situations where he loved to work. Every kind word, every prayer spoken on behalf of him and his family is so deeply appreciated. But Ty's work isn't done. In his honor, the Ty2Foundation will make contributions to make sure that the good work continues. As an organ donor, Ty showed his care for others. Even through his death, he chose to give a better life to those around him. This foundation will carry that beautiful spirit far into the future.

Ty, Nancy, Adair and Kendall have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support they have received.  This foundation has been established as their way of giving back. Many people and organizations have already stepped forward to provide support. This site will frequently provide updates about the foundation's efforts to honor Ty's life, while giving the glory to our Lord.

Ty’s Story

Ty was with friends on spring break road trip to Ft. Worth, Texas in March 2012. Coming upon another car accident ahead of them, Ty stopped his truck to check on the other victims. A passing car hit Ty’s truck, causing it to strike Ty. He passed away from the severe injuries sustained.

Ty Osman was a friend to everyone, always smiling and making others laugh. Ty had a true heart for others. He loved people. While Ty’s life here was way too short, he gave us all a lesson in how to be a friend. He excelled at treating people right. Rich or poor, young or old, and no one was a stranger. He loved the outdoors – to hunt, to fish, to just be outside any time. Ty also enjoyed sports – all types of sports, from football to bowling, he enjoyed them all. And he liked to work; work hard, whether it was on a widows’ home for Both Hands or a mission trip at the Medina Children’s home, Ty never shied away from a difficult task. In fact he welcomed a challenge. He touched the lives of so many with his never-ending smile and constant compassion. Ty loved the Lord. His last Bible verse Tweet was Psalms 73:26- ‘My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.’”

I didn't get the chance to know Ty for very long. I met him halfway through first semester and ever since the first time we met I've always enjoyed being around him. One thing that always stood out to me is how passionate he was towards everyone around him....
