In Memoriam: Tim Kern

Last October, Compass lost a beloved member of our family, Tim Kern.


Tim and his wife Stacy have been supporters of Compass since 1998. When daughters Madeline and Allison were young, they volunteered weekly with their mother in the CSO, learning the alphabet by helping to sort mail! Stacy served as chair of the Board of Directors through the challenging “earthquake” years. The Kerns have been generous donors, supporting the work of Compass through the annual auction, monthly giving, and involving their friends and church, Northminster Presbyterian, in our volunteer activities. Tim had an infectious laugh, a love of good coffee, a giving spirit, and a commitment to social justice. We, along with his family, will miss him.
Tim also had a fondness for doing laundry. In honor of this, Stacy is sponsoring the laundry room at the Nyer Urness House, to be named Tim’s Wash and Dry.
