With the first annual benefit show held at the Metro Chicago, only weeks after his passing showing how much he was not only loved here in Chicago, but worldwide.
The Timothy Francis Jones Foundation was founded to promote self-health awareness amongst men. Timbuck2 was not only one of the greatest and most respected DJ’s to grace our hometown of Chicago, but Hip-Hop culture ever, period. Though remembered mostly for how many lives he touched through his music. Whether through his unique technique on the turntables, through his many Hip-Hop influences or his gift for finding new Chicago talent on the local radio and being one of the biggest supporters of the big Chicago Hip-Hop movement, he definitely left his mark, which is still hugely felt today. That almost underscores the fact of how Tim was also one of the most kind, warm-hearted, loving, caring and great humans you could ever meet too. Which is why his untimely loss at such a young age was felt by so many and even is still till this very day.
So as the Timothy Francis Jones Foundation celebrates not only the life of Timbuck2, but the following great and impact full Chicago DJ’s as well; Mustafa Rocks, Boi Jeanius, DJ Elz, DJ Oreo, Jay Illa, DJ Word and Mike P.
