For the Rev. Paul Hadusek, the best story about Jason Timmerman involves a clothes dryer. A few years ago, Timmerman was selling his and a woman stopped by to ask about it. She mentioned that her dryer had broken. So Timmerman went to her house and repaired hers, rather than making a sale. Timmerman, 24, of Tracy, Minn., died Feb. 21 when a bomb detonated near his convoy in Baghdad. He was based in Montevideo. "He had a wonderful personality, just related to everyone and had such a big smile," said Roman Catholic Sister Teresita Schaefbauer. "He was very, very giving all the time I knew him." Timmerman built houses with Habitat for Humanity, served meals at a soup kitchen, helped with a Goodwill truck, sponsored a foster child overseas and helped paint the church. Timmerman was a high school math and computer teacher last year. He received a bachelor's degree in math education in 2002 and a master's in computer and education technology in 2004, both from Dakota State University. At the time of his deployment, he was a computer technician at Northstar Mutual Insurance Co. He is survived by his wife, Teresa.
