Was so sorry to hear about the passing of John in November. John was a kind gentle man to our young son, myself and wife when he was our neighbor during his playing days in Cleveland. Rest In Peace, John

My deepest condolences to the entire Thierry family for this sudden passing, of a true gentleman.
Having gotten to know JT so well over the years, his gentle approach and professionalism with everyone, was truly inspiring.
JT was the type of guy, you instantly liked.
I enjoyed our laughs and conversations my friend.
You are watching down on us all from the great big Stadium in the sky!

A special prayer goes out for the Thierry Family. May God grant you peace that surpasses all understanding. I attended Alcorn State University with John from 1990-1992. He had such a kind spirit. His mark on the world will truly be missed.

I had the incredible honor of playing a round of golf with John (who I've since called "My Boy JT"), at a charity outing. He was SO nice and such a gentleman. I loved hearing stories about his playing days. He was so proud of his family and talked about them a lot, too. Rest in peace, JT. The world is a better place because you were in it.

Thierry was a nice guy on and off the field. I enjoyed being in honor classes with him on the yard and my husband and brother enjoyed playing football with him at Alcorn. And he was a great friend. To his family, thank you for sharing him with us. Rest in peace, power, and paradise Thierry.
