Tammi Jones Christopherson, 43, formerly of Akron (Coventry), passed away unexpectedly Oct 19, 2015 in Tampa, Florida.

She was a loving mother and will be missed by her two daughters, Katie and Isabelle and their father, Tim Christopherson. She was the cherished daughter of Victoria Fiume (Chance) and sister to Bill, Kelsey, Terri, Jeremy, Heather, Jason, Jamie and Stacey.

Tammi's daughters meant the world to her. She was a hardworking, pro-active entrepreneur, full of life and energy. As the life of the party, she was always quick to crack a joke. Tammi always stood up for what she believed in and she was always willing to lend a helping hand to someone in need. Tammi loved South Carolina, the beach, furniture, decorating, her furniture stores, reading and her family and friends. Tammi will be greatly missed and loved forever.

Memories of her life and those she deeply touched will always be in our hearts and never forgotten.

Family and friends will gather for a Celebration of Life on Friday, October 30th from 6 to 9 p.m. at the John Torok Community Center in the City of Green next to the fire station at 4224 Massillon Rd., North Canton, 44720.

My deepest condolences to Tammi's family! I was friends with Tammi and Terry in middle school. I was good friends with Tammi when her dad passed away and am saddened to hear about Tammi's death. She was always such a joy to be around and yes that sense of humor she has had for a long time. May you rest in peace Tammi! Prayers for her family, you have all been through a lot!

The flame

From the first moment I met Tammi, when she came to interview at the law firm where I was working, she shook my hand with a vigor and contagious energy, Tammi Jones Christopherson, nice to meet you!!, I knew that I liked her instantly and that we would become great friends.

We proceeded to get to know each other through work and becoming friends as couples they were our best couple' friends. We did what many couples in their 20s did together laughed at everything including each other, went out to eat, had each other over for a hundred dinners, shared holidays and vacations, dreams and sorrows and our stories with each other.

Tammi's flame burned hot and she lit up a room with her energy, laugh, humor, love and she hugged like a freight train. I think I have always compared all hugs to hers and resolve to give Tammi hugs to everyone I love as long as I am able to give them.

She loved a cold beer, She couldn't go to the bathroom in the ocean not sure if it was the ocean itself or the three of us sitting in lounge chairs staring out at her that gave her performance anxiety.

She barely wore a stitch of makeup, she looked and dressed like a Land's End cover girl.

She had a constantly churning burning entreprenurial mind and seemed to have more energy than the bunny. She said f' a lot :) - in a funny way! She was no 'baloney', no frills, and SO damned funny. (Sometimes inappropriately so to the faint of heart :).

The first time she made us appetizers, she used the Pillsbury Crescent dough and wrapped it around meat of some kind but didn't know you had to bake it.

We were broke together, successful together.

I slept in their guestroom one night a week for a year while finishing law school and commuting to Columbia from Greenville.

We were pregnant with our first (my only) at the same time she delivered Katie Jones Christopherson on the fourth of July smartaleck-ing all the way through the video that Tim was shooting even right after childbirth.

We propped Connor and Katie up on the couch together when they were months/weeks old they stole each other's pacifiers as pre-toddlers

We laughed until we cried with them many times. Lifelong friends I couldn't imagine a time when we would not be part of each other's world.

She LOVED her Katie and Isabelle passionately - her pride and joy.

I dreamed last night that she was with me and I was incredulous that she was O.K.!? I told her that everyone thought that she was gone ... and she reassured me that she was still here...one of those dreams where you wake up confused because it seemed so real.

Tammi, I miss you and I miss knowing that I can reach out and talk to you.

I am here for your girls as an adoptive Aunt :) if i can ever do or be anything to them ... and to show them pictures and tell them stories about their wonderful Mom.

I have never met Tammi nor have I heard of her prior to today. I came across her death by a strange route but I am really saddened by what am reading. I hope that all you guys left behind gain some resolution in what has happened my heart goes out to you all.

Tammi was my big sister, and as I got older she was my role model. Tammi was always full of ideas and ready for anything. It was more important for Tammi to stick up for what was right, then go with the crowd. Standing up for what was right made life more difficult for Tammi, but she never backed down. Tammi was a generous person with, or without money. Tammi was always willing to listen and be there for you. Tammi always had something positive to say when it was needed most. Tammi had an endless energy that always amazed me. She did so much in such little time. When I lived in SC, she was by far the best mother that I have ever seen. The undivided attention, love, and devotion that she had just for her girls was unbelievable. Tammi will be missed so deeply. The Jones family will be a lot quieter without her. Even though Tammi is gone too soon, she definitely accomplished a lot and left a ton of memories for her daughters and family. Tammi taught us all a lot of lessons, and hopefully something good will come out of the memories and life she lived.

I am so sorry that your life ended so soon. You did not deserve any of this. You will always be my inspiration. I will miss you so much! I love you so much Tammmi! You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten.

Tell the aliens hi for me ;) (inside joke :) )

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Tammi. She and Terri were such awesome little ladies when they would accompany Jeremy to my house so that he could practice baseball with my sons, Rodney and Roger. It was a great honor to coach Jeremy and to meet all of the really nice members of the Jones family. May God bless you all with comfort and strength during this and all future bad times.

Tammi and Terri were in my 4th/5th grade class at Cottage Grove School. It was a pleasure to have her in class. Even though its been over 30 years, I remember her infectious smile and great sense of humor. My condolences to the Jones family.

I will really miss my sister Tammi. I'm so sad that she took this way out in order to get peace.
But I'm also glad that she's no longer suffering.
She was always very hospitable and generous when she had the means to do so. And that is a quality I always admired about Tammi. Growing up she always had a way of making you laugh. She was very humorous. Always making light of things in ways I never thought of. She had a funny way of looking at life.

My only comfort now is knowing that she is not suffering anymore. And I believe that I will see her again in the resurrection on Earth that Jesus spoke about in John 5:28, 29 and 2Peter 3:13. And I look forward to that time when God will swallow up death forever and wipe the tears from our faces for good. Isaiah 25:8, Revelation 21:3,4

I hope she knew how much I loved her. I look forward to telling her in the resurrection in the Paradise Earth to come. I really wish she would've reached out to someone so that she could've been reassured of her value and worth. And how needed she was as a mother, sister and daughther.

Until I see her again, I will miss her dearly.
