Press Release

Stockton, CA – Congressman Jerry McNerney (CA-09) issued the following statement in response to the death of Tim Egkan, chief brand officer for Ten Space Developers:

“I am deeply saddened by the senseless and tragic death of Tim Egkan. I had the pleasure of meeting Tim a few times around Stockton. He cared deeply about our community and was a fierce believer in its potential and in what the future could hold for all Stocktonians. Tim was a young man with a transformative vision for what this community could be. He saw a vibrant downtown community in the heart of the city bustling with local businesses, housing, shops, and restaurants.  Just prior to his passing, Tim was doing what he does best – sharing his vision and excitement about all of Stockton’s possibilities with artisans and entrepreneurs and encouraging them to relocate to the community. Tim was a true champion for Stockton taken far too soon, and my thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time. It is my hope that in response to Tim’s death we can all work together to realize his vision for a stronger, brighter Stockton.”
