Jim was a dear friend and colleague for many years at Burlington HS. Talking with Jim at his home in Rowley convinded us to but our home in Groveland because they just loved that part of the state. Jim was the happiest guy I ever met and when he was taken from us the world became a slightly darker place.

Mr. Trentini was a great man, teacher and coach. I will always remember his great smile and care, for family, friends, neighbors and students.

God bless...

Mr. T You Will Always Be My Hero.......... Thinking of you today

*** Posted by David Peterson Class of 1980 on 2011-09-11 ***

Today we remember 10 years since our beloved Mr. Trentini was taken from us. I still remember like it was yesterday what he taught me in our health class in regards to how the human body worked and how to keep it going with CPR. I can still hear clearly in my mind his kind, gentle voice and words of encouragement to do better each day, just as much as I remember his ever present smile, and yeah his jogging shorts too. My life was truly blessed because he pruned it early as I was becoming a man. He lit my passion flame to serve, which I will take into my grave. God bless you Mr. T. You are always in my mind, my work, my life.

Coach, as many of us are on this day, I am remembering your indomitable spirit and the passion you brought to coaching, and teaching, and to life in general. On this day each year, and at other times when things arenít running smoothly, I cheered as I think of the football awards night in 1976 and the fit of laughter you had on stage. I can see you trying, and failing, to hold back the giggles and how it continued on for quite some time, holding up the proceedings.

However, it wasnít just your laughter on stage that was so memorable, but the contagious, ripple effect that swept through the audience. You had us all laughing. That is the metaphor of your life. A ripple effect of good humor, advice, and learning that continues to spread from each one of us that you touched.

Mr. T, I thought of you and your wife today 9/11/11. I was teaching my 11 and 6 year old about the events that changed the world 10 years ago. I told them about what a great teacher and coach your where. How your black board was the cleanist in the school. How you would where shorts on the coldest days on game day during football. How a true teacher can make a difference. NEVER FORGET! CLASS OF 1980 BHS. YOUR A HERO.!

Mr. T. was my student teaching mentor in 1973 at BHS. I fondly remember his meaningful guidance and kind words about my performance as a student teacher. He had a tremendous impact on me as a teacher/coach as I recently retired as a teacher/coach for 35 years. Mr. T. was a teacher who cared so much about his students and helped give me the confidence needed to build a life in education. Thank you for all you did to help others on this 10th anniversary of 911. God Bless.

My sister and I worked with Jim Trentini at Gloucester. He was such a treasure who had a great kindness and an excellent sense of humor. He was always so upbeat and he always told us shaggy dog stories which we dutifully listened to. What was great about those stories was watching his face light up when he told them. He could always make us smile and sometimes laugh. What a great man he was!

I knew Mr. Trentini briefly when he was teaching Physical Education at the old Roberts Junior High in Medford back around 1966 or so. I do not have any stories or memories to share other than the fact that he was quite possibly the only victim of the 9-11-2001 disaster that I actually crossed paths with in my life.

im so sorry about ur loss to the whole family

Mr Trentini was a great man. He was so kind and caring to all of us at Burlington High School. I had the pleasure of being a student in his CPR class. He taught with such a passion and made sure everyone picked up on his message. I remember Mr Trentini telling a story (someone from the school had passed away) and crying in front of the class. It was not typical to see this happen but that was Jim. He was just so compassionate. I remember not doing so well and he picked up on these things. He would put his hand on your shoulder and without words knew he felt for you. Every anniversary I think about Mr Trentini and his family. Jim had a great impact and I am very thankful for having the pleasure of knowing him.

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
