As I am sitting in my chair browsing about the christening of the USS New York on March 1st, 2008, I then start to remember Mrs. Trentini and realize that I will never forget her. I attended Triton High with her son, Jimmy, back in 1982. I know she is looking down on all the students of Triton High with that special smile which she carried every day while she worked at Triton High. Mrs. Trentini and her family will always be in my prayers!

I just happened to be looking through a list of 9/11 victims (I have a friend who died in one of the towers) and was heartbroken when I came across the Trentini name--I didn't know Mary or Jim, but I knew their son, Jimmy, when we were really young. (We were pen pals for a while.) I was so sad to hear about the family's loss. They sound like amazing people who impacted this world so positively. God bless.

Jim was my mentor when I started teaching at BHS. One of the nicest people I have ever met. We ended up becoming close and he actually took a summer and painted my grandmothers house.
He is surely missed by all that knew him.
May he rest in peace.

I just wanted to add: I am a 1976 graduate of BHS, and I still remember Jim Trentini like it was yesterday, sitting in the sidelines while his football team was on the field, cheerleaders jumping. I miss him so much. God had a special place for you, Jim, you and your wife. May you rest in peace.

I am a handyman and was searching for stock photos to use in an advertisement. I did not know Mr. Trentini, but there was something about the photo that appealed to me, I think it was the smile on his face as he was working.  When I clicked on the photo of Mr. Trentini and arrived at this page it really made me think about how precious life is. I have had many jobs as a handyman that I thought of as a waste of my time. Now, I realize that there is no waste of time in life. Life is to be enjoyed and shared with friends and loved ones.

Jim was a colleague and friend for 25 years. He was a teacher, coach, and an extrodinary human being. I think of him often and miss him dearly. He taught my children and helped to build my house. These are constant reminders of an honorable and decent man. I wish I had known more like him.

Jim Trentini doing one of his summer jobs siding our house in 1988 and later painting it . Always a smile.

Mr. Trentini was my health teacher in the 10th grade in Burlington High. He also was very good friends with my Dad, Ray Lang, who was also a teacher there. I will always remember his quick smile and kindness. Also his crew cut! He used to let us rub it "if you're good". What a wonderful man, he is sorely missed.

Love to his family,
Lianne Viola

I graduated from Burlington High in 1979. Mr. Trentini was, far and away, one of the most popular teachers throughout my 4 years there. He was always joking and making me laugh. Everyone had long hair then - He wore his in a military buzzcut and it was always a source of conversation - his "retro" hairstyle. He told us when he was young - and dating - the girls loved his crewcut.  He said they would run their fingers through his hair - and get splinters! I remember laughing so hard when he said that - I almost fell off my chair! Several years later he had my younger sister, who was partially retarded, in his class. I will never forget his kindness and patience with her.  I would like his family and friends to know I am thinking of him on this day of rememberance. I feel fortunate to have known him - he was a very special man.  Blessings and Peace to all of you.

Mr. Trentini was the 10th-grade Health teacher for the Burlington, MA Class of 1986. I remember him as a very kind and helpful man. God bless.

Thinking of you, Mary and your family on this fourth anniversary.

Mr. Trentini - that is what I called him - he was my gym teacher in High School - Burlington (Ma.) High Class of 1980. He was very popular and all the kids loved him! I will remember him as always being fun, energetic and smiling all the time! God Bless to his Family.
