Joe and Tresa Shafer Owens passed away yesterday in a tragic hot air balloon accident. They were wonderful people who loved each other very much. I cannot express how great of a blessing they both were to their family and friends. They adored their children and grandchildren, and loved nothing more than spending time with them. Joe worked hard to provide for his family and was always willing to lend an extra hand to anyone in need. Tresa had a long time career at TigerLand Preschool and made an amazing difference in the lives of the hundreds of children she cared for, their families and also her co-workers and friends. So quick to offer up a prayer or a friendly greeting, they will forever be missed by the people who loved them. Their smiles, hugs, and laughs will be never forgotten. Please consider donating to help their families with funeral expenses. The money donated will be used solely for the memorial/funeral expenses for Joe and Tresa. The money will be given to their daughters April Adams and Ashley Burges. Thank you very much for helping this wonderful family during this terrible time.

Both Tresa and April were my son's teachers at TigerLand. He is now going into 1st grade so it wasn't that long ago. Tresa always had a smile on her face and loved the kids Joe was always around helping out and was obviously a loving husband and father (even if it did take bit for my son to warm up to him!). My heart breaks for their family ... sending prayers and condolences their way. They were wonderful people and truly outstanding members of the Katy Community.

I love you mom Tresa and Joe. Y'all went too too soon. I still feel like this is a dream. R. I. P. I loved y'all like y'all were my own family. It's just so hard to believe that such an amazing couple was taken from us. April, bubbba, and Ashley I love y'all. Y'all are my siblings that I never had.
