Boeing engineer | Aerothermodynamics | Class of 2004

An Illini love story, tree-on-the-Quad-in-front-of-the-Henry-Administration-Building edition:

That’s where future Boeing engineer Tim Franklin (’04) asked out his bride to be “over a couple of Jimmy John’s sandwiches on St. Patrick’s Day.” 

(The real one, he’s quick to note, not Unofficial).

“We’ve now been married for almost nine years with a 3-year-old son, Max, that loves the Illini and a dog named Illie. The U of I was the greatest four-and-a-half years of my life and our family loves going back to campus and reminiscing on our time there.”
