I am so sorry that Im just seeing that Mr. Dortch had passed. I was so honored that he and his amazing organization honored me in 2021 during Covid and managed to still do a ceremony online. I’m sorry I will never get an opportunity to meet him, shake his hand and say Thank you! My condolences to his family! God bless you and my prayers are with you! 🙏🏽
My deepest condolences to the Dortch family.  Tommy was a true gentleman and a scholar.  I met him during a lunch meeting hosted by the Atlanta Business League.  He was a charismatic and intellectual  speaker.  May he rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to the Dortch family.  Tommy used his many gifts to make life better for others, and it was a privilege to know him as a friend and support his wonderful work. He had the rare ability to show genuine interest in everyone he met, which made him an ideal mentor and advocate for youth and all. Tommy leaves a legacy of leadership that will live on through the work of 100 Black Men and the many young people whom the organization has empowered to become their best selves. His commitment to the community and to the next generation provides a model for all of us, and it is an honor and blessing to have known him.  
My sincerest condolences to the Dortch family at this time. I know you will miss his presence. I encourage you to embrace the wonderful memories Tommy has left with you and many around the world. He was a leader, a visionary. He inspired so many and encouraged us to walk in excellence. I know He's with God and the angels are rejoicing to receive this awesome man. Prayers and Blessings!!!!

Mrs. Dortch and Tre,

My heart grieves with you in this great loss. You're an amazing family and I will always be here for you all to support in any way I can. Continuing to keep you all in prayer. Hugs.

As I think of Thomas W. Dortch Jr. a smile comes to my face. He was a father figure for those who had no father, a man of distinction for us who had fathers. His kindness was dignified. His willingness to help the known and the unknown was his Mercy and Grace to humanity. He has earned his home in heaven.
