U.S. Navy Special Warfare Operator Petty Officer 1st Class (SEAL/Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist) Jon "JT" Thomas TuMileson, 35, of Rockford, IA, assigned to an East Coast-based Naval Special Warfare unit, died on August 6, 2011, in Wardak province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when his helicopter crashed.

He is survived by his parents George and Kathy TuMileson, Joy and Scott McMeekan, sisters Kristie and Joy, and his dog Hawkeye.

The "Tumilson" Hero WOD was first posted on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Wednesday, July 4, 2012 (120704). The name of the workout, which has since been adopted by gyms and athletes around the world, is spelled slightly differently than JT's last name, TuMileson. It's not clear if this difference in spelling was intentional or not.
