Tim & Jen

They are high school sweethearts.  Jen actually “liked” Tim first.  They were in keyboarding class together.  It all started out at the homecoming dance on October 2, 1992.  Jen and Tim went to the dance and officially started “going steady” October 23, 1992.

Their Daughters

Tim and Jen have three daughters – Makayla, Katelyn and Alyssa.  Tim and Jen stay busy by attending volleyball games, basketball games, track meets, band concert and one-act plays.  The three girls love having friends over to the “Schut House” and there is a never a dull moment at the Schuts.


After nearly a year of trying to find what was wrong with Tim’s speech, they were referred to Mayo Clinic. On June 21, 2021 within 40 minutes, Tim was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Apraxia of Speech.  It is very rare—one in a million.  But Tim has not let this disease stop him, he’s done three podcasts, one interview and in April 2022, he will speak to the world-renowned doctors and researchers at Mayo Clinic.
