Tris “Duke” Carpenter


Julie Ann Carpenter passed away in February, 2009 from metastatic breast cancer.

Julie and I met shortly after I arrived in Los Angeles in 2000.  We were married for nearly five years, and she was my best friend and co-conspirator. 

On Julie’s passing, I created the Julie Ann Carpenter Memorial Fund to assist other women with breast cancer who shared the same fighting spirit Julie had.  You can click here to see what we do and make a contribution to help women who are truly in need.
