“I lost my disabled veteran ex-husband, yet still best friend of 30+ years, this past December. He was only 53-years old. A Pennsylvania native, Rich loved his Country & gave 20 years of service in the United States Air Force. He also loved his Steelers so much and bled Black & Gold! Our children and I would be so grateful and proud [to see him on Ben’s website]. Rich would be too. Thank you!” — Suzanne Zoller & the Zoller Family.
In commenting on why the mission of the foundation is so important to him, Roethlisberger said, “We’re very fortunate to be in the position that we are able to help these K-9 units. The work that is performed by the dogs and their handlers as well as the bond that is formed is incredible. We’re just thrilled to do our small part.”
“Finalized this pastel Ben Roethlisberger tribute today! Ben was so nice and a true class act. So happy he loved it. He said that it was, “So awesome” like 20 times, and his eyes and face lit up! So happy to share my talents with him and thank him personally for just being Big Ben!” — Tempy Moore.
“I taught myself how to draw from a very young age. I love adding details to pieces like this. This is probably my best piece to date. I learn something new every drawing still always learning. This is chalk pastel on Museum Ampersand Board. Took me approximately 600 hours on and off, mother of 2 teens & grade school art teacher.”
“I just wanted to say thank you so much to Ben for this moment. I have been a HUGE fan since his rookie year. My dream has always been to meet him and the Main Line Autograph event helped that finally come true. I was so nervous to actually meet him all I could say is, “hey”, Lol. But I will have the pictures and autograph to last a lifetime. My fiance, Jordan and I are so thankful. These will be going in our Steelers room! Once again, thank you Ben for making a dream come true.” — Heather Hickman.
