Joe and Tresa Shafer Owens are among the victims of the balloon crash.
For the past 24-years, Tresa was a teacher at Tiger Land Pre-School in Katy, CBS affiliate KHOU reported.
"Tresa is the lady that always had an answer for everything," explained Jane Toevs, director of Tiger Land. "She just loves all of them [children]. She loves them. She adored them. The parents see her as not only a mother but a grandmother too."
Her husband, Joe, was also very well-known at the school. Cheryl Myer, assistant director of Tiger Land, explained that even the he had a full-time job, he was always willing to help out, KHOU reported.
"If something needed to be fixed here... Tresa would say, 'Hey! I'll get Joe. Joe will be here," said Myer.
"He's a very hard working, caring, loving person," added Toevs.
Joe and Tresa Shafer Owens leave behind three children and four grandchildren. One of their daughters is also a teacher at the school.
