Tyler Alvarado: About the Author

Tyler Alvarado

Tyler Alvarado (1984 - 2020) will always be remembered for the contributions he made to Inspectioneering.  Tyler was known for his magnetic personality and unique ability to connect with people from all walks of life. He was a natural leader who made the people around him better. Inspectioneering would not be what it is today without his leadership, passion, and dedication to advancing the industry we’ve all grown to love.

To honor his legacy, we have created the Tyler Alvarado Foundation, a non-profit organization that will continue Tyler’s mission of advancing the inspection and mechanical integrity industry through scholarships, grants, and other educational and training programs. Additionally, the foundation will create and support initiatives that benefit his local community and veteran support programs. To pledge a donation, please visit
