Tom is awesome, but once raptor is done he’s no longer essential for BFR. I do, however, expect SpaceX to find more work for Tom, like working on a variable mix hydrolox engine or even a nuclear thermal rocket engine. But in the meantime they’ll probably want to keep pushing the chamber pressure of Raptor higher and higher.

Still, I think Gwynne and Elon are more fundamentally important for the future of SpaceX.

Gwynne's the only one out of the trio that expressed an interest in interstellar travel as far as I know, which is amusing given her clear level headedness when running the business.
Maybe you're just underestimating interstellar travel. :)
