RIP JEREMY LUSK FMX 2008 WORLD CHAMPION! A TRUE WARRIOR HAS RISEN
My condolences and prayers go out to the family and friends of Jeremy Lusk Freestyle Motorcross 2008 World Champion who died after being hospitalized in Costa Rica after an stunt motocross accident where he landed headfirst in a Hart Attack Backflip. A sad and tragic loss of a brave warrior.
Jeremy was a stand up guy, real-people and down to earth as it gets when I had the honor to meet him and his teamates on the Metal Mulisha team in Pomona at the LG Freestyle Motorcross World Championship 2007. Jeremy Lusk was a 22 year old new rising star on the Metal Mulisha team at the time. Jeremy Lusk and I took a few photos in front of his trailer, which was really a kick-ass Rock Star Energy Drink tourbus. I also remembered the Guava flavored Rock Star Energy Juice Drink which I was introduced to that day at catering. I would think of Jeremy Lusk everytime I had one after that. It was great to see the success he had in the year that followed, being #1 in his sport. I performed with Andy Walo, Mitch Perry, Roger Bueno and Michael Leasure at the LG Freestyle Motorcross World Championship 2007 event on the final day of LA County Fair 2007 at Pomona Fairgrounds. I will always remember Jeremy Lusk as a real authentic person who pushed all limits. I will miss getting the chance to meet up with him again at another great event like that. I am thankful that our paths crossed and was blown away that he appreciated what I did too. Jeremy Lusk you will always be IMMORTAL!!!! and without FEAR!!!!
