RIP IN PEACE: Jon Comer

Today is a very sad day for the Dallas skateboarding community and for all of the people Jon touched with his kind heart. He inspired us all with his true passion and love for skateboarding and life. A soft spoken, humble man, Jon had a fierce dedication and approach with the way he skated. He will be sorely missed by everyone who was in his presence, all of the kids he inspired and thousands of others who only knew of him. You will live in our hearts and memories forever, Jon. Will miss you, my friend. —Mike Crum

 

Jon was a pioneering champion for disabled skaters and practically made his invisible with an attitude and attack on the board true to his Texas roots. He knew there were others in way worse situations. Glad to have had some great sessions with you. Our deepest condolences to the Comer family. –Sam Hitz

    It’s important to the Raemers family that people know Ben's cause of death. In his sister's words, “If the tragedy of losing my Benny can save others then that’s a positive."

    RIP IN PEACE: Mark "Monk" Hubbard
    My friend Roger Mark Hubbard died June 8, 2018. Talk about skateboard legends, this dude saw his destiny. Marty was a true skateboard pioneer. Talk about doing it yourself, this dude did it all. He’s gone but his legend will live forever. I miss him, and there ain’t nobody like him. Once again, rest in peace. Roger Mark Hubbard 1970-2018.–Jake Phelps

    RIP IN PEACE: Dylan Rieder
    Born to ride a skateboard? It’s a seemingly silly concept when you think about it, but Dylan Rieder made us believe it. That man was absolutely, positively, a gift. Power, style, grace - he had it all. Our thoughts are with his family and friends in this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Dylan Rieder. We will all miss you, each day more than the next.
