We have just learned of the passing of Jake Piasecki. We were honored to feature Jake on our Spring 2006 cover. Jake was a true ripper and had a huge amount of energy.Jake passed away on October 20th.  Authorities suspect it was suicide. If you or anyone you know are contemplating suicide, I urge you to seek help.  You can read about the details here: Here’s a great little clip from the Short Bus Chronicles from Sector 9 that features Jake riding and playing guitar. A Go Fund Me Campaign has been set up to help pay for funeral expenses. Our sincere condolences to Jake’s friends and family at this difficult time.
