RIP Jeremy Lusk

It is with great sadness that we report Jeremy Lusk succumbed to his injures tonight at 11:03pm PST. He was surrounded by his loving Mother and father, Chuck & Gina Lusk, his wonderful wife Lauren, his mother and father in law Lyne & Larry along with his closest Mulisha friends Brian Deegan, Ryan Hagy, Cameron Steele & Erik Apple. He is now with our Heavenly Father and is at peace. We know he is performing sick tricks for all those in Heaven to crowds greater than we have ever seen. We will miss you Pitbull!

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

We will provide further updates on arrangements when we get them.

Here is a brief tribute video that a fan put together. Jeremy will be sorely missed.

Also, don't forget to donate to the Athlete Recovery Fund. Information below. Every $ helps. Big or small. We can all work together to help a fallen friend.


Hey everyone. Will probably be a little quiet tonight. Last we heard they plan to start weaning him off meds in the morning. So keep the prayers up. This is a critical time. Jeremy is a Pitbull and a fighter. Everyones prayers, thoughts, encouragements and comments are helping more than you can imagine. 

Pray for the swelling to go down, doctors who are anointed with knowledge of what to do, strength for the family and no permanent damage to any part of his body.


An emergency fund to help defer the costs of Jeremy Lusk's medical care has already been established and is set up to take donations immediately.

Through the quick-moving efforts of the Athlete Recovery Fund, those interested in making a donation may do so by visiting and clicking on the “make a donation” button. All donations made through this website, starting TODAY, are earmarked directly for Jeremy Lusk's care!

Financial arrangements are being put into place to pay for the Medi-Vac international air transportation that Jeremy will need once he is stable and can be transferred to a leading United States-based Head Trauma Center.

It is likely that these funds will be needed within the next few days; therefore immediate donations are certainly appreciated.

The Athlete Recovery Fund was established in 2007 and its function is to provide professional athletes in BMX, FMX and Skate Boarding with financial support after severe injury and granting funds for rehabilitation, equipment, long-term disability and educational scholarships.

Update #4

As of right now Jeremy is just resting. It may be a while before we hear an update as they have now been able to close his skull and will await the swelling to go down further. They will then be able to assess any other issues Jeremy may be having. As mentioned there seems to be no breaks in his neck and jaw. Once they stabilize him, a CT scan will be done on his spine. Pray there is no damage there.

As soon as we hear more, it will get posted. The family really appreciates everyones prayers and support. It means a lot in times like these. Feel free to leave comments for Jeremy and the Lusk family.

Update #3

Ok, more good news.

1:40pm 2/8/2009

They were able to close his skull, the swelling went down enough!
Now it is just a healing process.
If they can air-vac him out it will be to Miami with the family, hopefully by end of week.

Update #2

*** Update 12:30pm PST 2/8/2009
-The swelling is going down. Great news!
-Next 24 hrs will start weening him off meds to see what the brain activity is like.
-Lauren is by his side.
-No broken neck or jaw looks like. They will not be able to do a CT scan of spine for a few days.
-As soon as Jeremy Stabilizes they plan to move him to the states.
-Keep praying!

Update #1

**Update what we have heard so far as of 8am PST 2/8/09:
-He made it through the surgery which was great because they only gave a 5% chance of that.
-They had to drain a hematoma from the skull.
-He has an enlarged brain so they could not close his skull back up, they have to wait for swelling to go down.
-The next 24 hours is critical, so please keep praying! He did get a fever but they are controlling that.
-The promoter has been great getting stuff organized for the family. Lauren and his dad will have a phone line to update people from the hospital.
-It has been about 7 hours since the surgery. Some family is there already whole others are trying to get emergency passports. Please pray for favor in that situation as well.
-They are not even attempting to work on anything else right now, the most important is to get him stabilized.
