Update #5

Here are the facts, to date, as we know them as of moments ago:

-Jeremy remains in a medically induced coma.
-He has been stabilized, but remains in very critical condition in the Calderon Intensive Care Unit in San Jose, Costa Rica.
-Doctors have been forced to lower Jeremy's core body temperature to continue to treat the swelling on his brain.
-He continues to have brain function.
-Plans have already been made for Jeremy to be transferred, via private air ambulance, to one of the leading brain trauma centers in the US, pending a scheduled early morning conference with attending physicians, surgeons and family.
-Jeremy's parents, Chuck and Gina Lusk left Los Angeles this morning and have just arrived in Costa Rica.

Please remember 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 www.athleterecoveryfund.com and clicking on the “make a donation” button. All donations made through this website are earmarked directly for Jeremy's care.

  1. We are all praying in Costa Rica for Jeremy's wellness, I am praying that he can get out of this situation, he is a very strong person. I would like to help you guys by recommending an air ambulance service:

    They have transported many many people out of Costa Rica as I have seen them myself and offer competetive pricing, they have some of the most experienced personnel in the industry and are based at nearby Ft. Lauderdale Executive. I am involved with airport operations and wanted to be of a small help for Jeremy. Goodspeed my friend!

  7. God bless you jeremy.
    Costa rica medics need a first aid lesson on how to EVALUATE and THEN Move an injured person. NBC video showed the first person nexxt to him move arm and roll him over before anything else. The medical treatment was and sad and painful to watch as the accident.

  10. My deepest sympathy. He was so young, but I am glad to know that he accepted Christ in his heart. We know he is an angel in heaven. My God comfort the family during these difficult times, and know that one day you will see him again. God Bless you all.
