Freestyle snowboard legend Jeremy Jones, no relation to big mountain rider Jeremy Jones, brother of TGR co-founders Todd and Steve Jones, was injured in a snowboarding accident in the Utah backcountry yesterday. A GoFundMe has been set up to support Jones's unexpected medical bills. Our thoughts go out to Jeremy in this difficult time. 

Info from the GoFundMe:

On Wednesday January 11th, legendary freestyle snowboarder Jeremy Jones of Salt Lake City was in a snowboarding accident in the Utah Backcountry. As a result Jeremy suffered multiple broken bones in both of his legs and had to be Life Flighted to the nearest hospital to undergo emergency surgery. Usually Helicopter Rides and Snowboarding mean good things. This particular ride was good in that it got Jeremy the medical attention he needed quickly but the Heli ride and the injury have also brought enormous unexpected and unplanned expenses.

Jeremy’s influence and impact on the snowboard community and beyond is hard to capture in a few words. His 20+ year career as a professional is filled with Progression, Innovation, and Style. A dedicated ambassador to the sport, role model for both young and old, and a committed family man, Jeremy Jones now needs our help. Now is your chance to support a true legend and give back to someone who has given so much to the sport and lifestyle of Snowboarding. Please donate what you can to help Jeremy get back on his feet.

Thoughts with Jeremy. Just curious, can ObamaCare help towards treatment?

    Better hope for Trumpcare now. Right…

Is Burton writing a check for a snowboard legend or are they just into politics now?

Good healing vibes to ya JJ
