A funeral service for Jay Adams will be held on the north side of Venice Pier on Saturday August 30th at 9:00 a.m.
Jay Adams died last Thursday while vacationing in Mexico with his family. Unfortunately, the costs involved with claiming and transporting a deceased body from another country are challenging and expensive. It has been reported that the Mexican Government wanted in excess of $10,000 to release the body for transport back to the United States. The Venice Skate Alliance has been raising money through their Facebook page here. They are close to having all the funds but additional donations are needed. You can get the information to contribute here.
It is expected to be a busy holiday weekend on the Saturday planned for the funeral so plan accordingly. To read more about Jay and his recent passing see our original story.
