7/8/2021 - We have started to dispurse funds to Melissa Torrez. We spoke to her last night on the phone to tell her about the donations. She is very grateful for the donations to help with her during this challenging time. She is expected to go on the Memorial Run which is scheduled for July 24th.
Buy Jason and his family a round of beers.
We lost a dear friend to the off-road community today. Jason Torrez tragically lost his life in a motorcycle accident in Utah. Jason was an active member of several off-road groups as well as one of the founding members of the 775 Offroad Rescue and Recovery - a group dedicated to ensuring everyone gets home safely.
You could always find Jason helping people out on the trail. He was the one who would drop everything to go help someone in need. This included helping people work on their vehicles, offering rides as well as rescuing a stranded person on the trail. Jason was the one you wanted with you. He will truly be missed by many.
Jason is survived by his wife and daughter. This memorial fund will go towards funeral expenses as well as bringing him back home to Gardnerville, NV. Every dollar donated up to the first $1,100 will be matched, dollar for dollar.
Thank you in advance for your kindness.
