San Francisco, CA – Thrasher Skateboarding Magazine’s longtime Editor-In-Chief Jake Phelps died instantly on Thursday (March 14) at 56.
Thrasher co-founder Tony Vitello broke the information in a prolonged Instagram submit and eloquently touched on Phelp’s legacy.
“Jake Phelps was 100% skateboarder, however that label sells him method too quick, as a result of past his monumental affect in our world, he was actually a person past this world,” Vitello wrote partly. “When family members move we generally mythologize about their full lives wealthy in friendships and experiences.
“Sometimes we have to speak ourselves into believing all of it. It makes us really feel higher, and helps us address the loss. Well, within the case of Jake, the duty turns into wrapping your head round simply what number of lives one individual may presumably reside. He actually did see all of it, do all of it, and that unimaginable mind of his may relish each final element.”
