Rest in Power: Jason Parratt — bird

*STAFF, would you kindly let this ride in Catchall for a bit?  I’d really appreciate it.

Brothers and sisters, just got off the phone with Caleb and Ted, confirmed by family on Facebook, and learned that Jason Parratt, aka bird, died of a heart attack while track racing his car tonight.  I’m franking in disbelief over here.  This one really hurts, as Jason was a great father and friend.

He’s pictured here on the right, behind me.  This was during this summer’s XTCX Ride.

I’m asking that the community pay tribute to a great man and member of the BMX community through anything positive — memories, pictures, whatever — about him.  WHEREVER YOU ARE, RIDE ON IN POWER!!!

This hurts!!

Jason was one of the coolest dudes I’ve met from here, his kids are awesome Jason and the boys were one of the reasons I do the Indiana show. He will be missed greatly.

Here's one from the crosstown ride I did with y'all. Never really knew him, but we are all brothers/family in BMX.
