This season MichiganBoarder.com and it’s team is dedicating their season to the memory of Jacob Clute.
Jacob Ryan Clute Age: 21 Born: Sept 5, 1991 – August 4, 2013
Aside from being one of the most dedicated Death Riders and Rome SDS supporters, Jake was one of the nicest guys you would ever come across on and off the hill. Always down to ride anything with anyone who was strapped to a board. Jake was all about having fun when he rode his snowboard, period. Off the hill, Jake enjoyed working on cars, beating the hell out of those cars while two tracking, skateboarding, and most of all spending time with his son Sawyer. Jake was the definition of a ‘rad dad’ and anyone who had the pleasure of riding, hanging with, or simply meeting him will never forget the energy he had about himself. For now, Jake Clute is riding the most top secret stashes imaginable waiting for us all to come take some turns. Shred ‘Til Dead.
To honor Jake’s memory and support his son, Sawyer, please consider donating to the Jacob Clute Memorial at St. Francis Credit Union(Petoskey, Mi). Any donation will go to establishing a memorial scholarship fund for Sawyer’s college education.
Sawyer is currently four years old.
Thank You and have a fun safe season.
