We've lost Jarrek! :(

Recommended Posts

I've been off and on this forum for awhile and just hearing about this after receiving an email regarding the match this afternoon. It's very emotional for me although I never did meet him in person. I do remember him as one of the original members and very active with this forum that helped bring our community together. What he did is amazing. Im glad that we will be honouring him this afternoon. RIP Jarrek. Deepest sympathies to his family.

I've just seen this as well. Very sad to pass at such a young age.

Jarrek had a huge influence on early football support in Toronto and Canada. Without some of those early-millennium innovators, who knows where we'd be today. Glad I got to meet him in 2002 for a summer of Toronto Lynx matches.

If you live in a smaller city without an MLS or CPL team, the best tribute you could give Jarrek would be to start a supporters' group for your local team.

I've just seen this after a long hiatus, and very shocked.

RIP Jarrek, my friend. 

Ya it was quite the shock to us all.
