    Wow that is a shame.I feel for his family.


    I was hoping for big things from him in future strongman comps.

    This was posted a little while ago on the Marunde Muscle Forum.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Friends, we suffered a great loss in the strongman community last evening. The Sequim Crew was doing what they do. Training hard and particularly training Jesse for the WSM contest in Anaheim. He died quickly and painlessly.

    The squat set was as follows:
    230kg x 8
    190kg x 8
    150kg x 8
    110kg x 8
    70kg x 8
    Followed immediately by:
    600# tire flip
    265# stone load
    All of this was done with no rest between sets. Rack, pull, go
    At the completion of these sets Jesse laid on his back, on the cold floor like normal. Breck and Sarge noticed that his breathing was laborious. Jesse became incoherent and stopped breathing. We administered cpr, called 911 and continued to resusitate until paramedics arrived. They set up the defibrillator, epinephrin, to no avail. He was worked on for over an hour between Breck, Sarge and the paramedics.

    These are the facts as it happened. We are deeply saddened by this tragic loss. We appreciate your support and prayers.

    The Sequim Crew

    i wonder if they'll do an autopsy to see exactly what happened... wonder if he had a pre-existing heart condition...

    I really don't know what to think. I'm assuming he didn't have any pre-existing conditions. Maybe the he overexerted himself to the point of his heart becoming out of rythm (palpitations), and then when it hit tac, his heart was literally too strong to slow down.

    It definitely sucks. He was an animal and part of that group of young competitive Americans that are on the rise in Strongman. I wish his family the best.

    Oh, man! Say it ain't so!! Seeing Jesse compete on ESPN in the WSM competitions was one major factor in me getting back into the gym a few years ago. This man was an animal. And at the same age as me, it's a real shame that it happened.

    My sincerest wishes go out to all he knew, loved, and touched in some special way.

    Thank Jesse, for all you've done for people like me.

    RIP. I have much respect for the powerlifters. Hopefully he'll find some tires to flip up there.

    Thats terrible, even worse that his friends were there and couldn't save him. I imagine it will be hard for them to have seen that. I'm glad he didnt suffer to much.

    He was to young to die!
