The BMX community has lost another great rider, this time 16 year old Jordan McMullen.
“The BMX community is mourning again today, as word comes from Colorado that Jordan McMullen passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning at his home.
Jordan was an amazing athlete, coach to local BMXers, and friend to so many people he had the opportunity to touch in his brief time with us.
Those who knew him best are celebrating his life today, as someone who brightened their world, and without whom BMX races, football games and just hanging out will never quite be the same.
Jordan’s family and close friends are obviously in shock at this sudden and tragic loss, but wanted his extended BMX family to know that they very much appreciate all the messages of support, condolences and tributes that are making their way onto the forums and social media today.
The family released a brief statement Sunday night, saying:
Jordan loved his BMX family across the country, and we very much appreciate all the messages, texts and other condolences that are pouring in.
Over 2,000 people showed their support by joining the “RIP Jordan McMullen” Facebook page in the first four hours Sunday Night.”
It is always sad when we lose one of our own and send out our condolences to the family and friends of Jordan.
