UPDATE: Vans to Celebrate Jeff Grosso’s Life Today

Given that it’s impossible to hold a ceremony under current conditions, Vans is doing the next best thing to honor the life of Jeff Grosso. On April 28, Grosso would have turned 52. Vans is celebrating with a virtual tribute via it’s YouTube channel that will feature unseen footage and personal insights from family and friends. 

Grosso leaves behind a prolific legacy of skateboarding history, having touched the lives of skaters—and skate nerds—of all ages and backgrounds with his cunning commentary, tenacious attitude, and enduring activism for preserving the core. The special ceremony will showcase never-before-seen-footage of Jeff doing what he does best, along with personal video dedications from friends and family. Moderated by Chris Nieratko, the event will close with an intimate memorial gathering with respected skate names such as Steve Van Doren, Loveletters to Skateboarding co-creators Rick Charnoski and Buddy Coan, John Lucero, Steve Olson, Steve Alba and Lizzie Armanto.

The ceremony starts on Tuesday at 3:00pm EST. We’ll update with the link when it goes live.

UPDATE 04.28.20: Here’s a friendly reminder that this is going live this afternoon. We’ve added  the link up top.
