Our friend Jerimiah passed away recently. I thought it would be nice for those who didn’t know him to learn a little bit about him. Below is a few excerpts written by his good friend Brad Farmer from an online story on Snowboarder Magazines website earlier this week.
Most of Jerimiah’s friends knew him as “Miah” and as a person who had a larger than life personality, a priceless sense of humor and as someone who was just a good human being. Miah lived an amazing life. He had the ability to connect with just about anyone and leave a positive lasting impression.
Miah was one of those people out there who have made significant contributions to the snowboard world without a lot of recognition for it⎯an unsung hero of our industry, if you will. He built snowboard parks for a living and was, in part, responsible for countless unique park builds for some of the most infamous film and photo shoots in the history of snowboarding including work with Mack Dawg, Wildcats, Forum, Burton, Nixon, DC and dozens of other contests like X-Games and the US Open.
