Damn, RIP.

Thatís a beautiful photograph. As morbid as it sounds, and with all due respect, it makes a great memorial photo.

Awful. Local hero to me and everyone else in and around North OC- Brea, La Habra, Fullerton and people connected to Liberty Board Shop and stuff. Jonas ruled and was a super nice guy to me every time I saw or talked to him throughout the years. Sucks. RIP.
ok thanks

RIP, he was a sick skater, loved his footage and fun attitude he had about skating. He will be missed.

Such a bummer.
I'll leave it to someone else to post the amazing Salt Flats TWS cover.
I always loved this photo:

so sorry to hear this

in addition to what a ripper he was, to this day this is one of my favorite episodes, and not just because of him spitting beer all over everyone towards the end (although that was classic too)...just good fun...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vDmngiVioc

he and Jeremey seemed like really tight and loving brothers--what a ripping family, so much history in skateboarding...so sorry for his family and friends...

This has always been one of my top five favorite covers. I remember reading his interview in that issue so thoroughly. I was 13 years old at the time and going through a board every two months or so. He said in that interview he would break a board (or more) every session and I rushed into the kitchen to show my mom and tell her every two months wasn't that bad.

RIP to Jonas and thoughts to his family.
We all know you have two sexy anthropomorphic wolves who buttfuck each other on the bottom of your board.

Very sad to hear this. He and Jeremy always seemed to be really tight and have a great dynamic together. 

He just posted this 3 weeks ago
