'Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, totally worn out loudly shouting, 'Holy crap, what a ride!!!'.
Rest in eternal peace, Jay. You will never be forgotten. Ride on!!!

'I could die doing what I love, but I could also die never having really lived. To me, that would have been a far greater tragedy.' - Jay Austin
Jay really lived .. up until the very moment he was intentionally brutally murdered in a terrorist attack while cycling the world.
Jay lost his life simply because he was an American.
May 1st, 1989 - July 29th, 2018
