I don't know how many of you guys know who his is but Jesse Marunde just passed away on July 25.

He was a national strongman and former powerlifter who competed in World's Strongest Man, etc....you may have seen him on TV. He was the youngest man ever to qualify at 22 (2002 I think) and then finished second in 2005. Jesse was very impressive and always soft spoken, respectful, and just happy to be competing.

He was 27 years old. Apparently he suffered a massive coronary after doing high rep squats at his farm.

I know he has at least one son who would be around 8 years old. He always seemed like a great guy.

R.I.P.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Yeah, he was the future I think.

It makes me even more sad anytime I see a young guy with a family taken away. I feel so terrible for them.

That guy was huge. I thought he would be around for a while tearing up the Strongman comps. That sucks.

me too. thats probably the worst part. its bad enough to lose a life (of anyone) but then to put the lives of all the people depending on him for survival on the line is even worse.

he also died in his home gym while working out. i think it was reported that he did a few sets of squats and then just collapsed onto the floor.

Yeah, like I said before I read it was high rep squats. I'm actually pretty sure he liked to do 20 rep squats. Which reminds me of something I should post.....
