SPECIAL TRIBUTE PAYING HOMAGE TO JAKE DUNHAM
DECEMBER 12th, 2018 (Corona, California) – The Time Trials Only Presented By The Jump Champs will feature a moment of silence paying homage to Jake Dunham. Dunham was a known off-road enthusiast and regular event competitor at Jump Champs events, but was tragically killed on November 7th at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. Off-roading was his true passion in life according to his friends and family. He even coined the term “Hold ‘Er Wide” for the sport which was recently added into Urban Dictionary.
To honor his memory, The Jump Champs has titled the December 15, 2018 event as the “Jake Dunham Memorial Time Trials Only” and will feature a moment of silence at 9:00 AM at the commencement of the mandatory drivers meeting. A special Jake Dunham memorial logo has been created that presents his original “Hold Er Wide” slogan. The logo is incorporated into the event trophies and various signage at the event so anyone at the Time Trials will recognize the impact Jake has made on the off road community.
Despite growing up with a hemophilia and blindness in one eye, Jake still took on extreme sports such as BMX riding, dirt bike riding, and off-roading. Jake was in the process of building his prerunner truck and swapping the engine in it from a stock 3.0L V6 to and LS1 with over 500 horsepower in preparation to compete at Jump Champs this upcoming season. Jake’s father, uncle, and friends are continuing to build the truck they way Jake wanted and are making plans to race it in Jake’s honor once completed.
We are especially grateful to Jake’s Cousin; Heather M. Dillon and Jake’s Mother; Kathy for working with us to honor Jakes memory.
