Many today are mourning the loss of Erik Roner, who died tragically yesterday in a skydiving accident near Lake Tahoe, California. During a group skydive for the opening ceremony of a golf tournament, Erik hit a tree on the descent and succumbed to his injuries. He was only 39 and many are still shocked and coping with this news.

Erik was not only a skier, base jumper, and skydiver, but also a star of MTV’s show, Nitrocircus, where he performed many action sports stunts. He gained a fan base for his humor and likability everywhere he went, and will be dearly missed. Our thoughts are with his wife and two children, family, and countless friends during this time.
