Former Baker skateboards pro Terry Kennedy, who allegedly murdered skateboarder Josiah Kassahun has a memorial fund launched by Hunter Brown and Patrick McCray to give the victim's family a financial cushion during this difficult time as well as the months and years to come.
"On Tuesday, July 27th, 2021 Josiah Kassahun was brutally attacked by professional skateboarder Terry Kennedy. He recently passed away from those injuries. This GoFundMe was created to help with expenses related to future memorials. Please be informed that this Gofundme was authorized by the family of Josiah Kassahun but they are not participating in it."
The post continued. "Josiah was and will always be remembered as the perfect friend to everyone who had the good fortune of meeting him. He was loved and had much love to give and he will be dearly missed by an infinite number of people. In these trying times, we ask that you help by donating to ease the financial burden the family is experiencing as well as to create a memorial for him. All proceeds from this GoFundMe will go directly to the family."
According to TMZ Sports, Kennedy violently beat Kassahun at a Comfort Suites in Illinois on July 27, 2021, and did nothing to help him afterward.
The 23-year-old skateboarder's family says Kennedy hit Kassahun, which caused him to fall to the ground and land on his head.
The Baker 3 star could face up to life in prison if convicted.
