Jesse Martinez is one of the founding fathers of the Venice Skateboard Association. The VSA represented the need and value of a skatepark on the site of the Venice Pavilion when it was marked for demolition. After fifteen years of lobbying, the dream finally became reality a little over a year ago and the Venice Skatepark has been one of the most successful parks ever built. It has had a huge impact on the city’s youth and business communities alike. Jesse Martinez has dedicated his life the past year to maintenance and security of the park since its opening. Just before the first anniversary of the skatepark’s opening Jesse was jumped and severely beaten while in service at the park resulting in swelling of the brain and a stack of hospital bills. A benefit at the Good Hurt Night Club in West Los Angeles will take place on December 17th to assist Jesse. This important benefit is an opportunity for the community to give back to someone who has given so much to us freely. Everyone’s donations and attendance at this event will be a chance to help make a difference.
