I started Jebus in 2015 right after i graduated from high school. At that point it had been an idea for several years already, relating to an illustration a close friend of mine made. we were 12 years old, both shared the love for skateboarding and for some reason this name/idea just stuck with me. I wasn't sure what it was at the time but drew it on all my notebooks, Made cartoons about it, started painting it on my skateboards and pretty soon started making small products to try selling the idea at school. I always had a great group of friends and family to support these projects as there was always pushback on what i was doing. When i graduated high school it only made sense to try and pursue the one thing i had been infatuated by for so long. Coincidentally that same year, the saranac lake skatepark opened up and our first local contest was held, opening a door to so many skaters i never knew or had only seen in videos. I met Broyce who immediately blew my mind, his tricks were next level and i couldn't believe that no one was sponsoring/filming this guy.
i jumped at the opportunity and broyce started riding my prototype boards for a while and helping me to spread this concept i had to other skaters we knew.
Fast Forward to the summer of 2019...
Broyce called and we spoke about doing an official launch (after things being quiet for a few years) and within two months we launched our first product line up backed by a couple more guys i had the pleasure of meeting along the way,
(Evan and Zach) and i knew they represented the brand perfectly. In the last few years I have had such a great time forming friendships with these guys and i am certainly blessed to be working with some talented, kind hearted people who truly believe in what we do. I have also been able to meet so many wonderful individuals in and outside of the skateboarding community through all of this. The growing number of kids i see skating inspires me to be a driving force in helping to keep this ball rolling. I have loved skateboarding since my first ride on one, It has been my outlet from the everyday hurdles life throws at me, so If i can inspire anyone else to pick a board up, put their energy into something creative like i did, keep pushing themselves to ride, or even change the minds of those who hold us to negative stereotypes, i will. Thank you to every single person who has played a role in making my vision come true and who inspires me to keep these wheels turning...
