Jake Piasecki Obituary
Jake Piasecki used to tell his disciples that "four wheels and a piece of wood will set you free."
Known for his high aerials and tricks, the pro skateboarder from the South Bay developed a nationwide following, products bearing his name, and admirers who tried to live up to his standards.
Piasecki's sudden death at age 45 last week shocked the skateboard community. Piasecki, a husband and father from Redondo Beach, was at the forefront of the sport's popularity in the South Bay in the 1980s.
