From Pat Branch:
“Last night, I heard from a friend that Jarod passed away Thursday… I still can’t believe it. He’s the snowboarder I’ve worked the most with. We were shooting video in Salt Lake City only a few months ago and had big plans for next season. I met him in 2011 through a random new friend, Jonathan Park who was filming with him. We ended up shooting a lot and even more the next season. He was so much fun to ride and shoot with; always bringing a fun energy. In SLC, in February, one night, he came out to shoot with me, Libby and some new friends. We drove around for hours trying to find a spot to shoot (finding some that didn’t work and getting shutdown at the last one). We thought he would explode if he wasn’t strapping in soon. Here’s the memorial page on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/jarodarnstenjohnson. I’m not really a man of words, so I’ll let my photos do the talking. Hover on them to see the captions.
