did he have any family here?

11.19.14 - 3:30 pm



11.19.14 - 3:32 pm


I spoke to him about that, Don. JJ told me his family members are passed away or disconnected from him. We were pretty much what he had left.

Mike Kwan How long has he been there? He had been a VA patient for a while and relied on them for medical care. On Veteran's Day, I am honored that he served us and that we were able to provide him a basic level of care. He once told me he was in his mid-70s and we rode together on many rides. I can assure this was one of the true enjoyments that he had.

Sec Cee Love I love everybody spirit about bringing him spirits. He is no condition to drink and he might appreciate the gesture but couldn't and wouldn't partake. Also know before going that he may ask you to leave prematurely. He is bed ridden so has to have certain needs taken care of by others. That is hard for people when they are in that position. Try to remember to help him keep his dignity while going through this. I offered to move him yesterday but he only wanted the nurses to help him. I know you all would want to hug him and shake his hand, just know that it hurts him just to touch his skin. Be mindful about touching him, it could be too painful for him.

I only know he originally was from Indiana and his father brought his whole family to LA when he was a kid. His dad worked at the Ambassador hotel and his mother worked at the Brown Derby (Wilshire). Left for the Army when he was seventeen.Ended up in the valley when he started working in the aerospace industry.

Mike Kwan When I looked at the sign-in book, he doesn't get many visitors. Instead of say three people visiting him at the same time, I think it would be better to have each person meet at a different time. It's a huge inconvenience for the visitors but who knows how much longer he'll be with us.He told me it's difficult to have to think of what to say and to actually say it.

Mike Kwan I'm just telling you how JJ felt. He told me he used to run a lot but I think he wanted to be with other people so he liked riding with us. We were a lot of his friends.

Mike Kwan And I think for him, that's a good way to leave the world and to let him know he'll be missed. It's so much better for us to know ahead of time that he's going instead of finding out the next day that he passed away.

I remember the time I met JJ at RWNN. He was knocked down by another reckless rider. I helped him up and I introduced myself to him. First thing he says is "I'm should beat that guy's ass, I'm JJ by the way." We had a good laugh and continued on the ride. I never really spoke to him but when I did it would most likely be on RWNN. We'd shake hands and have a cheer on our beer. Either way, I'm bummed out another Midnight Rida has left us especially someone that was young at heart. Ride on JJ. We'll ride again one day.

What a sweet, kind and young spirited man he was! I was always so inspired by his youthful tenacity. I'm sure he was comforted greatly by those of you who were able to see him in his last day's. RIP JJ

11.19.14 - 6:51 pm


Unreal that myself, Speedy Brian and Richie got to see him just yesterday.... he was really tired and we only stayed for a few minutes, but he recognized us and we had some last laughs with him, shook his hand (still had a strong grip!) and told him that the community was writing good stuff about him and loved him.

Thank you JJ for riding with me. Thank you for the brandy you offer me on the cold winter night to keep me warm. I have not been around the scene much due to working the evening, but your one of the first ridazz I remember talking to when I first started riding. I am going to miss dearly. I know in my heart that you will be riding with all of us fellow ridazz is spirit. Until I see you in the next life. RIDE ON!

funny guy he was.

Let me throw some water on that fire.

He worked at Santa Susan Rocketdyne in July 1959 during the meltdown.

are you saying it wasnt the smoking that caused his lung cancer?

responding to a comment by sexy
11.20.14 - 1:15 pm


No he never smoked. He was probably just blowing smoke up Paul's ass.

When he told me had lung cancer, we went through all the events that may have possibly brought it on. The only reasonable conclusion that we came up with was being close in the proximity when the meltdown occurred. I'm sure living in the valley didn't do wonders for his respiratory system, as it doesn't for most of it's inhabitant. Not bad. It only took over 40 years to develop if that was the cause.

it would be a believeable conspiracy if JJ were younger... but if he wasnt a smoker then i do wonder what it could have been... 40 years is a long time to pass between the incident and the disease.

responding to a comment by Joe Borfo

I would invite both of you who used the word conspiracy to look it up the dictionary to see what the definition is. I never made a claim that anybody came up with a plan to do wrong to anybody in trying to come to a reason of why JJ developed lung cancer. The rockedyne melt down was an accident. JJ just happened to be working there at the time of the meltdown and would therefore have a likely chance of being exposed to the fission gases of plutonium and strontium that was release when the meltdown occurred.

The latent of solid cancers being developed from radiation exposure is 10 to 60 years.
Therefore it is hard to determine if or if the exposure will cause a cancer. Yet high levels of exposures have been show to cause solid cancer in much later years.

Also he was exposed to the hydrazine fuel while testing rocket engines . A six-year study by the UCLA School of Public Health finds that workers exposed to hydrazine fuel while testing rocket engines are twice as likely to die of lung cancer as co-workers not exposed.

This conclusion came from talking to the person who was effected by the illness and going over as much as he could remember about his life it was the primary events of thing he could conclude as to why this may have happened. Is it the absolute truth? no one will ever know. I'm just sharing information with everybody as to conversations I had with JJ.

here is a bit of references that you can ignore that support the statements I made above.
