Brixton is honored to officially welcome legendary skateboarder Jason Jessee to its team.
“Jason is an inspiration to people inside and outside of skateboarding,” said Brixton co-founder and Brand Manager David Stoddard. “He brings a rich heritage to the Brixton family and we are honored to be working with him.”
“I feel right at home on Brixton,” said Jessee. “I’m into everything they’re into, so it’s very comfortable. I wear two hats and a lot of clothes and their stuff rules, so I am fully stoked on being a part of this.”
These days Jessee spends most of his time in Watsonville, CA, running his company The Driven Skateboards and working on his hobbies which include riding and building motorcycles, vintage cars, wooden boats, welding and collecting firearms.
Jason joins skateboarders Taylor Bingaman, Ernie Torres, Anthony Schultz, Jordan Taylor, Kevin Coakley, Dolan Stearns, Christian Maalouf, Tyler Mumma, Frecks, Rowan Zorilla and Sean Pablo Murphy in the Brixton Union.

Many of you might remember this guy’s name when he was a child prodigy in The DC Video back in 2003. Well, it now appears that Greg Myers has somehow strayed onto the wrong side of the tracks of life. According to this article published late last week in Riverside County’s The Press-Enterprise, he allegedly grabbed a 10-year-old child’s arm as he attempted to carjack a stopped vehicle in Hemet, California.
Hopefully, this incident will serve as a wake up call and he’ll seek to get the help that he needs and regain his focus with the freedoms the skateboarding provides.
