    Hello, I'm Jerzees (Ron) son Justus and I want everyone to know he had covid which led to a heart attack and double pneumonia. He's currently in a medical coma reliant on oxygen. If anyone has questions or need to contact me message me on Facebook because I don't know how JD works. Just figured it was time to let everyone know he's fighting right now and I miss him dearly. He's been in a coma for some days now and he is supposedly getting better according to the doctors. If you're close with him, shoot him a text for when he wakes up, I'm sure he will appreciate it.

    -Justus, the Prince of JD

    I can only reiterate what has already been said Justus. Your dad is a top guy. I don't do Facebook so can only reply here. I'm across the pond. If there's anything any Devil can do then don't hesitate to ask. We're all one big family and we look after each other. Tell your dad Ray's coming over for a beer when he's up for it. And I know he will be. I could use another long weekend in Noo Joisey and I'll look forward to it.

    Hello again, Justus here. Today he ran a 100.8 degree fever and he is still 90% reliant on oxygen. The ventilator is breathing for him as someone had asked, hence the medically induced coma. They put him under so he didn't have to struggle breathing on his own. However, his lungs really took a hit and it's gonna take time. All I can do is go day to day hoping he will do better the next day. Thank you all for the support and no we don't need anything, but thank you! I will try and come on here more often to send updates. I gotta say I know my pops had a lot of friends but the support from everyone is crazy I had no clue he made this much of an impact on others and it makes me very proud and happy to be his son. Thanks again Devils

    -Justus

    Justus, I am sure we ALL AT THE ALMIGHTY JD appreciate this update. Smoke and continued prayers for the boss.

    I have friends that work in the local hospitals, this is so damaging to our lives, I pray that y'all are considering the vaccine's as a new addition to our lives.

    Living in the midwest I could never make the meetings out east, but I enjoyed hanging out with Ron at the Jerzeedevil Grind-Ins at Bark River in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan.
    Smoke and Prayers! And thanks for the updates.

    Those who are new , and those who never met Ron , you have to look no further than his son , Justus , to see the caliber of man he is.
    Solid as Gibraltar.
    We all share your worry , because it is all of our worry.
    I won't pretend to know how it feels having immediate family in this tough situation.
    But I do know tough , and Ron is the fucking definition of it.
    Justus , you have that same strength.
    Continued thoughts , prayers and positive vibes for continued healing and a fast track to healthy.
    I am very much looking forward to seeing Ron again...................to give him a big hug because he hates that.
    And to shoot the shit about the next chapters life is gonna hold for us.

    Friends are through good times and bad. We've had a lot of fun with Ron and I really enjoyed our visit (when you were a kid!) I'm looking forward to seeing both of you for a few more laughs and hugs. Xray and I are good through the long haul. Brighter days will truly be sweet but now is a time of hope, prayer, and anything else we can do, please let us know. :thumbup:
