From a facebook page made for jantz.

Very sad. Maybe god will revive him... From his mother, "Jantz was in a horrible crash today at Mini O's in Gainesville, FL. He has suffered huge head and spinal engeries. He is on life support through the night. He will not make it...so please keep him in your prayers.

Thank you for everyone's support."

NOOO.

I was the co-manager of the race team he rode on when he was about 12. Loved that kid and his family - they are good, honest people. Such a horrible thing for anyone to endure, and they don't deserve this.

Hey guys, they are saying on the facebook that he is still trying and hasn't passed. Why has there been so many RIP everywhere already? That's not good. I know a guy who had a severe brain injury a couple months ago and told his family he wouldn't make it or be a vegetable. Right now he is totally fine and living with his wife in Florida. There is always hope.

Maybe the same reason you put RIP JG96 in your first post here. Its what we all read and heard at that time.

Exactly, I just meant in the beginning who started it ya know and how come no one knew? I don't mean the later people who came in, cause they got the news like I did, which was right off the facebook page for him. It would be awesome to see another miracle. I'm sending positive vibes JG96

RIP JANTZ Grodzicki 96: Just got an update, Doctors say he won't make it through the night. Please god...

RIP JANTZ Grodzicki 96: Yes, he went over the bars and direct to his head/neck. Neck-brace didn't help with the amount of impact from the step-down triple.

RIP JANTZ Grodzicki 96: Broken neck and head injuries leaving him on life support

i didn't know him or the family but i Pray the family finds the comfort they need to get through this i couldn't begin to understand what there going through, and hope he finds peace in heaven that he went out doing something he loved around the people he loved. i wish the big names in the sport would do a little more when things like this happen. have every rider in the class janz raced in wear his jersey number for a race or the big name superstars the carmichaels,stewarts,dungey's of the sport sign autographs or do some sort of fundraiser to cover medical/ funeral costs for the family so during this horrible time they don't need to worry about covering the financial costs of there child's unfortunate passing...godspeed R.I.P. #96
