The Jarrett Markel Creativity Boot Camp was created in loving memory of Jarret Markel. Jarrett’s love for motocross was surpassed only by his love for his family. In order to become the best possible mechanic, he attended Motorcycle and Marine Tech, Orlando, Florida. His exceptional mechanical skills enhanced not only his own career but those of friends and his motocross family. He was a lifelong resident of Newburgh, New York. His persistence, determination, kind spirit and soul will be forever missed.
