Update from Jessy Nelson Instagram Account:

In the second Moto at Unadilla, I had a crash in a tricky turn, ultimately ending with a red flag for the race. I went down pretty hard of a direct result of the bike hitting me from behind. I am currently at a hospital in Cooperstown, NY where we are waiting for some swelling to go down in my back before doing surgery. At this time I have limited feeling from my waist down. The hope is that after the swelling goes down, I will get some more feeling back. Thank you all for your support, kind thoughts and prayers. I will keep you posted in the next few days!

R2R has been speaking to his team and people closest to him since he hit the ground.  No matter the level of injury R2R will be by his side to assist in his recovery.  Any support is appreciated at this time and you can make a tax deductible donation on this page.  As we know there are a lot of treatments and rehabilitation out there that are not covered by insurance and we will do everything in our power to make sure Jessy gets the best care available.  Also please leave a comment at the bottom of this page.  Once it’s approved it will appear for Jessy to keep his motivation at its highest.

Hashtag your social media posts #JN13R2R so he can go back and see them all for encouragement.

 UPDATE 8/18/16

Encinitas, CA – Update on Jessy Nelson as of 4:30 pm PST. We just got conformation from Jessy Nelson’s camp that he is out of surgery and is in recovery. The doctors spoke briefly with his family and were happy to report that there was no further damage and the surgery went well and according to plan. It is still to early to confidently stay the extent of Jessy’s injuries. Being that this is a critical time for the Nelson family we respect their privacy and ask that you do as well. We can only hope for the best and keep him and his family in our thoughts and prayers. Jessy and the Nelson family would like to thank everyone who have donated, passed along kind words, and keep them in their prayers.

      I am extremely sadden to hear what happened to Jessy in August. I have been through the same situation with my brother 25 years ago. It will not be easy to get through these difficult times. Please stay strong and positive.
      Please look at the advanced research and testing they are doing for recently injured people. They are using stem cells to get feeling and function back on newly injured people. I pray that Jessy can be a candidate for one of the tests and he can get his movement back. I hope this e-mail finds its way to you.
      Jessy, Stay positive and be strong. You were one of the best riders in the world for a reason!!!

    Hey Jessie,
    I’m on your side. Please be strong and DO NOT despair. I recommend for you to do “mental healing” – where you “heal your spinal cord” by way of mental concentration by using the energy of the universe – twice a day for 30 minutes each time – when you are alone. I know it sounds weird but I had a big crash in the 450 novice class 2 year ago and I lost most of the skin on my left forearm. The doctors said we will need to do a skin graf. I said please give me one more week. I did the mental healing sessions and when they took the bandage off, the nurse said she hadnt seen anything like this in 20+ years of service. Im with you Jessie.

    I am praying for you. I just have been receiving text after text asking myself about you so just know you have so many people pulling for you. I wish we could all leave and come see you.

    Jessie,
    I just donated to the Road2Recovery. I’m a old man in a young man’s sport and I think about the possibility of getting hurt every time I throw a leg over my bike which is just about every weekend. I watched you on the podium and how several of you young men handle yourself and do a fine job representing your team and this sport. I had to work at the office this past weekend or I would have been at Dilla on Saturday. I will be at Budds the weekend and sure you will be well represented through TLD and Red Bull. Keep your sprits as high as you can look ahead to tomorrow……. I will say a prayer for you before the next time I ride. Peace BRK828

    Jessy,
    I passed you in the pits at Dilla before the 1st moto while you were walking around eating a banana (lol) and pointed you out to my nephew. He was so pumped that he walked past a professional rider away from his hauler, crew, etc. We kept our eyes on you during your rides, we even have a pic of you taking flight off of Screw You. We were at the bottom of Sky Shot when your crash happened and watched the 677 and the 2 fans pull you bike off top of you. Everyone down in that turn solemnly watched the medical team load you in the back of the ambulance. Even though a terrible scene to witness it was amazing how everyone spoke so highly of you as a rider and as a person and hoped you’d be okay. It’s great to finally read about your health status, keep the positive outlook and we look forward to seeing you again next year at Dilla!

    Like the parents of most riders I know the feeling of sitting next to a hospital bed all too well. Luckily my son’s visits have been short ones and I can not begin to imagine how difficult this time is for Jessy’s parents. I wish them strength for the days ahead as they support each other and Jessy and the rest of their family. We met Jessy when my son and I travelled from Australia to watch the racing at Millville two years ago and were taken with what a nice guy he is.

    Jessy, stoked to hear surgery went well. We have met a number of times at local So. Cal tracks ( you would know my Great Dane Roman) I was where you are now 23 months ago, from a very similar injury. Paralyzed from the waist down with an incomplete spinal cord injury. Shattered T-5, fractured T-7&T8 .fused from my 4-10 . Doc told me there was a good chance I would not walk again. I made my peace with it , but soon started regaining movement, first in my left big toe , then slowly with a lot of work everything else started working better and better. I spent a year in a wheel chair , I’ve been walking with the assistance of a cane .
    I plan on making a 100% recovery.
    I’m not going to tell you it has been easy , hardest thing I’ve gone through in the 50 years I’ve been alive. I never looked at my injury as permanent, it was always just another moto injury and my mind set was , how soon can I get back on my bike.( I am back on my bike today) My advice to you is stay mentally strong, you can get through this . Focus on small achievements and know everything is temporary.
    If you ever need to talk to someone who has/is going through this I would be stoked to talk to you again.
    Stay strong
    Scott

    Remember that the only ‘tools’ that your body has to use and heal is what you put down your throat. Eat the best healing foods you can. The Internet has a plethora of information. Follow those that make sense to you. For some reason most doctors/hospitals don’t emphasize the best nutrition.
    However, the ‘life force’ in all of us depends on it.
    Good luck on complete recovery.

    Hey Jessy my name is Trent Kempton and I saw your crash and instantly started praying for you! I broke my back at T6 and T7 but my spinal cord wasn’t severed or cut either, it was crushed to about an 1/8 of an inch when normally your spinal cord is supposed to be about 3/4 of an inch diameter. I went to project walk as well as you can see in the pictures and it’s an amazing place! Ask them to put you on the FES Bike, it’s a type of bike you roll up to in your chair and they hook little sticker electrode pads to the top and bottom of your thighs and the top of your buttocks and it electrically stimulate your muscles to Pedal the bike but it also creates resistance the more you use it so your muscles can continue to get stronger and keep your bones healthy and density from decreasing. Also look into the Ensure Enlive drink because it contains a new protein called HMB that helps prevent muscle loss and muscle degeneration and will help promote muscle gain along with many other things. I wish they came out with it a few years ago because my legs are Twigs now haha

    Also get a hold of Ricky James. He’s paralyzed at the same level as me and he’s writing for KTM and they hooked up a whole system electronically for him to ride a dirt bike off from the handlebars. I’m sure you probably heard of him. And if you want the best wheelchair around call Colours wheelchair located in NorCal California right next to where the 91 Freeway and the 15 freeway intersect. Ask to speak to a guy named Ernie Espinoza. He is the national sales representative of Colours wheelchair and is a good friend of mine that I’ve known for years and he knows Ricky James as well and just mention my name that I told you to go to him and he’ll hook you up with everything you need. Then if you have any questions or want to talk about how to deal with an injury like this feel free to message me anytime. Me and my spinal cord injury doctor are working with Texas A&M University building a new prototype of an exoskeleton that allows paraplegic and quadriplegic to walk again. if you’d like to be a part of that let me know

    I bought a FES bike to have at home and my church and a foundation paid $16,000 to get it for me. Definitely worth it though. and invest in a standing frame to keep your bone density from degrading and it helps with blood flow as well. email me if you have any questions about the injury or equipment. livfastridehard16@gmail.com

    Jessie, my son Jordan Poole was critically injured at the Mint 400 2015. Jordan suffered a tramatic spinal cord injury and was paralyzed from the waist down after the accident. Jordan went through extensive therapy and still does weekly.. Jordan never gave up even when the doctors told him he had a 5 % chance to ever walk again. Well they were wrong…. Not only does Jordan walk but he continues to race offroad. Jordan has also recieved stem cell therapy after the accident. So my point is never give up and as long as you keep fighting you can and will achieve your dreams.. The mind is a powerful thing.. If there is any information I could help you with, please feel free to send me an email…

    Jessy and Nelson Family,
    This MX family is praying for you. May the Lord, shine down on Jessy and comfort him with his incredible strength. May He take away any pain and grant healing through small steps. Feel each tingle, each twitch, imagine your brain moving your toes, fingers, muscles. Even tho, it may just be a spasm..Think Hard! God did a miracle on my mom- whose legs were almost severed. She taught my brother to use his Mind and Focus on each movement & twitch. (She walked again) God then had to help my brother (a quadriplegic) from a Suzuki at 21. Stay on top of stem cell research and technology..steroids, get involved. This will aid in you recovery. Set your goals, first getting stronger, then standing, then driving again..next racing again! Celebrate your positives!! Share them with US! 🙂 Stay busy it keeps you positive- find ways to help the cause, it helps to talk to others who have been there. Learn tricks to make life easier for you now- bed transfers, standing tables, the best tie downs for your chair in cars. 🙂 Look into computer system that turns on home lights for you by your voice & Turns off tv’s – electronics. Get yourself lot of velcro straps..can help hold your own fork, hair brush, electric shaver, wrap it around your wrist..You can do things for yourself and have some personal life back. 🙂 I understand your injury maybe different and area of it injured…but Your life may take another direction..as my bro’s did. He became a Day Trader, ran my dads Powder Coating Company with only 2 fingers to type with!! He made websites for people, he went to work 17 years with the help of aids & family but he was Succesful! He had a home in Yorba Linda..easy one story, commercial short carpet and tile. We had parties all the time, Superbowl, Supercross, Birthdays, Nascar…mx races on tv! Keep your family and friends close. Ask for help..it’s ok…others want to help and it will make life easier for all who help and visit you. 🙂 With your determination, family and friends- this mx community…the Sky Is Still the Limit! Prayers of mountainous strides to You #13 <3

I had been a trail rider who just discovered MX and watching you rip up the track made me a track junkie!! My asperations from there forward were To ride as smooth and fluid as you. I’m not a racer and in my 40’s but seeing you flow around the track really inspired me to become a better rider. Thanks for all you do amigo!!
