July 2020 Ambassador of the Month - a Tribute to Lejawn Allen Burton

This month’s Ambassador of the Month award serves as a tribute to our fallen shred sister, LeJawn Allen Burton.  She was a beautiful light in the snowboard community, always bringing stoke, showing up for every competition, and pushing her progression.  Her passion and dedication for the sports we all love outshone us all, and she spent time on the snow even in late stages of her cancer.

We are so sad to learn LeJawn lost her battle with cancer recently. We met her through our rail jams over the years. She competed at every rail jam we produced and ALWAYS pushed herself so hard. You would have never known a woman that was so athletic and so competitive was dealing with cancer that was ravaging her inside. She competed with an immense amount of courage and heart…that is the way we will always remember her and our rail jams will never be the same without her. Shred on sister and rest in peace.

My family and I are so touched that she has been announced as Ambassador of the Month. Snowboarding was her passion, it was her oxygen and she was blessed with so many great friends from that community. Miss you little sister – Shred On!

Lejawn was so fun to ride with. Besides competing beside her at the SheShreds Rail Jams, I was lucky enough to take laps with her at Brighton as well. She was always pushing herself to get better at riding and helped me to push myself as well! She will definitely be missed.
