Another celebrity gone too soon! Upon hearing that Dylan Rieder tragically lost his battle with cancer on Oct. 12, Ryan Sheckler and other stars have taken to social media to mourn the passing of the handsome skateboarder. Read their touching messages, here.
Skateboarding superstar and MEGA hottie Dylan Rieder was just 28 years old when he passed away. The skateboarder died of complications related to leukemia, according to a press release issued by The Ride Channel. It was reported that some of his organs, his liver in particular, shut down. Distraught by the news, other skateboarders like Ryan Sheckler, Danny Way, Jagger Eaton, Todd Richards, Arto Saari EVEN Sharon Osbourne turned to their social media accounts to mourn the loss of the much-too-young athlete/model.

Dylan was loved by SO many people — and not just other skateboarders! As a model, he worked with Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, who must also be completely shaken up by his passing. The three models posed together for DKNY‘s 2014 Spring Ad Campaign. Tons of magazine brands and sponsors also sent their kind words and thoughts to Dylan’s family. “Got the worst phone call this morning rip Dylan Rieder,” Tweeted Skateline (from Thrasher magazine) host, Gary Rogers.
Dylan, who grew up in Southern California, began skateboarding at the crazy young age of nine, and made it to the big leagues as a professional at 18. Throughout his career, he competed in all types of challenges from Street League to the X Games. Dylan went on to create his own sponsor by the name of, “F—–g Awesome,” which is exactly how we feel towards the pro skater! He’s a legend who will surely be missed!
HollywoodLifers, did you have Dylan’s posters hung up on your bedroom walls? Wish his family some love!
