Our Story and where we started
Send IT Death Before Dishonor was created using battle tested words. My name Pierre and in 2018, I had a small accident that changed my life forever.
I joined the USN at 19, when that was done I attended a 7 month EMT and Fire Fighter Academy. I worked for CDF/CAL FIRE till 2012. Then was given the opportunity to attend a Sheriff's Academy. Once a passed that I was able to be a proud public servant till 2021.
In 2018 I slipped and fell down 2 flights of stairs, thankfully I have a hard head. 18 months later I went to the doctor because my left knee was given out. They found I'd have a C5/ C6 disc herniation and 50% of spinal cord compression.
My life changed forever. 2 weeks later I was in surgery. But I gained a few millimeters in height so that's a plus, now I'm 6'2. Heck yea. I have a plate and 4 screws for my C5/C6 fusion. Had surgery on my left elbow for bone fragments that broke off from my elbow when I fell. Plus messed up knees,ankles and right hip.
In all everything I did and have done in my life and a set or corrugated steel stairs kicked my butt. I was an avid BMX rider, I rode motocross and enduro, trained in muy thai and jujitsu. I was a gym rat and avid mtb rider. But that all changed.
Now I can't Send It like I used too but I still enjoy as much as I can. I've dealt with PTSD, depression, divorce and the proverbial rollercoaster with being medically retired and the stigma of being "disabled". But I dont believe that at all. I am blessed for my friends and family who helped me through a dark time and help me find a new version a better version for myself, my kids and my family and friends.
So that's a bit about me and what I believe is these words are not just a catch phrase, they are a way of life.
I created Send It Death Before Dishonor because I wanted a company that supports riders, in helping them fulfill their dreams, while making durable clothing, gear and accessories that won't tear after one ride or wash.
