The late Jerome Kersey is honored by an amazing corn maze

BY foxsports • August 18, 2015

Former Portland Trail Blazers forward Jerome Kersey passed away last year. He was 52 years old when a blood clot moving from his left calf to his left lung resulted in a pulmonary embolism.

He is gone but will not be forgotten, and the fine people at Portland's Bella Organic Pumpkin Patch & Winery have gone out of their way to make sure of it. 

They recently carved a gigantic "#JK25" into a corn maze. Twenty five was Kersey's number for 11 productive years playing for the Trail Blazers. 

This is such a creative tribute for a truly talented human being. Kersey scored over 10,000 points playing for Portland, and spent a few seasons coaching in the NBA after he retired. His death was tragic, but this is one incredible way for him to be remembered.
