Jackson Edwards was well-known to the electric bicycle forum, endless-sphere. He posted his electric bike way back in August of 2010 under the username “Farfle”, when he was only 17.

He then built a high-powered super-motard electric race motorcycle in 2013, when he was 20, which was featured in “Hackaday”.

I had the privilege of meeting Jackson a couple of years ago, and I had hoped to visit him again and to take the time to get to know him better. The world was a better place with him in it…and he will be missed.
