In Memory of Cesare Vismara #1 SRB
In Memory of Cesare Vismara #1 SRB
'Blessed Are The Flowers of the Sea'
Thursday October 17th a tragic accident took place at the IJSBA World Finals. Our staff, colleagues and friends are in deep shock and sorrow over this devastating loss.
The death of 36 year old Cesare Vismara has deeply affected our entire international racing community on many levels.
Cesare had been racing with 'Team Serbia' for the past three years and was extremely passionate about his racing. He was very focused about his training program and worked very hard towards earning the World Championship Title race plate #1 as his absolute goal.
Our condolences and heartfelt prayers are extended to Cesare's father whom is in need of your prayers as he is recovering from the loss of his beloved son. Mr. Vismara was not able to travel to the United States as his grief affected his health. His sister came to America to return home with Cesare's remains today back to Italy, a very difficult journey. Our prayers go out to her as she bears this heavy burden at this time.
The family is not in need of any funds or financial contributions. However your well wishes and prayers are much needed and appreciated at this time.
We at K38 are organizing a memorial tribute to celebrate his life that will be dedicated next year in the City of Lake Havasu Arizona at the Parade of Nations in Vismara's memory. Cesare loved the City of Lake Havasu and looked forward every year to coming to the World Finals to compete, he simply thrived on the energy.
If you would like to make a contribution to Cesare's Memorial you may write to K38rescue@gmail.com for further details. We erected a temporary memorial shore side and contemplated his passion for the sport he loved offering time for reflection and fellowship in his memory. Cesare was proud of his heritage and was deeply passionate about the sport of Personal Watercraft Racing- Moto d' Aqua.
The Jet Ski Team Serbia president Veljko Sukalo is deeply saddened and grieving for the loss of his friend and team rider. He loved Sardinia and the ocean, he lived fast and rode fast. This week Cesare was to receive his Serbian citizenship and he looked forward to this very much. The entire racing Team Serbia is in deep shock and grief over the loss of the friend and fellow racer. They also are in need of our community support with condolences and well wishes/
The Pro-Am National Title holder who took top honors on Friday dedicated his placing and win to Cesare, a heroic tribute that is deeply felt, along with other racers. Thank you for such a gracious and dignified gesture.
I will never forget Cesare, or his red Ultra, #1 SRB, the 'Vismara Show', nor will our K38 team. Ben Granata and I were rolling into Havasu on the 6th of October and Cesare pulled up to blow kisses and big smiles, we laughed as we pretended to race into Havasu, with me dragging a trailer with 4 Jet Skis, of course I did not win. We constantly checked in with one another all week long as we made our preparations and he made his. Team Serbia (I Love You!) gave the entire K38 crew Team Serbia hats and shirts and to many others extended their generosity, a large contribution for our team, worn with pride.
He blew a kiss on the starting line of his last race, typical Cesare! What a rascal! I am honored to be his witness. I shall never forget him. Nor will many others who knew him.
Please join us in celebrating the life of Cesare Vismara and his love for the sport of his choice; "Moto d' Aqua".
What can you do?

Un saluto a Cesare
Il compito del Commissario di gara durante le competizioni di moto d’acqua è un incarico tutt’altro che semplice e improvvisato. Lavorare all’interno di un circuito dove le virate sono costituite da boe e dove rischiose cadute e pericolose collisioni sono fattori perfettamente a conoscenza dei piloti e degli operatori del settore.
Differente è invece che questi eventi si tramutino in tragedie come quella accaduta a Cesare Vismara, pilota trentaseienne di Milano, pluricampione della categoria Runabout (moto con guida da seduto), che durante le finali di Campionato Mondiale IJSBA disputatesi in Arizona la settimana scorsa, ha trovato la morte a causa di un tremendo scontro con un altro pilota.
Pilota molto conosciuto nell’ambiente e cordiale con tutti coloro che lo conoscevano e frequentavano, anche quest’anno durante la cerimonia di apertura dei Mondiali era venuto a salutare il Team della K38 che svolge la sicurezza in acqua durante la settimana di gare, chiacchierando cordialmente con tutti noi e con Shawn Alladio, nostro Team Leader.
Essere testimoni in prima persona di un evento così terribile e trovarsi a soccorrere colui che il giorno prima era a passeggio sorridente per i paddock, intenzionato a lasciare ben altro segno anche a questi mondiali, è un ricordo che ti accompagnerà per il resto della tua vita, ha detto Shawn dopo l’incidente, ancora con voce segnata da un’emozione non ancora metabolizzata.
Il saluto di tutta la K38 va a Cesare ed alle persone a lui vicine.

Cesare's plane was delayed, he has now arrived in Rome, back home to Italy finally! He is traveling from Rome to Milan right now and his funeral will be held tomorrow due to the delay. There will be a public service in a church and another for the family at a private Farm in Milan.
Keep Cesare, and his family in your prayers and kindest regards.
