The IJSBA is saddened to announce the passing of Blake Corning’s mother Cara Corning on Sunday, Mother’s Day. According to Blake, she loved personal watercraft racing. Her interest and support for the sport started when Blake first began racing and continued as he promoted racing through Tri-State Promotions and as he worked for the IJSBA at Motosurf, The Pro Tour and World Finals.

Cara Corning fought a valiant battle against cancer and passed quietly after being surrounded by her family as they read her Mother’s Day cards. The IJSBA staff expresses our deepest sympathy to Blake and the family and wishes them all the best.

You may send sympathy cards and notes of encouragement to Blake and the family at 916 S. Mountainview Ave. Tacoma, WA. 98465 or email
