The Professional Bull Riders said goodbye to one of their family members this past weekend. Jerome Robinson was a cowboy at heart and a good one to boot. He led an impressive career; most notably, the eleven-time National Finals Rodeo Bull Riding qualifier, one of the best in history, was inducted to the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame for his accomplishments. After a career ending injury, Jerome went into rodeo production, and was one of the original 20 men to start the Professional Bull Riders (PBR).
Jerome has been with the PBR since day one and helped it to grow into the roaring success it is today. From better bulls, more prominent arenas (such as Madison Square Garden), and becoming a mainstream sport through network TV, Jerome had a hand in making it all happen.
We want to send our condolences to the Robinson family and the PBR family for their loss.
