CrossFit honors Mark with JAG 28 WOD

We were notified a few months ago that CrossFit gyms all across the country were honoring Mark by doing the JAG 28 Hero Workout of the Day (WOD). It was first adopted by CrossFit Havoc in Lawton, OK, then later in Iowa, Oregon, and then by, followed by other affiliate gyms across the nation, including Tuscaloosa (workout was on July 3, 2012) and Fayetteville, NC (workout was July 21, 2012). The origins of the JAG 28 workout for CrossFit Havoc (Lawton, OK) are thanks to Jason Stanley, who was a friend of Mark’s in college. They spent many hours in the gym together. He was also deployed during the same time period Mark was.

Here is the workout:

We recognize CrossFit and all its local gyms for honoring the fallen. Unfortunately there are many, and there is a wait list to add more Hero WOD’s. This page lists all the Hero WOD’s, along with pictures of the fallen with short bios.

If you have pics from your JAG 28 WOD, please let us know.
