Jneiro Jarel Suffers Severe Stroke in Costa Rica, Launches GoFundMe Campaign

The JJ DOOM producer is in stable condition, but effectively stranded in a Costa Rican hospital.

Prayers are with Jneiro Jarel, as the polymath producer has reportedly suffered a “massive, ischemic stroke” during a stay in Costa Rica.

According to Pitchfork, Jarel’s wife, Indigo, has created a GoFundMe campaign to supplement the costs of treatment as the family sorts out transportation back to the states with their insurance provider, though that has proved to be problematic. Indigo states that their US insurance provider has agreed to cover only 11 days of care in Costa Rica. The allotment has run its course, and the family is currently seeking funds to return home safely, commence inpatient treatment and post-stroke rehabilitation. Indigo insists that “continuing to stay here in Costa Rica, with no further assistance from our health insurance provider, is no longer an option. No donation is too small.”

Jarel’s perhaps best known for his work with MF DOOM as JJ DOOM, but recently released the (excellent) new solo project, Micröclimate, via Bandcamp (hear it below.)
