Suzanne Gracie was a beloved mother, Nana, daughter, sister, wife, and friend. She passed at home on December 12, 2021 with her family by her side. She is survived by her children Ryron, Rener, Ralek, Sage, and Reylan, her 10 grandchildren (Rylan, Rakai, Valyn, Vemma, Raeven, Alua, Faro, Renson, Rovan, Rocqlan), and her husband, Mark. Besides her cherished role of raising her children and grandchildren and her career in real estate, she was also pivotal in establishing the roots of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the United States. While most of her work was behind the scenes, our mother’s life was life was rooted in selfless service to others. We have created this go-fund-me page to honor our mother with a memorial. Our mom loved the ocean, and found peace in her weekly beach walks on the strand. We will be using the funds to create a beachfront memorial in her name, to honor all that she has done for us, her grandchildren, her friends, and her contributions to the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
We are grateful for all those who have reached out to us with their condolences, prayers, and warm words. While she will be missed by all who knew her, her legacy lives through each one of us. Thank you for your support.
Once the Suzanne Gracie memorial is complete, we’ll send out the location so it can be visited by all those whose lives she touched.
Ryron, Rener, Ralek, Sage and Reylan
