Jeremy Lusk funeral no longer open to public; will be shown on webcast

**Update with publicist's clarification

Because of overcrowding concerns, only family, friends and industry associates will be allowed inside Revival Christian Fellowship church in Menifee, Calif., for Jeremy Lusk's funeral service at 1 p.m. Monday.

However, fans of the freestyle motocross star, who died Tuesday from injuries suffered during a crash at a competition in Costa Rica, can watch the Lusk service online.

Here's the brief announcement issued Saturday night by Metal Mulisha's publicist:

"Due to the outpouring of love, affection, admiration and sentiment regarding Jeremy, please note that funeral services will be webcast simultaneously.

"Limited church capacity mandates that only family, friends and industry associates attend, please."

On Sunday afternoon, Cheryl Lynch, the publicist, clarified that no invitations have been issued and that if people were friends of Jeremy and/or worked with him in some capacity they're urged to attend. Lynch added, "Many, many people around the world are mourning his passing and having this webcast it is our hope that many more will feel part of this most difficult task of saying goodbye."
