Some unfortunate news to update this story:

Yesterday, the 43 year old man's body was found at Weko Beach. A couple walking along the beach discovered it.

If anything at all positive could be said, at least now maybe the family can get some closure.

Weko Beach? (Bridgeman), That's like 10 miles north or so of New Buffalo.

I talked to someone who lives on the beach about 1 mile or so south of New Buffalo. He was home when the accident took place right out in front of his place. He didn't see the accident happen, but said the water was pretty flat and according to some of his neighbors who saw the accident, the boat (a yellow Baja) was jumping the wakes of a couple of big cruisers type boats and there were a few jet skis doing the same. Apparently, he successfully jumped one of the cruiser's wake and the accident occured as he was simultaneously turning and engaging the other cruiser's wake.
