 21 year old Nosson Deitsch of Brooklyn, NY [Crown Heights section]Tampa, FL - An accident involving a jet ski and a boat in Tampa, Florida has left a 21 year old Jewish Brooklyn man dead, VIN News has confirmed.

According to Tampa Police two men were riding wave runners near the Courtney Campbell Causeway just south of the Bahama Breeze restaurant, just before 3 p.m. Sunday when their watercraft collided.

Tampa TV News station has identified  the man as 21 year old Nosson Deitsch of Brooklyn, NY [Crown Heights section] was ejected off his jetski and into the water.  He was unconscious when he was brought to shore, where bystanders performed CPR on him.  He was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital where he later died.

Watching two young men skim across the water on scooters Sunday, Robyn Plemmons mused to a friend that it would be fun to try it herself.

She quickly had reason to reconsider.

“All of a sudden,” she said, “it’s like, kaboom.”

The young men were riding water scooters almost parallel to each other on the north side of the Courtney Campbell Parkway. Then one turned, Plemmons said, into the other’s path.

From her perch at the open-air bar at Bahama Breeze, she saw a man’s body cartwheel through the air before landing face-down in the water.

He wore a life jacket, but lay there motionless as his friend sped away to get help.

“He never picked his head up,” said Plemmons, who called 911.

Rescue officials said Nosson N. Deitsch, a 21-year-old rabbinical student from New York, appeared unconscious when boaters pulled him from the water and began CPR. The accident happened shortly before 3 p.m., and he was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Police did not name the other rider, who was uninjured and talking with investigators.

They did not say whether he faced any criminal charges or if alcohol was involved.

Plemmons said the men rented the water bikes at the nearby Westin hotel. She said she met with investigators there to discuss what she witnessed.

The hotel manager on duty Sunday evening would not comment about the accident and declined to give his name.

Deitsch is from the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, the center of the ultra orthodox Jewish movement known as Chabad.

“He was a rabbinical student in Miami in South Beach and was to be ordained very shortly as a rabbi,” said Rivka Schechter of Brooklyn, a relative by marriage. “He was a wonderful young man.”

Her son, Shmuel Schechter, 22, was a close friend. He said Deitsch came from a prominent family in Crown Heights.

As is often the case in the Chabad movement, five of his six older brothers are rabbis, the sixth is planning to become a rabbi, and all five of his sisters are married to rabbis, a relationship that involves them in the work of the community as well. His late father — an ordained rabbi, but not a practicing one — ran a textile business and was a leading philanthropist in Crown Heights.

Deitsch was energetic, optimistic, trustworthy and disciplined, Shmuel Schechter said. He routinely studied from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., but was always in the loop with a good story or a bit of news no one else seemed to have heard. He spent the last several years of his life helping younger students.

“Nosson was a dream friend, what everybody could wish for as a best friend, a dream sibling, a dream son and somebody for younger students to look up to,” Schechter said. “He showed that you could be cool and still have a good time in life.”

Deitsch died on a Jewish holiday known as known as Lag b’Omer. He had come to Tampa to help with a Chabad celebration of the holiday, which is traditionally joyful and festive.

He had ridden a water scooter before, and Shmuel Schechter said Deitsch and his friends may have had a little time outside of helping with the celebration to go to the beach.

Back home in Crown Heights, where the Chabad community marked Lag b’Omer with a big parade, the timing of Deitsch’s death stunned family and friends.

“We’re taught to have strong belief in faith and to have no questions for God,” Rivka Schechter said. “But it’s on the tip of everyone’s tongue.”

Chesed Shel Emes of New York, is workings with the Medical Examiner to prevent an autopsy.

This kid was a hoiche neshama. Knew how to learn and treated every jew with a smile. I was privelaged to be by a farbreng in Miami where he spoke with wisdom beyond his years. I watched as his friends hung on his every word and even the main speaker was enthralled by this bochur and his humble loving way of talking. I left impressed that this is how I wish my son's would turn out like him. As always He takes back the best to him. He wants them near him.

i would like to propose a hachlutu, and that is that we add a little more chayas in to one or to things that we do every day, and we shouldnt do them just bc we are used to it.

This is too tragic. He once came to farbreng in our home- we were so impressed with his aidelkait, sweetness, and mentchlechkait. He was really somone special. He learned a tremendous amount of Tanya Baal Peh because his father ob"m wanted him to. He made sure to review it often so as not to forget it. He inspired our son to learn 5 perakim baal peh, even offering him a big present- and it was just out of the blue, and he was not even his counselor or madrich.

When I got to LA for my brother's wedding last year i called Nosson to let him know I arrived. He thought I just arrived in the airport and told me he was picking me up right away. (I was already @ our hosts house by then though)
The next morning he told me he would pick me up to show me the Yeshiva even though it was a 5 min walk from where I was staying. I told him it would be ok if he just gave me directions but he wouldn't hear of it and pulled up in a car several minutes later.
He didn't just drop me off but showed me around the entire yeshiva complex.
He drove out to my brother's wedding and made sure the place was dancing wild for as long as he was there.
He even decided that I had to be carried around on his shoulders and didn't let me run till he managed to do so.

For those of you who knew him, you know what I mean. For those of you who didn't, you missed out knowing a person who cared.

this was nosson. i recently was in miami visiting him and every morning if i woke up late, there was breakfast covered with two plates to make sure its still warm- and nosson would apologize the whole day that it wasnt hot enough!? THIS IS NOSSON! he would bring lunch, supper, pick me up from the airport- made sure i was having a good time, all selflesly- i am in complete shock. i miss nosson terribly already & cant imagine life without him around. he was one of the most down to earth people and at the same time kept the highest of standards for yiddishkeit and chasidishkeit. i love you nosson.

All of my siblings and I were lucky enough to have one of the Deitches including Nosson as classmates. They are all such wonderfull poeple and there are only good things to say about them.
May there be an immediate end to all their suffering with the coming of moshiach right now!!!!

To you and some of the others who judge others, read minds, know exactly the "richtige derech", insinuate and generally spread sarcasm, a word of advice (especially in cases like this): Don't be too smart, it isn't healthy. If you have nothing appropriate to say (clearly you don't) and nothing to do with your lives, find something to do that benefits someone or even yourselves. Shoimer piv u'leshoinoi...

I hope the family has contacted a good FL attorney to help them with all the arrangements needed to make things right and secure what they are entitled to under FL law.

When I awakened this morning I felt exhausted and drained. My night had been filled with horrific dreams- and then I began to cry again, just like I have been crying for the past two days, from the moment we first heard the devastating news that Nosson was gone.

The nightmare was reality, the tragedy really happened. We are stunned, speechless.

This wonderful young man who would have celebrated his twentysecond birthday next month is physically no longer with us.

Nosson, a very special young man who idealized the message of Chabad, a living example of a CHOSSID, filled with LOVE for EVERONE he encountered, filled with joy and happiness, spreading joy and goodness- a Talmud Chochom whose entire existence was filled with Torah study, with long days of memorizing Tanya, as instructed by his dear father Zalman Deitsch OBM, memorized so the words would never be forgotten, his father had instrucyed him.

In his entire young life, and as a senior family member I have known Nosson since his birth, has never uttered an unkind remark about anyone, has never been thoughtless or disparaging. His life was Ahavas Yisroel, Love aof Fellow Jew, and he wa a living example of this credo.

He was always ready to travel to places far and near to help a Shliach. He was ALWAYS ready to help a fellow Jew.

For Nosson, to be engaged in the Mitzva of Tefillin, he did not have to be on a special project- an encounter with a stranger at an airport, a casual meeting anywhere was for Nosson an opportunity to perform a Mitzva.

He was a caring wonderful son, calling his dear mother Cyrel daily, often more than once a day, knowing that this would brighten up her day for life had changed when he lost his father nearly four years ago.

He was dear to all his family members , to all his numerous friends and to EVERYONE he encountered. And here we are, asking WHY, filled with pain and sorrow.

What should we do now?

The message of The Rebbe when Rebetzin Chaye Mushka was niftar was The living shall take to heart.

Let us apply this message to Nosson and dedicate ourselves, young and old, man woman and child, to perpetuate the ideals incorporated in Nosson- First of all- Ahavas Yisroel.

Let us learn to smile kindly at all people, just like Nosson always did. A smile has great power- it can lift the spirits of the recipient, it can provide strength.

Let us become more aware of life around us and interact with people, offer help and assistance in whatever way we can.

Let us perpetuate the ideals of the life of Nosson and keep his legacy alive.

With Nosson as our leader, let us devote ourselves to make this world a better place, one added good deed daily, and together, with love in our hearts, displayed in our actions, let us hasten to Bring Moshiach Now.

Nosson, you will Always be remembered.
