Our friend Drex suffered a heart attack. His plans are to return to the Jack FM Morning Show in the New Year


Puget Sound Radio read the news on the Jack 96.9 Facebook page that our friend from down-under, Justin “Drex” Wilcomes was struck with a heart attack last night.

Drex, we hold you in our prayers for a quick recovery.

A message from Drex

Justin “Drex” Wilcomes
Hey friends, its Drex…
I had a heart attack last night while home alone around 6.
Right after dinner I started feeling unwell. I went to bed to try and rest but I was too much.
I was taken to hospital where I received a Stent, I had a 100% blockage.
I’ll need a second one before I leave the hospital. The 2nd on is an 80% blockage
It was scary, sobering and super messed up to experience that alone.
I doing well. I’m not sure when I’ll be back on the show.
My thanks to @coquitlam_firefighters @paramedicsofbritishcolumbia and @fraserhealth for saving my life last night. I owe you all the world.
Be well,


  1. Drex had the Astra Zeneca and talked on air about it making him sick. He had to take the next day off. Why did they stop using the AZ vax again?

  2. The Amazon river runs for thousands of miles. At some points it runs through areas of the rain forest that are almost untouched and have been barely explored. Because of the porous limestone in these areas, the river water leaks through the stone and travels deep into the earth, and forms underground pools almost a mile below the surface. Over thousands of years, small blind transparent fish have lived and evolved in these pools. These fish have never seen the sun or surface and have never been seen by the human. These fish care more about this jerk getting a heart attack than I do.

  3. I’m not sure anyone should be taking medical advice from a radio host who has ZERO medical education. Decisions are personal, and best left between doctor and patient. It appears this host, like many of us, got caught up in the hysteria surrounding Covid. More important, he did not have the skills to present his views so as to draw both sides under the tent. Ranting and raving using 4-letter admonitions of the other side simply shows a lack of talk radio skills.

  4. Theresa,

    This is of course the world of social media, hi-lited with people falling inline with rather low minded celebrities and the hive mind in general. Tik Tok, Twitter, Instagram etc. where people like Drex turn their minds off and do only as mind numbing celebrities , MSM’s and the hive say and they so want to VIRTUE SIGNAL to the world that they are “WITH IT!” and to be just another low or non thinking drone. 🙁

  5. While I don’t wish anyone bad will Drex is the most obnoxious, sanctimonious radio personality I have ever heard.

    The second his whiny voice comes on the station is changed.

    Do everyone a favour and chose another way to make money.

  6. Sad to see the lack of compassion here, he might not share your perspective on some topics but still deserves compassion. Not like he is the first controversial radio personality.

  7. Tough crowd.

    I do wish Drex well. Perhaps if y’all had some bivalent flowing through your bodies you’d have enough of a sense of humour to recognize the talent he has. After all, he has a job that you didn’t have the skills to get.

    Perhaps science isn’t the only thing y’all suck at.

  8. Anyone willing to go out of their way to wish people harm for making an informed, yes, informed medical decision deserves no sympathy, especially someone who is part of a community that wants inclusion. I hope he doesn’t speak for the majority of the LG community. Drex, you getting a bunch of money for kneeling to your corporate bosses? We need people to stop supporting all biased corporate or public funded media.

  9. Archer,

    Drex was not talking science with his vile attacks on freedom of choice to take the jab or not. He was preaching what is now a Covid 19/ nota-vaccine cult. THERE WAS NO SCIENCE WHAT SO EVER WITH HIS DRONE LIKE OPINION ON THE JAB!

    OBTW science is not a destination but is a process. Science is always reviewing what it knows on any scientific topic. For those who say they are the science or follow the science are ignorant to what science actually is.

    As per the Covid 19 jabs. The ‘scientists’ at these big pharma pushers admitted they never tested these jabs for efficacy against contraction or transmission of Covid 19. The reviewed scientific testing of the MRNA jabs only looked at how they limited the illness of Covid 19 and some near 2 years later now we see these MRNA jabs suck at that level of efficacy as well.

  10. Ken,

    Yes, the hypocrisy of DREX being he is a practising homosexual is amazing. He and those who are practising homosexuals like him cry for inclusion, but offer little non to others whom they disagree with. They are broken in the head and of a hive mind. They are repulsive people in their blind hypocrisy and of brow beating ideals.

    They are quick to want to cancel culture those whom they disagree with. I’m sure they in their sexual practises would not like the MAJORITY population canceling them back into the closet.


    • Well said.
      This self-described “sarcastic rule breaking smartass “ lecturing others who “broke the rules. “
      Go back to Australia and take your husband with you.

  11. Fantastic usage of the term “homosexual,” Les! I’m sure every member of the LGBTQ+ community would love to be told they’re simply “practicing” along with your suggestion of “canceling them back into the closet.” Is that so they can stand beside you?

    Remember, most of you are shitting on a young and talented broadcaster who was nearly unalived. My gut suspects denial of science isn’t the worst of your ills.

  12. Archer, did I touch a nerve?

    DREX is an average broadcaster at best, DJ or when doing so as a talkshow host. I have listened to many DJ’s and talkshow hosts over the years who DREX is not in their league. Competent, sure, OK! But more a dime of a dozen type host/DJ.

    As for the words practising homosexual, THAT IS WHAT HE IS! What is your concern? He lives with/sleeps with another man and probably has had homosexual hookups with other men in his life. Is that not the definition of a practicing homosexual?

    Look I never said anything bad about his medical condition. I wish no harm to him. I noted though that he is a hypocrite and a sick man for trashing other’s rights over their bodies concerning the jabs. It is interesting for a practicing homosexual male who obviously demands his rights to do with his body sexually anything he wants, but he has the gaul to attack others who do not want to be a experimented on with non properly approved injections.

  13. This is fascinating. A practising homosexual. Kinda like a practising lawyer: a person who is admitted to the legal profession and who holds a practising certificate entitling the person to practise that profession.

    I wonder what schools offer courses or what organizations hand out certificates entitling someone to practise homosexuality.

    What about practising heterosexuals? Does anybody ever say “I am a practising heterosexual”? I never heard that term. So why would anybody refer to somebody as a practising homosexual.

    And I think we know the answer. Some people think it is ok to be a homosexual as long as they don’t engage in sexual activity, that one remains celibate. Those people believe that a “practising homosexual” is committing a sin.

    That is not my view and I don’t think the majority of the people of Canada are thinking that way either. By using “practising” as as a descriptor you are showing a negative bias whether you intend to or not.

    That doesn’t mean we can’t discuss Drex’s position on vaccines. But his sexual orientation no matter how you spin it has nothing to do with the topic.
