If anyone has the strength to pull through a coma, it’s MTV host TJ Lavin, says his close pal Sal Masekela.

“He has the most amazing spirit and will to live,” the former E! host told PEOPLE at the Ryan Sheckler Celebrity Skins Classic at Trump National Golf Course in Los Angeles. “He is someone who has banked up an immense amount of good karma over the course of his life.”

Masekela says Lavin’s mom, who has been “by his side constantly,” also feels “absolutely positive knowing that [Lavin] is going to be okay.”
