Greenwood resident taking part in world record sky diving attempt

November 25th, 2013 · Comments

Greenwood resident Jeanna Lee is part of a team attempting a sky diving world record for women’s vertical head-down formation. The attempt will happen this coming weekend at Skydive Arizona in Eloy, Arizona.

Jeanna said the team of 90 women are freeflyers. That means that instead of sky diving in the traditional belly-down position at around 120 mph, they fly at every axis at speeds of at least 150 mph.

Jeanna is an accomplished sky diver with more than 700 jumps. (You may also know her from Kalbi Grill Express, where she works.) This year she was also part of teams that set an Oregon record for 18-way and a Texas record for 34-way jump.

To help offset some of the costs involved in record events, we are selling raffle tickets as a fundraiser. $20/ticket for a chance to win almost $10k worth of skydiving gear! All the proceeds from the tickets I sell will directly support me. The drawing is during the attempts over Thanksgiving weekend. If a non-skydiver wins, you would either have all the gear you need to become a skydiver or I can help them sell everything. If you are interested in purchasing a ticket, you can paypal me at jeannalee@me.com and send me a message with your name, phone number, and email address. Thank you so much!!

Here’s Jeanna’s team setting the Texas record earlier this month. (That’s her by the pink arrow.)
