Tammy Jardine

Boss

The real boss. Tammy takes pride in the DZ and dedicates herself to keep things running smooth. She spends more time at the DZ than anyone, and when she's not there she can be found hangin' out with her dogs.

Tom Lanners

Safety & Training Advisor (S&TA)

Tom was born and raised in Alaska and grew up enjoying outdoor activities like snow machining, hunting, and camping. He got into skydiving when his dad bought them both a tandem jump for his 21st birthday. He kept at it and his dad didn't. When he's not skydiving or base jumping he's normally thinking about skydiving or base jumping. Some fun facts: He's 1/2 Irish, 1/2 Italian and 1/2 German. He's got a great sense of humor (at least he thinks so). Darkest Secrets: He wholeheartedly believes that Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On is an awesome song and deserved all the awards it got. Also, not many people know that the Twilight films are loosely based on his life. Come out and Skydive with him!

The Sky Crew- The Fun people

Jeremy van Wulven

Xolo Mayor, Jeremy van Wolfma

Jeremy has been skydiving since 2009, he is a BASE jumper, Master Rigger, and video flyer who has experienced some of the most renowned jumps in the world including the Blue Hole, the San Diego Coronado Bridge BASE jump (for which he received community service), and the half-time jump into the Club Tijuana Soccer Stadium dressed as (the lovable, but sometimes violent, mascot) Xolo Mayor. He has served as a rigger for several military courses worldwide. Fun Facts: To serve the community after the Coronado Bridge jump he did a demo jump for the San Diego County Motor Officers Association police motorcycle competition - bet he learned his lesson. He can grow a full beard in two seconds. He is a SANS member (the Society for Advancement of Naked Skydiving). Darkest Secret: He truly believes that naked skydiving is appropriate.
