We love Jarrett Martin! A skydiving pro and T4 paraplegic from a speedflying accident in 2008, he’s back in the sky with 3,000 jumps and counting, and he’s now working as a rigger for Skydive Dubai. He also made history as the first ever paraplegic to basejump this past summer in Norway…
In Jarrett Martin’s world, the place he loves to be the most is in the sky – free-falling at 100 miles an hour with the wind in his face. But after his injury five years ago, he feared the one thing he loved the most would no longer be possible.
Jarrett grew up in a family-run skydive business; skydiving was and still is in his blood. The notion of no longer skydiving was never something he was willing to accept, and he never had to. Within months of his injury he was back skydiving, but the AMAZING thing about Jarrett’s return isn’t just the fact that he’s back in the sky, it’s everything he’s also done and making history in the process.
