jesse jaber


  • Years in the sport: Skydiving since 2014
  • Current rating: Indoor flight instructor
  • Home DZ: Skydive Chicago
  • Passions/personal interests: Jesse started skydiving in April 2014 and literally fell head over heels in love with the sport. Once he received his skydiving license, he knew that being in the air was his life and he decided to quit his job as a metro transit bus driver, moved across the country and pursued his new found love of body flight. That path landed him his dream job in Chicago as an indoor flight instructor and began his journey to becoming a full time coach. As a founder of Team Horizon, a team dedicated to educating and progressing the skydiving community.
“I’m proud to be part of the GSG team. Come fly with me!”
