I was, and still am, bummed to hear of Chris' passing. I will always remember him making comments during my first wingsuit flight. "I've seen 2 x 4 boards that bend better than you!!" Nearing 100 jumps later, I've kept the faith!
Chris took me out for my first wingsuit flight at the WFFC in '05 when the Birdman school turned me away because I was just a few jumps shy of 200. He loaned me a Prodigy and took me up for one last jump before I went back home, not even letting me pay for his jump ticket. I only knew him for a few short hours, but he completely made my year. He will be missed and remembered.
