Audrey was a genuinely nice lady who I first met at one of the POP's World Meets. She had a long skydiving life and was known at DZ's across the globe.

Fly on Audrey. 'Remember back at "Old Perris" Audrey always wore a smile and that Aussie Boonie hat with the one side cocked up!! That "Star" up there just grew by one more, Fly on Audrey, Fly on.

This is very sad news. She was always an encouraging site at Whenuapai when I was a new Pops. She was a unique lady. Blue skies, Audrey.

She put me out on my very first jump. A static line, gutter gear, Cessna 182 jump at Perris Valley in Oct of 78. W. Ski and Doo-da taught the FJC the weekend prior, but we were winded and came back the following weekend and jumped with her. There were 56 of us in that FJC and we were originally going to go out of the DC-3. With characters like these, it's no wonder I fell in love with the sport.

Robert she was one of a kind. I first met her at Perris when she first came over. She could drive you crazy but you could never get mad.

She was a great friend over the yrs and was a blast this past yr on FaceBook. Love her comments and all the photos from her and her daughter Pam. She will be missed and of course, never forgotten.
So, where have you been Sparky? Did you divorce FaceBook?

I only had her for two jumps and she left two impressions: She seemed very competent and she made it FUN! I remember that hat too.

I met Audrey when she was hanging out for some months at Archway in Valdalia, IL. Neat lady.

Hi 3331,

I only met her once, at the first POPS World Meet in Australia; but she was sure a fun person.

IIRC she was the first or second person to be hauled off in an ambulance when accuracy started. I was either the fourth of fifth to be hauled off. Pirate

Started causing problems with one of the computers I use. Besides I never did figure out how it works. Crazy

sad news...
but she is meeting with some great people and old friends where she is now.

http://www.swisspops.ch/...004/gal5/galerie.htm Here she is with Theo Fritschy who left us 10 weeks ago

I was lucky to meet her at the World POP's Meet in Gruyres 2004, and she did impress me a lot, she was camping with the meet staff (even after receiving lots of invitations to apartments) Smile

Lots of love from Switzerland

Re: [piisfish] Audrey Jackman [In reply to] Can't Post

 Nah ,no pictures, I was cruising around Europe on a motorbike at the time and called into the meet when i saw some parachutes from the road as I was passing...only got there in time for the last two days in time to gatecrash the prizegiving, but met up with the Kiwi guys....Eric, Jim Mclean, Audrey and a few guys I had not met, plus a few Jumpers I'd met at various meets around the world over the years....

Audrey was in fine form as I recall....mostly driving everybody crazy.....as she sometimes did....

Bummer news. Glad I'd gotten in touch with her in the past few months. Always a cheerful disposition, even in tough times. First met her at Pelicanland back in '76-'77. Here's a shot of her at the 1980 (?) Nationals. RIP, Audrey.
