10 days ago i watched my best friend crash an airplane and walk away. We talked about flying and life and death and wondered how many people had walked away from 4 plane crashes. Jerry went back to the states to get us another King Air. On his return trip to skydive cuautla lightning struck and the wings and engines came off the plane at 12,000 feet. The funniest most awesome crazy pilot and friend the world would ever know is gone. Thank you for the flights, the beers, the laughs, the barrel rolls and the fly bys at 15 feet over my head. Peurto Escondido will never be the same place without you Jerry Jacquin.
Jerry was the pilot here at Skydive Cuautla in Mexico. He was a former DZO from Illinois and an AFF instructor and an awesome pilot with over 6,000 hours in a King Air. Your family here will never forget you. You fucking Gringo!
