He taught me how to land a canopy without ripping the seat of my pants open. It's sad that nobody else will get to take another one of his awesome courses. Or hang out with him. He was a really fun dude.
That was an awesome video. JT lived Large. Such a shame to see such talented hotties go in too soon. Looks like he had a lot more life to live. Condolences to the PD Factory team and to JTs friends and family. What an amazing Dude. And the footage was absolutely captivating.
I never met Tizzle. I was just a "friend" on Facebook. I posted this on his wall after the accident and got a lot of likes from his peeps so I thought I would post it hear too. Still wish I could have taken one of his courses.
"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home."
This was not specifically for JT, but it's a video I had started and forgotten about four years ago. It's all footage from the summer of 2008 during Jedi's second year with JT and the fun projects and trips that involved. I decided to finish it recently, and I thought I'd share.
