I have a Zute Suit from the late 90's that was fast-tracked for the Skydive Chicago 300 way attempts in '98. Wondering if she was involved in its production? Condolences to family and friends.

  Oh baby girl this is so sad.
I remember when you and your dad came out to East Troy, for your birthday to learn to jump together. It was like the air had waited for you to join it. Graceful and gentle in the air. When you were on a load, you did your part without drama or concern. When you went to other DZ', boggie's, para ski meets, you fit in like you had always been there.
The only time I ever heard you say a bad word was when you got a jump suit and it didn't fit. You said, "Guys don't know anything about crotches" It still makes me smile. So you started making jumpsuits yourself.
Love you lady.

If it said Zute Suit it was hers. I know she worked her ass off then finishing them up.

I am sorry to hear about this. I remember as being a class act. I have friends who are still jumping Zute Suits after all these years.

My first RW suit was made by her and I am still jumping it. Jenny was a lot of fun to hang out with and jump with.

Jenny got me a slot on my first big way, a 60-way.

This wasn't the first time and it won't be the last - your post made me smile and cry at the same time. Thinking of Jenny has that affect on me.

I miss her more than words can say.

Jack - Your post remembering Jenny was very touching. She was a great woman and great skydiver. The only reason I got on some of the loads I did was because of her.

I remember when Jenny, Patty, Lynn Squire & I went out to Xenia, Ohio for a weekend. We made a bunch of fun jumps and I have never laughed so hard!

Sad news indeed. Jenny was a wonderful woman, mother and a great skydiver. I've owned and jumped many Zute Sutes, including the one she made me for the 400 way. I will fondly think of Jenny each time I slip on my suit.
