My name is Jesse Weyher. I’m an American with dual Citizenship in Latvia. I am a professional skydiver and wind tunnel instructor, teaching all forms of skydiving in both civilian and military applications.
I compete in Canopy Piloting, Speed Skydiving, and in the past, Mixed Formation Skydiving. I won US Nationals in 2018 in advanced canopy piloting and in 2019 earned my spot on three US Parachute Teams-Canopy Piloting, Freestyle Canopy Piloting, and Speed Skydiving. I earned 10th overall out of 92 competitors from all over the world at my first world stage-World Cup of Canopy Piloting in South Africa and earned 6th place in Canopy Freestyle. I am also a part of Swoop Freestyle-a skydiving world tour exhibition. I am also a part of the Head Up Vertical World Record that was completed in 2019.
In my free time, I enjoy Speed flying, Speed riding, Skiing, Surfing, Paragliding, and BASE jumping. I continue to enjoy pushing my limits in these sports as well as passing on my knowledge to others.
