My name is Jessica Johnston. I have been travelling around Australia working, competing and have been highly involved in the skydiving industry for 7 years now with over 1200+ solo skydives. I started skydiving at Skydive Ramblers west of Brisbane. I'm super grateful for the amazing journey I am on. We come for the skydives, stay for the skydivers! My goal for 2022 is to make the Australian Parachute Team for 2022, and get a medal and an average of over 440km/h at the World Skydiving Championships in the USA in October 2022. Another goal is to work towards my freefly coach rating.
