Sincere condolences to JJ and Family

The brother-in-law of six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson was killed Sunday after a skydiving accident near San Diego, Calif.

According to local reports, Jordan Janway, brother of Johnson's wife Chandra, was a "senior parachute rigger and instructor" for Skydive San Diego, and "was teaching a group how to skydive when the incident occurred."

While performing an aerial maneuver, Janway hit another skydiver and may have been knocked unconscious. Although he normally jumped with a safety device in his parachute that deploys when a diver is falling too fast, Janway removed the device for maitenance prior to Sunday's jump.

The Johnson family issued the following statement:

"The Johnsons are saddened by the tragic passing of Chandra's brother, Jordan Janway, 27. Jordan was an incredible son, brother, uncle and friend and will be dearly missed. Please keep the Janway family in your thoughts and prayers. The family asks for privacy at this time."

According to reports, the jumper who survived was wearing a reserve parachute that is set record speed and altitude, and will automatically open if an emergency is detected. Although Janway owned the Cybernetic Parachute Release System (CYPRES), Fink said it was recently sent in for maintenance.

27 is far too young to die. Condolences to the Janway's and Johnson's.

Re: Sincere condolences to JJ and Family

Sad news indeed as when we all grow old and eventually die its one thing, but when someone that young dies its another? Course the argument is skydiving is very dangerous as is auto racing or many other sports and those who choose to take the risks do so, but still sad--condolences to the family. :(
