Base jumping is a fun activity that involves jumping off stationary objects and deploying a parachute to ensure a safe landing. The abbreviation “BASE” stands for the four types of stationary objects: buildings, antennas, spans and earth. Participants exit a fixed object such as a cliff, wait for an optional free fall, and then deploy a parachute to slow their descent and land.

Chris served as an instructor for Skydive Buckeye. The group expressed their sadness at his death in a moving Facebook message. They also conveyed their sincere condolences to his family.
