Lee Jackson was tracking the exit Cima Capi. After exiting 3rd, he elected to fly a left line which took him over a ridge. He didn't have the height or glide to clear it , having misjudged his position and failed to make an emergency pull, impacting in full track.
For those of you who had the pleasure of meeting Lee, you could not help but notice just how much of a naturally talented BASE jumper he was. He had an effortless style, a carefree attitude and his antics and thinking outside of the box on a lot of jumps were refreshing and fun. He will be sorely missed by many. Fly Free Lee.
