Blog Post: Employee of the Week! Meet Jason Graves

November 9, 2017

When you board Skydive Suffolk aircraft for your skydive, you’ll likely see Jason Graves giving a smile and wave from the cockpit.

Jason is a pilot at Skydive Suffolk and loves to take first-timers and skydiving pros alike up in the air for an unforgettable adventure. “For new skydivers, I call the experience an air baptism,” he laughs.

Jason, a Californian who came to Norfolk through the Navy, received his pilot’s license at age 17 and went on his first skydive at 18 years old. A love of all things air travel led him to Skydive Suffolk in summer 2017 to join the Skydive team.

Jason, now 43, is an experienced pilot who will make sure your first skydiving experience is the time of your life!
