Jan Davis


Jan Davis' life was truly a celebration: a celebration of love, passion, daring, and adventure. Life didn't pass her by; she lived every moment as if it were her last. She left us, tragically on October 22, during a peaceful protest jump off El Capitan on a beautiful sunny afternoon in Yosemite National Park.

Jan's family would like you to remember her as she was ­ vivacious, radiant, and affectionate. She always savored life and encouraged others to share her infectious enthusiasm. Once given the gift of flight, she soared, as we know she does now.

Tom Sanders has received an overwhelming outpouring of love during the last few days. The house is filled with the fragrance of flowers, and he is deeply touched by your sentiments and support. There were many of us who loved her dearly, and the light of her life will remain in our hearts forever.

Rather than mourn the loss of this special lady, you are invited to celebrate her life at Skydive Elsinore on Saturday, November 6th. Jan's final skydive will be with her husband from the top of the world's tallest waterfall. His scattering of her ashes will be the ultimate tribute to the Queen of Angel Falls.

Tom discovered the following words. Written by Jan, her philosophy for living provides the perfect summation to this dedication:


"I believe life is about action and passion, and you truly can't begin to live life until you overcome your fear of dying."
