Her mom posted on Facebook today, “Tragically we lost our oldest daughter today.” Jeanna and the tandem instructor, Nick Esposito suffered a parachute malfunction and were killed during the dive. Jeanna had just graduated high school and her parents say that she was not a general “thrill seeker.” She wanted to become a High School English teacher. Nick, 35, who has been skydiving for almost 10 years leaves behind a wife. There is an ongoing investigation to determine the fault in the parachute malfunction.
