A man who touched so many lives. A helper to all who knew him.
Wes was an inspiration to many people and skydivers. Being one of the top in the world of skydiving, Wes held many pro ratings and licenses. Some of his accomplishments include: videographer for national skydiving teams, tandem master; AFF instructor; professional canopy pilot and Red Bull team member.
He was also co-owner along with Aja Niemann of Skydive Tahoe, a project that took close to four years to complete.
