104-year-old skydiver’s world record jump in Ottawa postponed to Friday

Centenarian to make jump at Skydive Chicago

A 104-year-old Chicago woman’s attempt to become the oldest skydiver was postponed to Friday, Sept. 22, at Skydive Chicago, just outside Ottawa.

Dorothy Hoffner’s tandem jump initially was rescheduled to Sunday, but the rainy weather again postponed it to later in the week.

The record is held by a 103-year-old from Sweden, who set the record in May 2022.

Hoffner went skydiving when she was 100.
