WINSTED, MN – Growing up near the Osceola, WI skydiving club, Joe Johnson often imagined what it’d be like to leap out of a plane and soar through the atmosphere.
His first jump didn’t happen until his 28th birthday, but Johnson quickly made up for lost time.
“Now, 12 years later, I’ve done 10,000 jumps in eight different countries,” he said.
