Jenna Bush Hager recently went skydiving on live television. The segment was on The TODAY Show, where Jenna works. She said she went skydiving to honor her late grandfather, George H.W. Bush. Turns out that on his birthday, he would go skydiving sometimes. So, Jenna decided to honor him by carrying on the tradition.

She admitted that before he passed away, he told her, “Don’t forget to enjoy the game. Don’t be scared to be in the ring, and don’t forget to enjoy every moment — to live every moment.” To help her with the dive, she asked for the help of the Golden Knights. They are the Army’s parachute team and George used them to jump when he went skydiving.

And I will jump because I’m in the game, enjoying every moment and feeling closer to him in the heavens.”
