We met Jane and her daughter Susannah in Cathedral City near the Pickford Theatres. We found this beautiful spot in the arches of the building and the jumping began.
I was astounded to learn that Jane is 93 years old! I’m so pleased that she came out to play, and share her joy with us. Getting to capture an adventurous and agile woman with so many years of life experience was humbling. I’m inspired and hope to be as active and open to fun and silly experiences when I make it to her age.
Jane is living proof that you’re never too old to jump for joy!
