Leo Dean of Albany now has his sights set on 200 jumps.

Dean took up skydiving after he was widowed in 1998. He tells the Albany Times Union he wondered if he had "the nerve to step out the door" and was pleased to find out he did.

Dean is a veteran of World War II and still works as vice president of a financial services company. He made his 100th skydive yesterday and says he won't give it up till he has to.
