Big shout out to Buzz from Javier Ortiz Photography for the amazing pics!
Rock Sky Market first opened in February 2011. We opened a very small gear store to go with a brand new Cessna DZ, started by some friends of ours. They were very small beginnings with some T-shirts, a few pairs of gloves and some rubber bands, but this idea of a gear store, along with the fun jumpers from the area immediately started growing on us, and it didn’t take long to realize that we loved what we were doing.
We (Steve and Jenny) have been in the sport since 1990 and 1996 respectively. During this time we have followed the professional skydiving evolution of starting as packers, and then becoming cameramen and AFF-Is. Steve moved on to eventually become a Tandem I/E, AFF I/E, and Coach Course Examiner, and I eventually became a Master Rigger. This next phase of our skydiving career- providing people with gear and gear advice- has forged an even deeper connection to the skydiving community, making it extremely fulfilling and rewarding.
Since those small beginnings in 2011, Rock Sky Market has steadily expanded to a fully stocked gear store offering full-rig packages and just about anything else a skydiver could want, on top of a full service rigging loft. And as of March 2014, we are open for business at the impressive facilities of Chicagoland Skydiving Center in Rochelle, IL. Rock Sky Market is on site with a fully stocked gear store, and the Rock Loft is also open for business just upstairs with an even greater capacity to serve skydivers. Although we have moved from Plymouth Sky Sports to focus on this new endeavor, the people at PSS will always be family to us.
