A Port St. Lucie man was so inspired by President George H.W. Bush's skydiving jump on his 90th birthday, that he decided to do the same thing.

Jack Grimner (also known as "Captain Jack") calls himself an adventurer.

On Sunday, he decided to celebrate his 90th birthday with family members by doing a tandem skydive at Skydive Sebastian.

Jack's daughter and other relatives joined him in the jump.

When asked how he planned to celebrate birthday number 91, he said he'll be happy staying at home with a nice cocktail and enjoy being on land.
