Jeff Shapiro is the Athlete Team Captain.  He has been a KAVU athlete for more than a decade and is part of the heartbeat of the company. Dedicated, passionate, and professional, he’s cultivated a wide range of skills over his life. He spends much of his time in the air flying his Backcountry Super Cub, paragliding, sky jumping, BASE jumping, wingsuit flying, or hang gliding. He also practices falconry with his bird Cyrus, runs ultra marathons, and is an elite level rock and alpine climber.  Best of all, Jeff spreads inspiration and good will wherever he roams. This includes working with fellow KAVU athlete, Nick Greece, on the Cloudbase Foundation, which helps support the communities where they fly. When not engaged in some epic expedition, Jeff is at home in Missoula with his wife Kara and daughter Nya.
