The Prince of the Air, Jay Cochrane, has passed away at age 69 after his battle with pancreatic cancer.
Jay was born in Sudbury, Canada and was well-known all over the world for his incredible wirewalking feats. He held 7 world records, with his latest being “Longest cumulative distance on a highwire over 100 meters high” that he claimed last year in Niagara Falls. He also set the “Longest and highest combined skywalk” in 1995 when he walked 2,098 feet at a height of 1,340 feet across the Yangtze River. There was a crowd of 200,000 people and this helped make him a legend.
