Experienced skydiver and longtime voiceover actor Randy Schell has died after a midair collision during a jump at a southeast Texas skydiving center.
The Houston area center, Skydive Spaceland, said in a statement that two seasoned skydivers deployed parachutes normally during a planned group jump on Saturday but that they later collided and fell to the ground, killing one and injuring the other, The Associated Press reports.
The man who died was identified as Schell by his longtime agent.
His agent, Jenny Bosby, on Sunday described Schell as a “generous, spirited man” who mentored many in his industry.
