SEALY, TX – If you have ever thought “I can’t,” maybe Jack Grayson will change your mind.

Grayson was born on October 8, 1923. Tuesday was his 90th birthday, and he celebrated by jumping out of a plane.

The founder of the Houston-based American Productivity and Quality Center, co-founder of the Houstonian and former Nixon administration official says he’s not one to back down from a challenge.  And you could say he put his money where his mouth is.  To celebrate his birthday he went skydiving, with cameras rolling.

NewsFix was in Sealy to watch Grayson jump from 14,000 feet, and soar through the air at more than 120 miles per hour.

He landed safe and sound.

Grayson attributes his good health and energy level at 90 years old to exercise, a good attitude and a good wife.

“But your attitude is one of the greatest things that will keep you alive,” he says. “Never think of the end, always think of what you’re doing.”
