Recently, our “favorite four year old”, Jess Stark was mentioned as a diving role model by Jona, the Cruise Director of the Philippine Siren. Jess was diving with us on our recent trip to the Philippines aboard the Philippine Siren when he met Jona. Like he does with everyone, he charmed her but more than that he impressed her with his stories and his love for diving. Jess is a beautiful diver underwater and he loves being there.
Someone asked me why do we refer to him as our favorite four year old? Well, he is a little mischievous and like a four year old he sometimes wanders off in the airport, the hotel and underwater. Never far but something has caught his eye and he is then focused on it. So like a four year old, you sometimes have to keep an eye on him. But don’t worry, he loves the title!
Here is Jona’s, the cruise director on board S/Y Philippine Siren comment”
“My diving role model is Jesse Loren Stark. He is a US Navy Veteran Diver, who has more than 8,000 dives under his belt. He started diving when he was only 14 years old. He’s worked in nuclear power plants, as a rescue diver for the police and as a boat captain for a few years. His life story is an inspiration to many and his love for the ocean is immeasurable.”
Thanks Jess, we can’t wait to go diving with you again!
