Please get the facts. The Jersey Journal in completely inaccurate. There was no issue with the jump, the parachute, or anything other than drowning.

This blurb is disgracefully inaccurate and insulting to everyone that loved Rob. Please do as the previous poster said and get the facts before publishing.

He landed in the water not the beach where he wanted to land. I would say this was a skydiving accident. Rob verbalized that he knew it was a dangerous sport and that he could get killed. He loved the thrill. And we loved him very much.

Not only was the skydiving part incorrect, but Robert was survived by 3 siblings not 2 and Robert was 28 not 29. Ranieri Sr is giving wrong info
