The Worthy 30: Jason Burnett
Occupation: student and Olympic athlete
This fella’s “flight time” is as good as his ’tude, which is probably why he nabbed a silver for trampoline at the Beijing Olympics, and why his summer to-do plans include collecting another. When he’s not jumping professionally, he’s hitting the books at the University of Toronto, where he studies philosophy and religion.
