A Life Well Lived: Jim Whittaker on Everest, Risk, and Adventure

Eric Becker created this short tribute to Jim Whittaker, my father, for a recent Seattle University event. It mixes some incredible footage from the American Mount Everest Expedition in 1963 with some footage from my Everest expedition in 2012. Dad has some amazing quotes and commentary here as well. Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be posting regular blog updates with content relating to the 50th anniversary (May 1st) of the first American ascent of Mount Everest. https://www.facebook.com/video/embed?video_id=10151585506009518
