The Jet

Jethro Dionisio, "the Jet" because of the speed of his hands, is a six-time world champion in pistol shooting. He won his first national title in 1989 at the age of 17. He won his first international title in California the following year. From practical shooting, Dionisio has now shifted to shotgun firing.

Jethro Dionisio's impressive championship record includes three Steel Challenge (World Speed Shooting Championship) crowns (1990, 1992, 1993) and three World Shoot-off Championships (1993, 1994, 1995). His six world titles stand as the most dazzling string of world shooting championships in the 1990s.

In an action world traditionally dominated by shooters from the U.S.A., Jethro is the only non-American who has made it into the elite circle of world-class shooting champions. He walks confidently on the same playing field as Rob Leatham, Jerry Barnhart, Doug Koenig, Micky Fowler and John Pride.

Early Life

Dionisio's adolescent years were spent on the shooting race-tracks of the world. While most kids were playing teenage games, the youthful Jethro was shooting for the world records. His father, Mang Joe Dionisio, was always by his side orchestrating their every move. Every Jethro Dionisio championship is a Joe Dionisio championship because Mang Joe is the moving spirit behind the success of the Jet.
