even money at least one is jumping

That actually seems like remarkably low odds, given the track record of the past 5+ years. I'd call it at least 2:1 in favor of a jumper being on the list.

Technically speaking, being shoved out of the door of a dropship (while said dropship is in flight) doesn't really count as "Jumping".   ;D

Noooo...but you just have to strap a couple (or four) jump packs to them. It'd jump once at least...
