Ryan Jahnke (born on March 21, 1978 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American figure skater. He is the 2003 U.S. national bronze medalist and was the 1993 Novice National Champion. After the 2005-2006 Olympic season, Jahnke retired from competitive skating and now spends his time coaching. Though he has kept his eligibility, he skates "professionally", making his professional debut in the 2006 Brian Boitano Skating Spectacular. Ryan is currently developing an online website called Myskatingmall. It will serve the skating community by reducing costs and increasing choices for skating families while raising funds for figure skating clubs.

Jahnke married Tashiana Foreman on June 1, 2002. The couple had a son, Zayin Nicholas Jahnke, in November 2011.[1]
