it’s probably very hard/impossible to jump when you’re floating in an elevator. and to time it correctly.

and i’m not even sure if that would save you. actually, i don’t think it will.
you’re falling as fast as the elevator. even if you manage to jump in the elevator while it’s falling, you’re netto speed will still be very fast towards the bottom. you can’t negate that with a jump. also, after your jump, your speed will have increased again with the same amount you decreased it by jumping in the first place. (what goes up must come down.)
impact will be delayed slightly, but that’s it, i think.
