Marc Kopp, of Longwy in eastern France, suffers from the degenerative disease that attacks the central nervous system, impairing the brain's ability to communicate with the body.
According to the New York Daily News, after finishing the challenge, Kopp said that he hoped his action inspires others suffering from the illness.
The 55-year-old, who typically uses a wheelchair, fell from the airplane from 32,800 feet above Everest in tandem with his friend Mario Gervasi, a champion skydiver.
Kopp said that he always wanted adventure in his life just like Tintin, the Belgian comic book character.
He has been lifted to a medical center in Kathmandu, Nepal, where doctors looked for possible injuries. They advised him to stay in bed for the rest of the day.
Kopp described preparation for the jump as 'very painful' and said it left his entire body in discomfort. He practiced riding a horse several hours each day to prepare, the report added.
