Sidelined in Checkers

White is moving up the board in the diagrammed
checkers game below.  It's White's turn.  What
series of moves will guarantee White's victory?

Standard checkers rules apply: If a jump is possible,
it must be taken.  If two jumps are possible, either
may be taken, even if one is a multiple jump and the
other isn't.  Crowning a king ends a turn.  The game
is won either by capturing all of the opponent's
pieces or by leaving your opponent unable to move.
