He also was awarded the “CV Perry Advocate for Children Award” in 2008 for his ongoing efforts and fundraising for children with life threatening illnesses through his “Miracles & Magic” program.
When Jon is the keynote speaker, he speaks from the heart. He’s not a comedy magician who decided to turn “speaker.” He’s a father, a husband and a guy who’s worked in the warehouse, flipped burgers, driven a forklift, sat in the cubicle for years, made cold calls, dealt with corporate America, made more cold calls, grew a highly successful sales career, managed a national sales team across 52 offices, flew in private jets with billionaires and even had the stereotypical corner office with the company Mercedes and country club membership. He “gets it” and “it” relates well to both the event planners and audience members.
As a Master of Ceremony and live event and engagement expert, Jon is often asked to host, script and produce events and shows. This has opened doors for multiple television appearances (National: ESPN, The Food Network, Outdoor Channel, Lifetime. Regional: NBC, ABC, FOX, CBS), as well as being the spokesperson for several corporations. As a comedy magician he has been the opening act or appeared with artists such as The American Idol Tour 2007 & 2008, Rascal Flatts and many others while performing in Sydney, New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, London, Las Vegas and many more.
