Create the Opening or Closing WOW for YOUR Next Event

When he’s not wowing audiences and empowering others, he enjoys spending time at home with the real stars of the show, his beautiful wife, Stacey, and their daughters. Jon and Stacey are the creators of the Miracles & Magic Foundation. This annual Las Vegas-style grand-illusion, comedy and magic show features the world’s best magical and variety entertainers.

Their goal is to provide children who are living with a life threatening illness – and their families – a day away from the realities of hospitals and chemo treatments, and instead provide a chance to feel like a kid again, experiencing the comedy and wonderment of magic and laughter. The profits from Jon’s book, Significance…In Simple Moments, in addition to sponsorships, donations, and public ticket sales, have helped raise over a million dollars to continue to provide life experiences for these children and their families, touching the lives of thousands.
