Jason Bishop | Luncheon Keynote

Jason is an illusionist and magician who has starred in two Off-Broadway productions and has been featured on NBC’s Today Show and CW Network’s Masters of Illusion. While his fast-paced illusions are entertaining, perhaps his greatest trick has been turning a nightmare of a childhood into the real-life story of a self-made rising star. Jason entered foster care at age 7, and developed an interest in magic to escape the harsh reality of his life. Today, his story inspires us to never give up hope and believe in magic.
