Shaun Jay is a captivating performer, and he is able to connect with a diverse array of audiences. I had the privilege of watching him perform for the physics department in PhysicsPhest 2019 at North Carolina State University. Additionally, his interactive virtual magic show during the coronavirus pandemic created an unforgettable memory of fun and bonding for my family during a difficult time. Shaun’s talents as an illusionist have a profound impact on his audience because he utilizes humor and the power of astonishment to inspire and restore a sense of wonder in people. Beyond the magic he creates, there is something truly delightful and magical about his persona— a heralding back to wide-eyed innocence, amazement, and adventure: a chance to experience childhood as it always should have been.
