I've wanted to make a post on this human for awhile now. I met Jessey a few years ago in LA. It was literally at the last minute, that i had a chance to do one more shoot, and it ended up being him. I can say, from first impressions, that he impressed. He had a bright smile, a glowing aura about him, and a warm personality, with a lot of charm. And he's really funny. And talented. And he does magic. But i will get to that. The point is, sometimes you meet a person, whether through work or chance, and you know its someone you will get along with. A good person that can light up a room.
We met again, quite briefly, this last visit to NYC. It was one of the highlights of my trip. Even if it was a short visit. The same friendly, charming and funny guy, grounded and humble, came for a catch up and some portraits. But now, i find out he does magic. And he's really good at it. I smiled and it took me back to when things mattered that don't matter anymore- surprise and curiosity. That youthful curiosity which so many people lose. This brought it back. Something simple, yet powerful. And i thank him for that.
You have a bright future ahead and i am sure you will go from strength to strength. Show NYC some glorious magic :) Until we meet again, my friend. @jaysteevie
