Jesse Joyner is one of the few people in the world who have completed a marathon while juggling. Jesse speaks nationwide to thousands of youth and families each year with his comedy juggling and unicycle show.
We are an apartment community that is very involved with our residents. We put together community functions throughout the year to show our appreciation and to give them the opportunity to have some fun! We are always looking for new ideas and I stumbled across the Gigsalad website. When I found Jesse Joyner on your site, I thought we were hiring a juggler. But much to my surprise and pleasure, we got so much more than we anticipated! Jesse is a true all-around entertainer! His performance was suited perfectly for people of all ages and lifestyles. Not only did he juggle, but he through in some balancing acts, a unicycle stunt, and a comedic touch that had everyone laughing hysterically! I have never in 3 years of working at my community seen my residents have as much fun as they did watching his performance. He even used volunteers to get the resident involved with his act, which the kids absolutely loved! If you're looking for a performer for your next event, Jesse Joyner is the perfect choice for any occasion. He is professional, friendly, and amazingly talented! We're so glad we found him and hired him to perform. His show will definitely go down in the history books of our community as being one of the best resident events we have ever had!
I have had Jesse on our church campus on multiple occasions. He is a very talented juggler! He is a professional in every way. He is a great communicator and has his audience on the edge of their seats. Our church family loved him. I would highly recommend booking Jesse for your next event.
My husband and I just attended a basketball celebration for our grandchildren at our church, First Redeemer in Cumming, Ga. This was the most fun!!! We were expecting the usual awards ceremony at the end of the season but to our surprise Jesse's performance was wonderful...unlike anything we had ever seen. Loved the way he shared the Gospel message during his juggling, and not in a way that anyone would be offended, no matter where or if they attended another church. We can't say enough for the performance. Thank you Jesse!
Response from Jesse Joyner Juggling:
Pat, thank you so much for your kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed the program and I appreciate you taking the time to let others know about it. Have a blessed day, -Jesse
Jesse is so ridiculously easy to work with! He is extremely professional and did an incredible job engaging the audience. My guest infant to 80's all had a great time and wanted to know how I found him!! I will definitely recommend him and use him again! Bravo. Karen Henrico Va
I've seen Jesse teach a number of times now as we have taken a group of kids from our church two different years to see him. Both weeks we saw him, he was so great. I think he is the best children's communicator I have seen. He is engaging in his personality and skill set. He is approachable and is great in one-on-one conversations with kids and his theological training is robust, so he is able to give a strong theological and biblical explanation of a topic in a way that is kid-friendly and engaging. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Response from Jesse Joyner Juggling:
Thanks so much for the kind words, Matt! I could say the same for you as well. I'm looking forward to working with you again this summer at Mt. Lebanon.
We were doubly blessed by Jesse Joyner, January 11-13, 2013. Our first blessing was the privilege of having Sarah, Jesse’s wife, and Kezzie, Jesse’s daughter stay with us a couple days while Jesse performed at Cherith Hall. The whole family was a delight to come to know and their love of Jesus touched our hearts deeply, especially Jesse’s daughter.
The second blessing was to see Jesse uplift the guest audience at Cherith Hall. He connected with the guests, not only with his performance, but in sharing bible truths. Guests approached us after Jesse’s performance saying it was terrific and a most enjoyable evening out in a long time. His words of encouragement touched one guest deeply.
If you are looking for a warm, fun, and yet serious presentation of God’s word and biblical principles; Jesse’s performance will reach the hearts of both adults and children.
My nine year old son thanked me over and over again for his party. Jesse was very entertaining and highly professional. He made my son feel very special on his big day.
Jesse helped make our daughter's 7th birthday party a huge success! He had the children on the edge of their seats during the juggling, had them laughing with his jokes, had them "oohing and aaahing" while juggling fire and ended the party by creating each child their own animal balloons!! And the parents had just as much fun. :)
Jesse was asked to educate and entertain 400 freshmen for an hour during a school assembly in the gym. He did an outstanding job, and the students are still talking about the event. As a matter of fact, the upper classmen were upset that they did not get to attend this function. We plan to have him return again next year.
I appreciated his ability to weave character building ideas into all aspects of his performance. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a unique and engaging speaker that juggles.
We invited Jesse to help our church kick off our fall Wednesday night program. He offered a program that was entertaining for all ages, especially elementary students and their families. Jesse creatively used juggling to teach truths about the Bible. Highly recommended.
Some time ago we were fortunate enough to have Jesse perform for our daughter’s 7th or 8th grade birthday. Jesse was back in Ohio for another performance and he was willing to fill in at the party for the afternoon. It was a blast! The kids at the party ranged from 4 or 5 through the early teens and they loved the show. Jesse captured their attention and never let go. The kids were excited by the juggling and they paid their full attention to the show. Even the impatient six year old boys were focused on Jesse. After the grand finale, juggling flaming batons, the kids were very, very impressed. Jesse spent time talking to the kids after the show. The kids and the parents in attendance, were all thrilled they had come.
Jesse gave an amazing Easter message that was fun and engaging for kids of all ages!
We had Jesse do 2 shows back to back for ages K-6. From start to finish they were great shows. Jesse does a great job keeping the kids attention and does amazing juggling feets with lots of great life messages throughout his show. I would have him back again.
Jesse shared at our Upward Celebration and was absolutely magnificent. He was great to work with and provided excellent entertainment/Gospel presentation. Jesse is very engaging and brings so much to the table.
