Digital Journal writer Markos Papadatos picked Jessica Jane Peterson as his entertainer to watch in 2018. Besides ‘magician,’ Tennessee native Peterson has a bunch of very cool entries on her performer’s resume. She’s also a fire-eater and worked as a crossbow assistant. Calling her a ‘seasoned performer’ barely scratches the surface of her more than 10,000 shows done since the age of 16.
Papadatos interviewed Peterson last year about her act, and it shows the breadth of her skills in entertainment as well as her charming personality. We’ll be watching where she goes next in 2018 too.
