Retired NFL pro for the Philadelphia Eagles, Jon Dorenbos is also a world-class magician, a survivor of immense personal tragedy, an author, and a remarkably positive and powerful motivational speaker.

Jon Dorenbos played 14 seasons in the NFL, notably making the Pro Bowl twice as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2016, Jon competed on America’s Got Talent, where he showcased his skills as a sleight-of-hand magician, making it to the finals and placing third overall in the competition amongst tens of thousands of competitors. He then put his talent on display as a guest on Ellen, who quickly became one of his biggest fans and advocates.

In 2017, after his trade to the New Orleans Saints, Jon was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition requiring emergency open-heart surgery. Despite this spurring his retirement from the NFL, Jon’s positive outlook on life and determination to help and inspire others never faltered.

At just 12 years old, Jon’s life was forever changed when his father did the unthinkable and killed his mother. Essentially orphaned, Jon was forced to navigate the foster care system as his father stood on trial for murder. Dorenbos turned to magic and sports as an escape, honing his skills to become among the best magicians and athletes in the world. 

His book, Life Is Magic, recounts his journey from tragedy to self-discovery, and offers a roadmap for how to mitigate self-doubt and choose happiness.

Dorenbos, known for his great sense of humor and positive outlook on life, is a seasoned motivational and keynote speaker with over 10 years of experience. His moving keynote presentations include the inspiring Life Is Magic, which shares its title with his bestselling book and recounts his journey from tragedy to self-discovery, offering a roadmap for how to mitigate self-doubt and choose happiness.
