Jason Gadino is Jay Jay the Balloon Guy, the Family Entertainment Specialist !

jay jay with his balloon machine gun A graduate of The New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Management Information Systems, I have worked in corporate America for the past 20 years at such noted companies as AT&T, American Express, Sony, Panasonic, Nexus, The Bank of NY, National Community Bank of NJ, Hill and Knowlton, J. Walter Thompson, assorted law firms, and the list goes on and on. I've taught thousands of computer training classes in Microsoft and Lotus Applications to hundreds of thousands of students since 1987 and have written over 100 computer technical training manuals. And that was all just during the week.

It finally became clear that entertaining only on weekends just wouldn’t do. My computer training classes became infused with such an entertaining flair that everyone could see my true calling clearly reached far beyond the world of PC training. On weekends I was a busy professional "ON AIR" radio Disc Jockey and a "Mobile" DJ for hundreds of weddings and private parties with over 20 years of experience. I proudly tout the distinction as the most requested wedding DJ on the east coast for SOUND DECISION WEDDING DJ’s for 2 years in a row before they finally branched out on their own. Deciding to live my dreams 24-7 since 9/11/2001, I left the warm safety of corporate computer training classrooms for a full time career as an independent children’s entertainer. I can now usually be found blowing soap bubbles or practicing balloon twisting making my amazing original balloon creations.

I am now an Award Winning Balloon Artist and Certified Bubble-ologist bringing tons of smiles and joy to parties all over the tri-state area with my appearances as a Balloon Artist and performing my new interactive bubble magic show which is really driving the kids wild.

Yes, I'm full of hot air, but what I do with all that air will simply dazzle and amaze you.

Update February 2009 ...
I just wrapped up shooting my part in an upcoming episode on the new ABC series called "The Unusuals", a comedy/detective show that I'm told will be premiering in March. I played the BALLOON GUY for a children's party featured in episode 5 which will air in late March, early April 2009. So be on the look out, OK? It's supposed to be a dream sequence of this guy looking into a house while a "Norman Rockwellian" super happy kids birthday party is happening with the whole family playing with balloons and laughing etc, etc,. I'm really happy with the results and I'm proud of the work.

Update March 2009 ...
