Jay Marshall : 1919 – 2005

 

Jay Marshall and Lefty

We are quite certain this is no longer news to anyone in the magic world.

The New York Sun has a nice write-up about Mr. Marshall.

Jay Marshall’s passing has been noted affectionately by magicians and magic-lovers all over the world.

His impact on our art was so much greater than the link he provided to Chicago’s rich magic history. Chicago is our home town and the place of our physical birth as well as our delivery into the wonderful world of magic. Chicago magic was Jay Marshall to us.

Magic Inc. was every bit the Mecca that Colon’s Abbott?s was and perhaps even more so.

Mr. Marshall never lost his wonderful sense of humor and love for our art.

He was at the age where he no longer had to fake an interest in the art form upon which his career was based and yet he remained one of its biggest supporters.

With his cat, Ali Bongo at the foot of his bed, he passed on to the loving embrace of those who had gone to make a place for him.

We will miss Mr. Marshall and Lefty.
