We were startled to learn this evening (early morning) that the incomparable J.C. Wagner passed away Sunday evening after battling colon cancer for almost 10 months.
J.C. Wagner was the Bar Magician's Bar Magician. He published several outstanding books and DVDs each with truly commercial magic.
You may have been following J.C. Wagner's condition on his web site. News of his diagnosis, surgery, recovery, chemo treatments, and developments were posted on fairly regular intervals.
For a while, it seemed like there was hope against hope. In the last week, though, we learned J.C. was moved into Hospice and his planned chemo treatment was put off.
J.C. was a regular at The Little Club on Coronado Island, California every Saturday. He served up drinks and fantastic magic performed just inches from the astonished magician and lay patrons.
It is still a shock to us here at Inside Magic. We will keep his family and loved ones in our prayers.
