John and Ana London have been happily married since 2001 when they met while serving in the U.S. Army at Fort Bliss, TX; that is when they first started practicing magic and balloon twisting. After they finished their time in the military, they moved to San Diego where John worked as a magician on the weekends doing private and corporate parties, and during the summer performing magic at Sea World San Diego, all while working full-time at his main job as an inventory manager for Honey Well during the week. Ana was going to school full-time and working as a substitute teacher, but would still occasionally do balloon twisting at family parties and work events.
It was in 2009 when John and Ana adopted their two sons, John Jr. and Jeremiah. The boys were 12 and 13 years old at the time and are now adults. In 2012, John and Ana adopted their daughter Johanna. Johanna is already excited about joining the family business when she is old enough.
John and Ana decided to make their side-business a full-time venture and started JLO Magic & Entertainment in 2013. Since then, they have grown the business from just magic and balloon twisting to include face painting, airbrush temporary tattoos, caricatures, henna tattoos, photo booth, cotton candy and snow cones. They now live in Lacey, Washington with their 7-year-old daughter. “We are having so much fun performing for our clients and training to be the best we can be. We love our work and hope it shows!” – John and Ana London
