For our younger readers, Jerry is a veteran illusionist and has appeared as a performer at many of Abbott’s Magic Get Together 1964, 1965, 1966, 1969, 1971, 1975, 1976, 1979, 1982, 1986, 1999, 2003. Of the over 800 performers in over 70 Get Togethers only 11 other performers have performed at more Get Togethers than Jerry Conklin! Please keep this tremendous performer and his family in your prayers and why not type out a best wishes note right now, print it, and mail it off to Jerry. Its a small price to pay for the years of entertainment he has brought to generations of magic fans.

Richard Hughes wrote a wonderful article recently on Jerry (Richard was unaware of his current health problem when writing the article on December 17, 2009 – click here to view), and I will not even try to compete with his elegance in writing so I hope that you will take another look at his article titled “Colon’s Hidden Treasure” and remember that it represents the feelings from the entire Abbott Magic family.

Jerry and his wife Shirley grace the cover of Newest Tops Magazine in Aug 1984. Shirley passed away in 1987.
