Jack Jordan


I started working on a local festival board in 1990 and was introduced to Jack Thibault, founder of T.E.A. Productions. Jack invited me to join him at T.E.A. Productions and it was the best decision of my life. I worked along-side Jack Thibault for the past 30 + years and have been honored to learn from the best in the business. In 2021, I took over the business with the blessings of Jack's family. 

I live in southwest Wisconsin and love the University of Wisconsin-Badgers sports programs, as well as the Packers. Don’t hold that against me. I will not let this stand in the way of producing the best show for your event, no matter where your event is located.

I enjoy meeting new people, traveling to new areas, and making new contacts in order to help you achieve your entertainment goals. My passion is creating an outstanding event for each client. I will go the extra mile to help your event be a success.
