Jon Dorenbos | Motivational Speaker

Motivational & Keynote Speaker
Jon’s inspirational life story of triumph over adversity has been retold on national television in features by NBC, HBO, FOX Sports, ESPN, E! True Hollywood Story: An American Story, ABC, and CBS.

Jon Dorenbos tailors his presentations to fit the needs of his audience. He inspires others by sharing his life experiences and NFL stories, relating them to corporate culture. He discusses the importance of discipline, teamwork, perseverance and the acceptance of failure in achieving a common goal. In his words, “Live in vision not circumstance”.

As a professional keynote speaker since 2008, Jon Dorenbos has motivated and wowed audiences including AT&T, Nationwide Insurance, Marriott International, Kroger Foods, Boeing, SAP, Black & Decker, Lincoln Financial, Nexxus, MGM Resorts International, Jackson Hewitt, Merrill Lynch, Taco Bell, Pappa John’s, DigiKey and numerous other Fortune 500 companies.

Jon Dorenbos has been performing magic since the age of 12. He started playing football his freshman year in high school.

When asked what his most proud moment of his career was, Jon responded, “when I was in training camp with the Eagles and competing on America’s Got Talent. Think about it… I was playing in the NFL and performing magic on the #1 TV show simultaneously.

At the top of my game in both professions. I played the season opener against the Cleveland Browns. Got on a jet from Philadelphia to Los Angeles and competed on the Finals of AGT the next night. So cool.”

Jon Dorenbos was traded to the New Orleans Saints during training camp of the 2017 season. It was there that doctors discovered he had a heart condition that would require emergency open heart surgery…which ultimately ended his football career. He appeared on Ellen six weeks after surgery.

Ellen created a game show that Jon hosted. Jon Dorenbos would show up at your house and give you a chance to win money and crazy prizes. Here is one of Jon’s favorite moments hosting that show. After the episode was done filming… the cameras kept rolling as Jon surprised a little girl.

“Live In Vision, Not In Circumstance.”

Jon shares his inspiring story from losing his parents and the age of 12, working through the foster care system to making it to the NFL Pro Bowl. It’s an amazing story of overcoming adversity, heart and perseverance.
