MAGICIAN MEETS MENTALIST
Part of Tessa's childhood was spent living on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. As a young girl, she was introduced to the mysteries of tea leaf readers, fire eaters and glass walkers. During high school, Jeff's grandfather took him on a Caribbean cruise ship where he met, and was fascinated by, magician Bernard Reid.
In 1983 while working as a radio announcer, Jeff was doing magic shows on the side. Tessa had recently moved to Canada to work as a fashion model. A mutual friend and fashion designer in Toronto invited them to work some magic together in an upcoming fashion show. They've been a team ever since. The magic has never stopped.
A mix of passions. A dash of intuition. A magician's touch. When destiny eventually connected Jeff and Tessa with a pair of legendary master mentalists, they learned the cherished inside secrets of Second Sight. The Evasons are one of very few couples in history who have mastered this unique and unusual talent.
AWARD WINNING SHOW
The Evasons have been honored with some of the top awards in their field. They are the first mentalists in history to receive the prestigious Milbourne Christopher Award, considered to be the Academy Award of magic, from the Society of American Magicians (past recipients include David Copperfield, Doug Henning and Siegfried and Roy). The Evasons are internationally acclaimed and highly regarded as the world's foremost mentalist duo!
