has entertained audiences around the world for the past 15 years. In high school, he had a passion for sports and also enjoyed singing in church. He discovered a deeper love of singing at Wichita State University where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Music.
JC performed various roles including Rodolfo in La Boheme, Tamino in The Magic Flute, Ernesto in Don Pasquale, Henrick in A Little Night Music and even Miss America’s duet partner at the 1997 Miss Kansas Pageant.
After college, JC traveled to Lucca, Italy where he sang in the Puccini festival under the direction of acclaimed Italian maestro Lorenzo Malfatti. He then created a home base in Katy, TX before sailing the high seas aboard over 75 cruise ships worldwide with his one man show. This allowed JC to create a program with many different genres of music and world class arrangements which eventually led to his idea of forming The Texas Tenors with his two best friends. His most memorable performance though turned out to be from college where he found the young woman who would become his wife. Jennifer Vannatta, Miss Kansas 1998, married JC in 2004. They have three children; Jackson, Jenson and Jennings.
