We all remember Jon Dorenbos from making it to third place in the finals of America’s Got Talent with his patented brand of magic. He’s also a professional football player who was recently traded to the New Orleans Saints, which is a good thing because they discovered a heart issue that has to be immediately addressed.

Jon was a crowd favorite back when he was on AGT. The judges loved him too. He got into the final three on the finals before he was sent home and Grace Vanderwaal eventually won. But Jon has not been idle. He plays in the NFL, which is no easy task. He was traded to the Saints and when they did his physical they found the heart issue. It’s called an aortic aneurysm and has to be operated on immediately. It’s hard to say if this is the end of his career as a football player. At least he has a career as a magician to fall back on.


Open heart surgery is no fun but at least they caught it in time. A lot of times those types of conditions go undetected until i’s too late. Even though he may have to give up his career, his health is what’s more important.
