Stew Jamesson has been in Chicago for 5 years and loved every minute of the adventure. Yes, even those arctic days in January he thought he was living out scenes from Day After Tomorrow. The days before Chicago he performed professionally for the Walt Disney World Company in Orlando Florida. During the day he teaches U.S. History to teenagers at a local Chicago High School. With his wide variety of interest and background you are sure to get an entertaining night.
