Opening General Session: Life Is Magic With Jon Dorenbos

Jon Dorenbos suffered a devastating family tragedy in his childhood, but performing magic and playing pro football saved him, leading him to appearances on “America’s Got Talent” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, as well as playing 14 NFL seasons. After a life-threatening heart condition, he developed a road map for finding happiness. Life Is Magic is his story about overcoming life-or-death challenges with grace, persistence and a childlike sense of wonder.

The Construction Workforce Award winners—the Craft Instructor, Craft Professional and Young Professional of the Year—will also be honored during the opening session. In addition, attendees will be introduced to the 2023 Chair of the ABC National Board of Directors.
