“A clear, powerful pianist with a magnetic personality…worth seeing any time”.
–WASHINGTON POST

“Jade comes to the mainstage extremely well-prepared. She sounded like she had been working with us for a very long time. She aligned with our messaging. A lot of speakers say they do that, but it’s often artificial. With Jade, it’s completely genuine.”
–Barb Orvis, Senior Meetings & Events Planner, Voya Financial™

“In over 35 years that I have been producing and directing all types of events, with scores of talented performers, Jade is one of the very best. Not just because she is incredibly talented, an amazing musician, an engaging speaker, but because she is just such a nice and beautiful person. She took time to treat people as if they were her friends. The talk backstage was…”she is the nicest person we have ever worked with… and she killed her performance.”
–Steve Whyte, University Event Manager/Certified Protocol Officer, University of the Pacific

“I must let you know how impressed, moved and astounded I was with your excellent and unique presentation recently at the Wynn Las Vegas. Being in the hospitality business, growing up playing piano in church and working around the world, as you can guess, I’ve seen and heard many presentations and performances.  I have to let you know that you are number 1 in my opinion. Keep doing the great work you are doing and many blessings on you, your family and your career. Thank you with an open and grateful heart.”
–Gwenna Brush, President, The Maxcel Co
