The JoJoFun Team 

Jolène Emery – Director
Jolène is the director, founder and heart of JoJoFun. Not only does she direct JoJoFun, but she also brings a whole lotta fun to the children, entertaining in Toronto and at international events. A Canadian native, Jolène made the daring leap of emigrating to London, England in 2004. Within two years, she was well established as JoJo the Travelling Minstrel. Soon others would join in the fun, creating JoJo’s Travelling Minstrels – the funtabulous, internationally successful entertainment company now known as JoJoFun. In 2017, Jolène made another giant leap back to Canada – bringing JoJoFun to Toronto!

Here’s what our clients are saying…

"Jolene was very friendly and nice! She did an amazing job for a group of very demanding kids! Face painting was superb and spot on, all the kids loved the balloon animals and puppet show. We were very happy with the effort Jolene put into her work!!! Totally will recommend her to all our friends and family! Thanks again Jolene😃"

Asher M, Maple, ON

"Jojo came to my daughter's 5th bday party. She immediately was able to engage 26 children and kept them engaged with magic, songs, games and balloon animals for 2 hours. She is amazing. I can't recommend her enough."

Bilal B, Toronto

"These guys are AMAZING!! We had the face painter/balloon artist and Chase from Paw Patrol at my daughter's 4th birthday party and they were a HIT!!! The kids loved them! I loved them! Jojo was very professional and helpful when I was planning the party - she made everything really easy! On the day of the party, the team showed up early and were all set to go when the kids arrived. I highly, HIGHLY recommend them!! We can't wait to use them again next year! Thanks, Jojo and team!"

Mary G, Oakville, ON

"I took a chance on working with Jo Jo. We were not disappointed. My client told me Jo Jo was incredible and went beyond expectations. She had the children and even the adults engaged and up playing."

"We've used JoJoFun a couple of times in their carrot and eggplant costumes to help us excite kids (and colleagues) about good nutrition. They always get a great reaction!"

Andrea Elliott, Senior Manager Nutrition Programs, PC Children’s Charity

"We all thought you (JoJo) were very very good and we all enjoyed ourselves very much. The children all really liked you. We will definitely see you again next year. Thank you for all of your hard work planning the party games, decorations, party take home bags, activities and loot bags. Everything was superb."
