Jon Lee

After a successful career which included Broadway and off Broadway roles (Auntie Mame, Rogers and Hammerstein's Flower Drum Song, Tennessee Williams In The Bar of a Tokyo Hotel) and stints on several soap operas including a year on the Edge of Night, Jon began a thirty year run as one of the most prolific spokesperson in the history of radio and TV commercials.

He was heard on over 50,000 commercials both here and around the world (Pizza Hut, Chrysler, AT&T, and many more), winning accolades with Clios and Mobius Awards. He had critically acclaimed lead appearances in the Off-Broadway productions of Arthur and Leila and Dog and His Master. But to many viewers of cable TV he can be remembered as the voice of the Swamp Thing, debuting in 1990 and running for three seasons.

A native New Yorker, who attended St. John's College and NYU, Jon lived in Fairfield County, Connecticut and is survived by two grown sons and their families, including a grandson he doted on whenever possible. He will be forever remembered for his generosity, quick wit, and ability to tell a story (or two).
