Jon Harcharek

Copywriter, Radio & TV

Jon has died for his clients. Clung to a moving bus. And even dodged speeding cars outside the Lincoln Tunnel. In fact, whatever it takes to get an idea across, he’s ready. Including playing a corpse in a Marine Corps video, posing on a 20-foot bus poster for NJ Lottery, or insisting on the perfect shot for a NY Waterway TV commercial.

Trained in NYC at Grey and J. Walter Thompson, Jon has worked as a writer, creative director, producer (and stunt double) for such diverse clients as Pepsi, Dunkin Donuts, MasterCard, AT&T, IBM, NJ Tourism and Merck, among others. He brings a broad background in TV, radio and video production, earning top creative honors and more importantly, the confidence of clients who expect more. His experience also includes branding, BRCs, and leading brainstorm sessions.

Jon has taught or guest lectured on advertising and marketing strategy at Princeton, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Rowan and The New School. His writing and artwork has appeared in the NY Times, Newsweek, Bon Appetit, and on the labels of your favorite Saranac Beer bottles.
