Though not a magician in the traditional sense, Jesse Lasky did have ties to the magic world. He performed for a time in Leon Herrmann's show as part of a Quick Change Act and also played the clarinet. Later he managed Herrmann. Then in 1918 and 1919 he produced two of Houdini's movies, The Grim Game and Terror Island.
Lasky though is best known as one of the founders of Paramount Pictures. He was one of the early Movie Moguls.
He is interred in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, Hollywood Los Angeles County California, USA
