Jax Taylor talks to students

On October 6th, Eisenhower HS had the privilege of welcoming back 1998 graduate, Jason Cauchi, stage name: Jax Taylor. 

Now a current Hollywood resident and well known TV show personality from Law & Order, Dexter, Gossip Girl, Vanderpump Rules, and most recently his new series Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky, returned to speak to the film students to discuss his travels and ventures of becoming one of the most sought after reality stars.

 

Eisenhower film teacher, Mrs. Braun, invited JAX to participate in an actor's forum as he has done at well known universities such as UCLA, Stanford, and NYU.  

Film students, John Chown and Logan Poe, began the formal interviews and then opened it up to the audience for Q & A.  He generously allowed students photo opportunities at the end of the session and shared that his charity of choice is the Breast Cancer Foundation.

 

The students quickly learned about how difficult is was starting out, rooming with Channing Tatum in New York, working many part time jobs both waiting to get discovered.  

He gave us advice, "it's not what well-known school you go to, but the experiences you have that gets you hired".  JAX proved to be charming, funny, down to earth, and very generous with his time.  We learned that he is not at all the "BAD BOY" that he is perceived to be on TV and gave the student's much insight into behind the scenes.
