Raised in Fort Washington, Maryland, Jonathan C. Harris is no stranger to leadership, hard work, or success. At the age of ten years old, he earned the right to be a guest weatherman for a day on Fox 5 DC News. He has already received over 100 honors and awards including Forty Under 40 for Prince George’s County, MD, TEDx Talk speaker, TEDxFortWashington Founder/Director, American College Personnel Association (ACPA) Outstanding Men’s Program, high school Valedictorian and the Kiwanis Club Citizenship Award. One rainy day and a flat tire later, Jonathan’s life would change forever when car troubles inspired him to write a book. In March 2016, Jonathan’s published his debut book, “Master of Ceremonies: A Male’s Guide for a Successful Life." In February 2020, he became the owner of Jharris Publishing, LLC to help more aspiring authors feel comfortable telling their stories.
In addition to being an author, Jonathan serves as a motivational speaker, life/career coach, and blogger. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, investing in the stock market, spending time with family and friends, mentoring the youth, volunteering in the community, video games, and watching movies. He is the founder of the movement, #GiveAuthorsAChance, which encourages kids to read more, be exposed to more authors, and for more media outlets to recognize and support authors.
