About Us (Mary Lynn and Jesse)
Meet *Mary Lynn*
Meet Mary Lynn -
* Mary Lynn * is a native of Eastern Tennessee. For the
past twenty - five years she has combines animal care and showmanship with her
unique presentations. You
never know when you may
see her and the monkeys driving down t he road or see them on TV or hear about them on the radio. She has had many opportunities throughout the years to visit with thousands of people since her theme is to educate everyone about Monkey and Apes through an entertaining type of presentation. *Mary Lynn* has traveled all over the southeast touching the hearts of many with the monkeys from SunShine MonkeyShines.
A Personal Note From
Mary Lynn - 2016 began our 27th year
of Educating and Entertaining with our wonderful monkeys. I am
honored to share them in such a positive unique way. Captive primates are a
gift to us all. I have always been glad that we have been able to open our
home to so many different monkeys during the last years. It is always stressed at every event that
“Monkeys and Apes" are simply not good pets.
I would like to say thanks to all of you who have patronized our business for all of these years (send photos) and thanks in advance to all of you new people who will be seeing us for the first time, in the days, months, and years to come.
I have always loved how I share the monkeys of SunShine MonkeyShines. They are very special “Monkeys on a Mission,” who always bring lots of love, joy, and happiness wherever they go.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us here.Please continue to remember us in your thoughts and prayers as monkeys come in and
out of our lives. Love, from Mary Lynn (Mary's Shows)
Meet Jesse Moore -
*Jesse* is from the Cleveland,
Ohio area and is one of the youngest educators and
entertainers of monkeys in country. He started studying
and gathering information
about primates,when he was
growing up in Ohio. He like "Mary Lynn" has always known his life would be different from most, due to his early life experiences.
He has not only spent his life learning about monkeys and apes but he also grew up as a Amateur Motocross Racer. He quickly found that he had a real talent for the sport and soon started excelling and is still finding time to work as a Professional Motocross and Supercross Racer.
Because of the traveling in his racing business, he has been able to also build a wonderful network of fellow animal trainers, educators and entertainers to study and learn from for the past seven years. He has not only worked with other people that have trained and lived with monkeys for their lifetimes, but he has also been well versed with learning the special techniques of being able to train other larger types of animals such as bears, lions, and tigers.
Monkeys have always been *Jesse's* first love and he was able to become a monkey owner of his own monkey by the age of thirteen.
Currently he is balancing both businesses very well and enjoying showing his wonderful troop of star-performing "monkey companions" in his very own SunShine MonkeyShines presentations. He will not only be doing the different types of presentations listed on our web site here, but he will also be doing monkey wrangling for spots on TV and movie sets with his very special monkeys, who are smart and extremely talented.
*A Personal Note From *Jesse* - Hi everyone. I am very excited about being the youngest primate handler, entertainer and educator, working in the special events, TV/Video,Print, and Movie Production business. I feel very blessed and lucky for the life I get to live.
of my two professions, I can truly say there is not anyone else out
there that can say they are a Professional Supercross Racer and a
primate trainer. As I write this down it sounds very bazaar, doesn't
I feel that because of the large crowds that I have been around in the racing business my monkeys have received a very special,one of a kind, type of training. So now, when we are around more intimate groups of people, they are very comfortable and know that it is show time and that means "Monkey Play Time" for them. They know that it is time to show off some of the special things they love to do.
I am especially happy knowing that wherever we go there will be many of your friends and family members who will walk away with wonderful memories that we have helped them make. I love what I do and I know you will see that it is true in the shows. I can help you create life long memories with our presentation at your special event.
Thanks from Jesse
