Veteran major media executive sharing remarkable redemption story

MILLEDGEVILLE — A great fall and the subsequent rise through religious and personal discovery creates one heck of a narrative.

Joe Kissack, a speaker, author, screenwriter, film and television producer, publisher and entrepreneur, will share a remarkably relatable story at Magnolia Ballroom at 7 p.m. March 5 for CURE GC Worship Night.

CURE International’s non-profit mission operates hospitals and programs in 29 countries worldwide where patients experience the life-changing message of God’s love for them, receiving surgical treatment regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, or ability to pay.

Kissack said he feels honored for the opportunity to help the kids.

“None of us have this smooth sailing for our entire lives,” he said. “We are all lost at something sometime. I love to leverage that and connect for the benefit of another organization.”

He is a frequent guest on local and national broadcasts and has made appearances from coast to coast on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and many more. 

Kissack has founded an entertainment company, partnered in the publishing world with an award-winning storytelling company, overseen a multi-media company, managed domestic sales and marketing efforts of dozens of nationally syndicated television shows and feature films, including the multi-billion dollar assets of “Seinfeld” and thousands of motion pictures.

In 2012, Kissack completed ‘The Fourth Fisherman: How Three Mexican Fishermen Came Back From The Dead Changed My Life And Saved My Marriage.’ In the book released by Random House, Kissack details how his life miraculously intersects with three fishermen who were rescued after being adrift at sea for more than nine months. 

The Tres Pescadores drifted 5,500 miles across the Pacific Ocean, surviving on raw fish, rainwater and their faith in God. 

Kissack’s journey began during a Midwest upbringing under a tough father.

He was emotionally wounded, conditioned on a performance equals love mentality.
