Magician Scott Alexander got his start in the world of magic at the age of 6 when he received his first magic book for this birthday. He performed as a professional magician for the first time at the age of 12, and eventually he was able to perform on “America’s Got Talent” before eventually living his dream of headlining a show in Las Vegas.

Most recently, Alexander was performing magic on a cruise ship. Unfortunately, he never made it home. On Monday February 6, 2023, Alexander’s wife, Jenny Alexander, posted the sad news on Instagram that her husband had a stroke while on the cruise and died. He was only 52 years old.

Alongside pictures of Alexander with his family, Alexander’s wife, wrote, “I lost my husband yesterday. My kids lost their father. He suffered a stroke while working on a cruise ship in St Kitts and did not make it home to us. We are shattered. Please hold us in your prayers.”

The organizer of the GoFundMe, Ashley DeStephano, described Alexander as “a good man, a loving Husband, a caring Father. A Family man. The Dad who helped with homecoming parade floats, science projects, Halloween costumes, his kids’ talent show school performances.” DeStephano described Alexander’s wife and children as “devastated” at the news of his death. She wrote, “They are struggling to process how this could be real.”

According to Alexander’s online biography, besides being on season six of “America’s Got Talent,” he was also once a guest on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and he headlined a show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas for more than 7 years which included over 4,000 performances.
