Celebrities who are (or were) JWs – Part 5

As our readership continues to expand, one trend is very apparent: Everyone seems to be interested in celebrities and other famous individuals who might be Jehovah’s Witnesses.

As the editor of Ex-JW.com, I receive three or four emails per day requesting more articles about JWs who may have reached some level of fame during their lives. I’ve also received a few suggestions that I might follow up as I have more time, while others (such as the one about Pee-wee Herman’s recent conversion, or that serial killer Ted Bundy studied with the JWs while in a Florida prison) will be written off as simple Internet graffiti. In any case, I’m pleased to see that so many of our readers continue to enjoy these articles about famous and infamous people who have made more than passing contact with our favorite religion.

This group of names includes a couple of entertainers, a pair of athletes, and the wife of one major politician who may have affected the course of world history. If you have any suggestions for other celebrity JWs, please let me know by sending a email to Contact@Ex-JW.com.

  • Dave Meyers (athlete)
  • Selena Quintanilla (singer)
