John Cassidy -
Medium, Paranormal Investigator
Co-founder of Bumps in the Night Paranormal Research
Co-founder of Little Traverse Bay Parafest
Growing up John would often see things or hear things he didn't understand and would pass it off as imagination. It wasn't until the late 90's when he really started thinking about it after his first "read" of a friend. It was much different than anything he has experienced before. This is when he began to research ghosts and spirit. He learned from his mother that John's Grandmother was very spiritual and was a Medium and Psychic.
Over the years he was able to begin to tune his ability and learned he could provide help for people and give them messages from the other side. John has also helped many with his Empathic abilities by being able to feel the emotions and feelings they feel and helped them move past situations that hold them back in life.
After seeing the new TV shows about ghost hunting which really peaked his interest in the paranormal. John and his wife Jackie, began to investigate buildings, businesses and cemeteries and then residences. Joined by their friend Teri Mantei they went on to form Bumps in the Night Paranormal Research. Over the years they have investigated many locations across the country from Vermont to New Mexico . Some of his favorites being Villisca Axe Murder House, Eloise Asylum and Poasttown Elementary School in Middletown Ohio. They have also investigated many homes and were able to help many.
In 2013 they were asked by the Terrace Inn in Bay View to offer a haunted weekend. Being fortunate enough to have met and become friends with many names in the field, they invited a few and Little Traverse Bay Parafest was formed. Little did he know that this would be life changing. He met many people who were able to help him understand his ability and help in what was previously a struggle. Two Mediums who were very beneficial in this were Scotty Rorek and Cassidy Rae. John uses his ability any chance he can to help others in their struggles and try to teach the lessons he has learned along the way.
John still resides in his home town of Petoskey Michigan where he works in Emergency Medicine and runs Bumps in the Night Paranormal Research with his wife Jackie.
