Jazz Jennings Receives New Artwork by LGBT Artist Jumper Maybach
Boca Raton, FL (February 22, 2018) – Celebrity Artist, LGBTQ Activist & Humanitarian Ben Workman aka Jumper Maybach has a new fan, transgender personality, Jazz Jennings. Jumper recently gifted Jennings a one-of-a-kind work of art titled “From Darkness to Light #5.” Jazz Jennings is an LGBTQ rights activist and television personality, notable for being one of the youngest publicly documented people to be identified as transgender, and for being the youngest person to become a national transgender figure.
“I am now officially Jumper’s #1 fan,” states Jennings. “Jumper is so talented and his story really touched my heart. I believe that we all have a destined calling. I love his motto! I’m certainly on the same page. I know I’m only a teenager, but it’s my mission to spread my message of acceptance, tolerance and unconditional love.”
Jennings received national attention in 2007 when an interview with Barbara Walters aired on 20/20, which led to other high-profile interviews and appearances. Jennings stars in the TLC reality TV series, I Am Jazz, which focuses on her life with her family as a teenager and as a transgender youth.
“Jazz Jennings is truly an inspiration and I am honored to call Jazz my new friend,” states Maybach. “Jazz has given transgender youth a voice and her courage continues to motivate me in the battle for LGBTQ equality.”
Throughout his flourishing artistic career, Jumper has taken the time to give back to multiple LGBT organizations including GLAAD, the Human Rights Campaign, Matthew Shepard Foundation, the Trevor Project and the Montrose Center, Houston’s LGBT community center.

About Jumper Maybach
Jumper Maybach was born in Corpus Christi, Texas in 1963. He knew something special had taken place when his grandfather applied a white face on him the first time. It was then, within an instant that Jumper was born.
However, it wasn’t until a religious experience during a painful time in Jumper’s life which enabled his vision to fully take shape. Ben believes it is a person’s traumas that define the individual. He releases his joys and pain into his artwork, and thus becomes the storyteller of the creation. Jumper’s techniques are self-taught through intense experimentation leading to an end result: unique and representative of the artist. It’s about understanding love, peace and the ultimate healthy transformation of an individual.
The art is a constant evolution of color and complete abandonment of the paint. It is an unplanned performance that creates the extraordinary works. The complexity within his art comes from within. Jumper is unashamed to teach the world a lesson in compassion. His art is a beacon for ending hate, bullying and intolerance in the world.
Not long after Jumper began his career as an artist, he started to receive national and international recognition for his work. In 2013, Ben Workman held his first gallery show, which ultimately led to exhibiting at Art Dubai. It was there that the Artist received a documentary film deal and was dubbed the Jackson Pollock of the 21st century.
Shortly after Art Dubai, Jumper had the opportunity to exhibit 39 large important pieces of work in Venice, Italy in his largest exhibition to date. He created and curated a Venice series specifically for the show which also included a screening of the trailer to his documentary “The Jumper Maybach Story”. Another momentous career moment occurred when Jumper was invited to exhibit his art at the Gallerie Du Louvre.
For 2018, the coming decade, and for as long as he actively can with his artistic voice, Jumper will pursue his mission of ending hate, bullying and intolerance through his extraordinary talent.
