Jason Govekar business owner and DJ


Jason worked several years as an event DJ with a popular Chicagoland DJ company before breaking off on his own to start Celebration Midwest Entertainment. Having recently completed his Bachelor's in business administration, he took what he learned about wedding performance and collided it with what he learned about business and created a new level of service. While studying what other DJ companies were doing right and what some were doing wrong, he set his focus on making something that will not only make his clients happy, but also make their lives a little easier.

You won't hear Patti get behind the mic, but she supports Jason (her husband!) in all of the behind-the-scenes ways. Patti had dreams of being an author when she was little so she got her Bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in both Creative Writing and Literature. She got out of school and went into the Advertising field. After many years in Advertising she went back to school and got her Master's in Marketing. When you are looking at this website or social media, that's Patti! While she loves watching her husband excel in this business that he is passionate about, she is proud that he gets to be a part of so many couple's happy day.

The two of us...

It all began in Junior High, circa early 90s, when we went to school together. While we were never close friends in school, we were friends. Fast-forward through high school and the years beyond that to several years ago. While Jason was involved in raising money for the Make a Wish Foundation, he reached out to Patti for her creative skills in design. Patti created flyers for his events each year and that was the extent of their contact. Then 2014 happened and a simple meeting to discuss a project turned into Jason asking Patti on a date. In January of 2016, we were married and couldn't be happier! It's amazing how love can develop and we can't wait to be a part of your story.

Our first date was at Steven's Steakhouse in Gurnee on October 4th, 2014

Our reception was at Mickey Finn's Brewery in Libertyville

Our first dance song was "Never Stop" (Wedding Version) by SafetySuit

Our honeymoon was in Galena, IL...in January...it was cold
