Meet Charlton’s Jesse John Francis Clark: Career Scam Artist Photographer Who Mocked Grieving Client On What Would’ve Been Wedding Date After Refusing To Refund Money When Fiance Died, Makes Up Suicide Story For Pity And Much More


This is Jesse John Francis Clark, originally from Charlton.

In 2013 he was ordered by the Massachusetts AG’s office to repay $500K to clients he had ripped off with his photography business at the Millbury Mall.

The owner of SureShot Portraits, which authorities said ripped off more than 150 couples by charging them for wedding videos that were never provided, was ordered to pay more than $500,000, the state Attorney General’s office said. Jesse Clark of Charlton, who operated SureShot, was ordered to pay more than $136,000 in restitution and $370,000 in civil penalties and fees. He was also forbidden from being engaged in such work in Massachusetts. SureShot had a storefront operation in Shoppes at Blackstone Valley in Millbury.

Complaints began piling up against SureShot, which collected deposits or full payment from the couples but never delivered the videos. Some video footage was obtained by investigators and provided to some of the victims. Clark collected $800 to $2,000 for each video order, Coakley’s office said. Clark also operated the business under the names SureShot Videography, In Focus Studios, Magnolia Films, Wedding Filmology, and Wedding Avenue, and used the aliases John Francis, Jaie Hart, and Michael Collins.

The Turtlegram and Gazette wrote about it, which prompted a fight with his parents and his estranged wife who had a restraining order out against him at the time, and he got 60 days in jail and a mental health evaluation from our old friend Judge Tim Bibaud after he smashed in his mother’s SUV. Since then we haven’t heard much from him.

Now fast forward seven years later. This is Justin Montney, a former cross country runner from Kansas who resettled in Colorado Springs.

He was supposed to get married to his fiance Alexis-Athena Wyatt this week, but she died in a car accident in February.

He attempted to get a refund for his deposit of $1,800 from the wedding videographer Copper Stallion Media, a Dallas based company that claimed to do weddings all over the country. Their website looks legit and it’s filled with testimonials from people they claim are clients.

But Justin didn’t get the refund so he left a bad review for Copper Stallion on Tie The Knot, which led to a threat of deformation lawsuit from Copper Stallion Media, not only against Justin but other people who left bad reviews for them in support of Justin.

The local media in Colorado did a story on it.

And Copper Stallion responded by posting this on their website.

They ended up taking that post down but you can see it in the archives hereIn it they announced that Copper Stallion bought the domain

And to add a sinister twist they took this photograph of Justin:

And photoshopped it to make him look a douchier Brock Turner.

Upon closer examination it appears that Copper Stallion Media’s testimonials, videos, and pictures are all fake. They get them from Adobe stock photos.

Then they posted this on their business Facebook page.

That’s one way to do business I suppose.

The mother of the deceased fiance also left a bad review on their Google page, and the company responded by telling her that “you cannot get your money back, even from the grave.”

At this point it was shared far and wide on social media and the company looked AWFUL. So in order to garner sympathy from people and make the victim look like the bad guy Copper Stallion did what all ratchets do when they’re backed into a corner – blamed the whistle blower for causing a suicide.

Except there’s just one problem – there is no Allison Davis, nor are there any employees from Copper Stallion Media. The post was originally made by Copper Stallion in 2018.

And then updated.

After Copper Stallion started getting flooded with bad Yelp Reviews they renamed their Yelp page Justin Montney and left this review.

Copper Stallion Media also has a bad habit of not paying their contractors.

Apparently Copper Stallion puts ads that they need videographers on Craig’s List and fails to pay them. Local media in Colorado did some more digging about this company and guess who owns it?

Jesse Jonn Francis Clark.

Although he quickly denied it.

He’s created LLC’s in Colorado, Nevada, and California, but swears it’s another guy.

But wait, it gets crazier.

Jesse Clark also pretends to be a wealthy world traveling brand called Jetset Jesse that stays in luxury hotels and rates them on his website.

He has social media pages including Facebook and YouTube that feature videos depicting glamorous, wealthy people doing glamorous, wealthy people things, but puts his Jetset Jesse logo on everything.

I have no idea if he actually goes to the places he reviews on his website. For instance, this hotel in Newport Beach, CA is $800 a night.

Who is “we?” Apparently this chick.

At first glance that appears to be a mannequin, but here she is eating breakfast with him too.


He might actually stay at these hotels using money he gets from couples he’s ripped off with his various LLC’s.

The website says that he is the President of HemoAware Corporation, which he pretends is a non-profit that he occasionally tends to when he’s not busy being a “busy entrepreneur.”

In this video he tells a story from 2013, the same year he was sentenced to jail in Dudley, and he made up a whole story about traveling to Fort Lauderdale and contacting his parents by telling them, “wish you were here,” despite destroying his mother’s SUV that same year. He talks about how he gets stretch limousines and gets free champagne, which of course is all a lie.

On his Twitter account he is also promoting his online store on Tee Spring.

The store exclusively sells Jesse John Francis Clark gear, including this poster of himself which costs $21.

According to the Tee Spring site he is an “executive, professional, entrepreneur, with marketing savvy, digital expertise and advance knowledge of AI.” It also says that he is currently the CEO of Flash House Media, which is listed at 70 Winter Street in Worcester.

Then there’s his website It claims that he went to Harvard, MIT, Yale, and the Massachusetts School of Law.

According to the website you can “book” him to come speak for you.

He actually has two videos on there that he claims are him speaking at UNLV and
Nevada State College.

But who knows if that’s just another video that he added himself into.

His website connects you to his Medium page, where he is somehow a published author. He’s written articles about how to crush the “haters” by working 80 hour weeks and eating steak at The Capital Grille.

He published another blog about a real estate investing company he claims to own called Brendan Capital Group.

That links to this website which is likely another WIX site he created. Then there was this blog about his glory days as a drummer, in which he shared a video of a song that is almost definitely not him playing the drums.

He also published a blog about his previous career as a paralegal.

10 years ago today I was let go from my full-time job in Boston. I was a Foreclosure Paralegal where I would prepare Acceleration Letters, Complaints and Notice of Sales. I was the guy who would evict you from your house after you wouldn’t be able to pay your mortgage during the subprime mortgage crisis. I did this during the day while attending law school at night. This would be the last time I ever worked for someone else. I have been on my own for a decade now.

Small towns like Dudley don’t have their own police academies and instead go to regional police academies, so that seems doubtful.

During his “paralegal” career in 2010 the aspiring model apparently harassed Auburn Attorney Rosaleen Clayton, told her that women shouldn’t be admitted to the bar. She shared his emails on a Lawyer’s Weekly forum, and even though she redacted his name he responded by shitting on her on a Craigslist ad she put up. When a guy named Noah Shaffer wrote about it Jesse Clark renamed his modeling page “Noah Shaffer” and said that Noah was available for noodz. He then announced he would no longer pursue becoming an attorney in Massachusetts.

And did I mention he abandoned his two children? He is the worst person on earth, and probably the most prolific scam artist we’ve ever covered. Our homegrown douchebag has become a national disgrace, and I have no doubt that he’s already plotting his next scam.

    For someone who claims to own a media marketing company, his websites are absolute garbage. He also tried to claim he had no affiliation with Copper Stallion Media, but was it’s registered owner and the sites all have literally the exact same crap design and setup. Let’s just hope he gets put away this time so he can’t continue to pull this nonsense and rip off any more people.

    I feel like there hasn’t been any large scale controversial ratchets featured here in the last few months.. I’m talking Josh Abrams, Hadassah, and that phony combat medic (I forgot his name.)
    Anyway, that said, I think this cocksucker fits the criteria for some extensive Turtleboy exposure. Fuck this twat..

    I worked at the foreclosure law firm that Jesse Clark was fired from many years ago. He had threatened one of the female attorneys via email that he was going to kill her and had a complete, mental breakdown and had to be escorted out of the building. The firm, which had two offices at the time, both had to go on lockdown for a couple of days for fear of retaliation against the attorney he threatened. This guy is a powder keg just ready to explode.

    He gives me the “Don’t Fuck with Cats” murderer vibes and I just got chills that I ever had to hear about him again!!

    Justins Fiancé got killed in an MVA and this psycho used car salesman doesn’t have the decency to give back the deposit money. Jesse John Francis Clark, or whatever the fuck this serial killer look-alike calls himself, is one straight up sociopath. Extreme narcissism and bad intent will catch up to this POS soon enough, he thinks he’s one step ahead but he really has one foot in the grave.

  • Harry Bowles
    May 27, 2020 at 3:24 pm

    If he tried stealing my money and refused to give it back he’d have a tripod sticking out of his rear end that same day. Great example of why you should always pay with a credit card and never cash or check.

    Content for days with this guy. No wonder you haven’t blogged much the past 24 hrs

    This guy’s so high functioning, yet so devoid of the ability to see the repercussions of his actions, he’s probably lost track of his vast amount of “skill sets” by this point

    He’d have to be about 160 years old to acquire all the abilities he wants people to believe he has. Good Lord
