LAS VEGAS — A dealmaker who helped bring Donald Trump to Sin City and attempted to install Michael Jackson as the headline act at a themed casino has died at his Las Vegas-area home.
Jack Wishna was found Tuesday at his Henderson home, Clark County Coroner Mike Murphy said.
The circumstances surrounding the 54-year-old’s death were unknown. Foul play wasn’t suspected, police spokesman Keith Paul said.
The well-known wheeler and dealer will be remembered for orchestrating a multimillion-dollar agreement between performer Wayne Newton and the Stardust casino, said Dan Wilinsky, a spokesman for Wishna’s latest project.
