Dr. Jo-An Anderson Fox: Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Talent Manager, Marketing Director and Television Development Executive, Dies at 68

Dr. Fox, the Nashville-based talent and marketing guru – whose talent list included such names as Bobby Vinton, Perry Como, Jerry Vale, Engelbert Humperdink, Marty Raybon and Johnny Mathis – and whose long career stretched from Connecticut and Broadway to Nashville – died of heart failure in her home on Monday, as reported by her daughter, Jill Anderson McIntosh of Chicago, Illinois.

A passionate and devoted friend and advocate for her clients, Jo-An was highly regarded as someone who could not only market a challenging product – but also fill seats in theaters.

Born Jo-An Burns in Schenectady, New York to Joseph and Ann Burns, she attended Niskayuna High School before earning her B.A., degree in Theatre at SUNY Plattsburgh. She went on to earn a Masters in Theatre Management at SUNY Albany shortly before moving to Connecticut in 1977.

For several years, Jo-An served as a marketing executive at the Oakdale Musical Theatre before forming The Anderson Group in 1985. In 1998, she relocated to Nashville, Tennessee where she became VP of A&R, Marketing and Artist Development at Grand Vista Music. In recent years she devoted her time to scouting and developing young talent under the umbrella of her company, Blue Velvet Music Group. She also joined the television development team for the Los Angeles-based production company, Prometheus Entertainment.

In addition to her extensive marketing and management career, Mrs. Fox was also a highly qualified and accomplished family therapist and life coach, having earned a PhD from Southern Connecticut State University in 1996.

Mrs. Fox is survived by her husband, Kim Fox (of Nashville, TN), her daughter, Jill Anderson McIntosh, her son-in-law, Tim McIntosh, her grandson, Toby McIntosh (of Chicago, IL) and her brother, Kevin Burns (of Beverly Hills, CA).

A celebration of Jo-An's life will take place on November 2, at Sinema Restaurant from 5pm-9pm (8th Avenue South Suite 102, Nashville, TN). Anyone is welcome to come by to pay their respects.
