JC Chanowsky


JC Chanowsky sees more than pretty, bright bulbs when he looks at holiday lighting displays. He sees family and memories. He feels warmth, comfort, and joy. Holiday lights transport him to childhood when his parents drove him around different neighborhoods after Thanksgiving dinner to look at beautiful homes illuminated by Christmas lights. 

As an adult, JC created similar memories for his family. Rather than drive his family to look at other homes, he chose to make his own a display worth gawking at. In fact, he was known as “Clark Griswold” because of the numerous luminous lights dangling from his house. 

Having experienced the fulfillment of illuminating his family’s holidays, JC chose to expand his passion to other families by starting Patriot Illumination. For the past six years, Patriot Illumination has created unforgettable holiday lighting displays (and memories).

I highly recommend Patriot Illumination!! We recently got our Christmas lights installed and they did an outstanding job. Cape Fear Pro Wash designed and installed our lights at a reasonable, affordable price. The team did a great job. We couldn’t be happier. Planning on using them every year!!
