James Fortner

Jouster and The Spanish Knight

James Fortner has been involved with Renaissance festivals since he was 15 and has been jousting for 20 years. He currently serves as the Spanish Knight with the Hanlon-Lees Action Theatre. As a teenager, his mother originally had a booth at Faire which lead to James’ present day passion alongside his career as a civil engineer for the Air Force in South Houston and welder fabricator.
