#9 – Wendy Clackum & Jonathan Marchniak


Wendy Clackum grew up in Cleveland, GA where she attended High School and remained a resident until October, 2016.   At that time, she purchased a home in Clermont, GA with her 2 children. Wendy works for Absolute Climate Control in Clermont, GA where she is the office manager.   She has worked there for 2 years and absolutely loves her job. She also loves being a mom & chasing 2 kids around, but when she can get a break from that, she really enjoys being outside. She has a passion for hiking, camping and being on the water.  Wendy wants everyone to know that she is in love with her savior, Jesus Christ, spending as much time as possible with Him and worshiping at Northside Church in Hall County.

Just a tidbit, Wendy haves a true addiction to coffee and could drink it all day.  Wendy is honored to be a part of Dancing with North Georgia Stars and excited to be able to raise money for Enotah CASA, Inc.


Jonathan Marciniak has a passion for performing and enjoys singing, dancing and acting. He has been in more than 15 productions in the past five years. He recently became an “honorary Disney Cast Member” when he and his community theatre group, Play on Players, won the National Performing Arts Festival and had the honor of performing “James and the Giant Peach” on a Disney stage.

Two of Jonathan’s favorite roles were John Brooke (“Little Women, the Musical”) and Papa Ge (“Once on This Island”). Jonathan is also ranked as a top 10th Male Vocalist in the nation. And he enjoys being an aerialist (trapeze/silks). Jonathan is excited about dancing with his North Georgia Stars partner Wendy Clackum and is anxious to show the audience their “Latino flair”. He wants to thank “Miss Neva” for the opportunity to be in this unique dance competition.
