Terry Jastrow, Scientology celebrity

Current lifetime: Born September 24, 1948 in Denver

Joined Scientology: In 1977
Fun Scientology completion: OT 3, 1998

Terry shattering suppression: “My wife and I use Scientology to create a wonderful marriage. In fact, I’m sure there’s not a day that I don’t apply what I’ve learned in Scientology dozens (and probably hundreds) of times in a variety of ways…Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard was a great man. We should all be thankful for the insights and knowledge he made available for all people.”

Jastrow is one of those celebrities whose involvement in Scientology rarely gets mentioned, even though he’s very dedicated to the church. A producer of Super Bowl and Olympics coverage, Jastrow is a major entertainment industry figure.

Says our Celebrity Centre source: “Terry has supported the Church more quietly than his wife Anne. He is part of the older celebrity crowd at Celebrity Centre. He produced and directed his first non-documentary feature film in 2015 called The Squeeze centered around golf. He hired quite a few Scientologists for the cast and crew. He and Anne used to be good friends with Paul Haggis. They, like so many other live in the bubble specifically created by Celebrity Centre. Doubtful they will ever see the truth.”
