John Bryant (Jack) Handy (? - February 26, 1949) was very active in the magic community. He was founder and president of the Hill City Magicos in Lynchburg, Virginia and served as president for the Tri-State Magician's Ass'n.

Handy bred miniature rabbits with his wife Ginnie at their estate, "Nolanus", in Lynchburg, Virginia. The house contained a magic theater, "The Whoop n'Holler Oprey House" (described in the October, 1943 issue of Linking Ring) and Handy's collection of historical magic.
