ORLAND PARK, IL. (ECWd) –
UPDATE at the bottom of page: Employment Info… Chris McFadden, employed at Jellyvision…
It appears that the Orland Park Public Library employees are extracting payback for getting slammed and embarrassed at their meeting a couple days ago. During that meeting, an attorney thoroughly chastised the board for their past actions, an attorney intern continued, and the Edgar County Watchdogs who also spoke to the board – even read what Dan Kleinman was forbidden by the OPPL board to read.
What happened today, is over the top. An employee of the OPPL by the name of Joy McFadden that is raking in over $100,000.00 per year, apparently had her husband, or is herself using her husband’s Facebook account, incited and encouraged other individuals from a group called “f*ck Alex Jones” to continue their coordinated attacks on Megan Fox, a person that spoke against the library’s policy on unfiltered internet access that allows child porn into the library.
Read what Megan had to say about it:
BOOM! Proof that the Orland Park Public Library is involved in the attacks on me today using trolls. You’ve seen the trolls coming over here at the invitation of the “F*ck Alex Jones” group leader. Well, I happened to notice that in one of the posts over there a man named “CH Ryan” was thanking “F*ck Alex Jones” for attacking me today. Curious, I clicked on his name and it took me to his Facebook page. Do you know who “CH Ryan” is? It’s Joy McFadden’s husband! Here are the screen grabs to prove it too. Joy McFadden is the Library’s “technology guru” and the one who runs the video cameras during the meetings…and here I have proof her husband goes online and encourages people to attack me. Something tells me that Joy is going to have to sit for a deposition about this in the future. She’s a public employee and she’s having her husband go online and encourage people to attack me. Feels like another civil rights violation to add to the growing pile. And it’s so ironic too because Joy is supposed to be the “technology guru”, but here she is embarrassing herself by having her husband get so easily caught attacking me.
Here are the screen grabs from the time that Joy McFadden’s husband (a video game industry worker named “CH Ryan”) attacked me on Facebook on 6/20/14. He was one of the guys egging people on at the page “F*ck Alex Jones” to come to my page and attack me. Joy McFadden is the “technology guru” at the Orland Park Public Library and is a public employee earning about $100,000/year. It’s clear that she had her husband go online and encourage people to attack me as an intimidation tactic, as I am currently involved as a witness in civil rights and other matters pending against the Library. I believe that Joy McFadden very well could have been operating under orders from the Library Board when she had her husband attack me in this way…possibly to intimidate me as a witness against the Library Board. Pretty terrible behavior from a public employee if you ask me.
The photos and screenshots of the lively exchange can be found HERE – but be warned, it is not “information” meant for children.
Mid-Way Games (this is either a former employee or in addition to Jellyvision)
Mr. CH Ryan has blocked most everything in the screenshots from his Facebook page now that he has been outed. His Facebook page says he works for “Midway Games”, and their company website from their LinkedIn page goes directly to Warner Bros’ Lego Movie Video game. We will do what we can to get the word to them about how their employees are acting – I’d bet they will be very proud of him…there is also some contact information on IGN.com that appears to be dated, but it lists the same website that goes to Warner Bros. A guy by the name of Scot Bayless is listed as their VP. A little history on THIS SITE states that Warner Bros did purchase most of the company for $33 million in 2009 after they filed for bankruptcy. The only other Mid-Way Games is a toy store, and I doubt if he works at a toy store as a game designer.

UPDATE: CH Ryan works at Jellyvision (maybe in addition to Midway but Jelly is his primary job)
That husband of hers also says he works for something called “Jellyvision”. That’s missing from the original article. This is his current job, not Midway Games. He deleted the “Jellyvision” from his “About” page in a hurry. He does not want people to know about “Jellyvision”.

Everyone at Jellyvision shares a commitment to excellence and a desire to work in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere.
ARE THERE ANY PERKS? Yes, we love perks.
Competitive pay, stock options and benefits. 401(k) with matching. And we pay 100% of the cost of premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for our employees (as long as you don’t use tobacco – if you do, you’re going to have to kick in some for the medical premiums). We also cover a really nice chunk of the cost of premiums for spouse/partner/dependent medical, dental and vision insurance.
Casual dress and a flexible schedule. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we’re a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes a nice way to spend the day.
Free food. Every week, we stock our kitchen with free healthy snack foods, and we have a “hot lunch” catered once a week to give people a reason to hang out and eat together.
Easy transportation. We’re really close to the “L” and the Halsted (#8) bus (right by the Apple Store and Mega Whole Foods too), and we have a transit FSA that allows you to dedicate pre-tax dollars to public transportation expenses. And a number of our employees like to bike to work, so we also have showers and lockers in the office.
Did we mention our yoga class? We bring a pro instructor right to the office. Fully subsidized by Jellyvision and fully optional, btw.
Oh! And we have a massage chair. Not just any massage chair, my friend. It’s the HumanTouch HT 5320 WholeBody™ Massage Chair. Feeling a little stiff? Sit down. Relax. Feel better? Good. Okay, back to work.
INTERESTED? Great, we look forward to reading your application – make sure it includes:
A cover letter that highlights three reasons you think you’d be great for the gig, focusing on how your past work experience has prepared you for this kind of position – or why you think you can rock the job even though you don’t have past work experience that’s perfectly aligned. Writing is key to all that we do, and we weigh cover letters heavily.
Your resume .
You will receive an auto-reply confirming that we’ve received your application.
If you decide to apply, please know that every complete application will be carefully reviewed. Seriously! We know it is a time commitment to prepare an application. And we respect that effort by thoughtfully reviewing every complete application and responding one way or the other. But that kind of thoughtful review means that it sometimes takes us awhile to get back to applicants, so please NO PHONE CALLS. The time we spend responding to phone calls and emails inquiring about where we are in the process is time that we could be spending actually moving the process along – so please be patient with us!
Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!
