Lunch with J.R. Martinez
Dancing with the Stars Champion, Best Selling Author, Wounded U.S. Army Veteran
Come join us and listen to J. R. Martinez share his story of resilience and optimism with his trademark blend of humor and heart. An Iraq War veteran, J.R. suffered severe burns over 30 percent of his body as a result of a road side bomb. After years of recovery he answered an open call for military veterans for a guest role on Lifetime’s “Army Wives.” Landing the role, his acting career was born. He became a cast member on “All My Children” and went on to win season 13 of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” He currently stars in a nationally syndicated series “SAF3”. In 2012 J.R.’s memoir, “Full of Heart: My Story of Survival, Strength, and Spirit,” was published and became a New York Times best seller. J.R. continues to be active in many veteran support organizations and inspire others through his speaking engagements.
