JR Martinez

Omaha Home for Boys is honored to welcome Jose Rene “J.R.” Martinez, an American actor, author, motivational speaker, and retired U.S. Army soldier, to our 2018 Imagine Our Youth Fundraising Celebration!

In March of 2003, Martinez was deployed to Iraq. Shortly thereafter in April he suffered a devastating injury when his Humvee hit a roadside bomb and he sustained severe burns to over 34 percent of his body.

After a grueling recovery that tested Martinez’s determination like never before, he became an actor, author and highly sought-after motivational speaker.

Martinez began his acting career on the Emmy Award winning daytime drama All My Children starring as injured veteran Brot Monroe. Since then he’s appeared on numerous television shows, including Dancing with the Stars where he won season 13 with his dance partner Karina Smirnoff.

Martinez is the author of the New York Times bestseller Full of Heart: My Story of Survival, Strength, and Spirit. He also serves as a spokesperson for Operation Finally Home, as well as for the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, and Glasswing International.

Martinez travels the country speaking about his experiences and will bring his message of resilience and hope to the 2018 Imagine Our Youth Fundraising Celebration.
