On November 2nd at 6:30pm at the Victory Theatre, J.R. will be discussing his story of courage and hope. In
March of 2003, Martinez was deployed to Iraq. In April he sustained severe burns to over 34 percent of his
body when his humvee hit a roadside bomb. Since his recovery, Martinez has become a highly sought after
motivational speaker. He has traveled around the country speaking about his experiences to corporations,
veterans groups, schools and other organizations. Martinez began his acting career on the Emmy Award
winning daytime drama All My Children. Since then he’s appeared on numerous television shows. Many
remember him best as the Season 13 champion on Dancing with the Stars. He is the author of the New York
Times bestseller “Full of Heart: My Story of Survival, Strength, and Spirit”. Martinez serves as a spokesperson
for Operation Finally Home, as well as for the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, Glasswing International,
