About The Keynote Speaker
J.R. Martinez is an actor, motivational speaker, army veteran, author and Season 13 winner of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. In 2003, Martinez sustained severe burns to over 34% of his body while serving as an Army infantryman in Iraq. While J.R.’s experience was certainly life-changing, amazingly he claims this is actually a change for the better. From 2008 - 2011, he played the role of Brot Monroe on the Emmy Award winning daytime drama All My Children after a friend persuaded him to go to an open casting call.
