J.R. Martinez Text Reviews

Your message about overcoming adversity in the toughest of times permeated their hearts and souls that day, and you changed many of their lives forever. I remember that day well as we packed the theatre with about 1100 people and not seeing a dry eye in the house. I'm so very proud of you and for what you continue to do. You are a class act...and I'm thankful our paths have crossed.

J.R. was a breath of fresh air to our campus. The students were left motivated, inspired and truly touched. After receiving a rousing standing ovation, J.R. was kind enough to take time out to speak to students individually. If you are looking for a speaker with the ability to motivate, captivate and invigorate your campus, look no further than J.R. Martinez.

What an incredible man! Please tell me that he touched so many people at LearningTECH/Quest School's event. I have had texts, calls, and face-to-face testimonials about the power of J. R.'s message. Our entire Quest School family and guests truly benefitted from his message and his sincere desire to communicate with people. He spent over three quality hours with our guests who were inspired and eager to let J.R. and your staff know that our wait was definitely worth it. Again thank you for your help. If you ever need a reference to promote J.R. as a person first and motivator second, please let us know.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU from our entire team! J.R. was truly incredible, and such a kind and fun person. Everyone has had nothing but amazing things to say about him and we're so honored to have had him.


Please pass along a huge THANK YOU again to J.R. - almost a week later and we are all still talking about how inspired we felt by the event! I think we had 23 questions submitted we didn't even get to which just shows how engaged the audience was. We were absolutely blown away and truly cannot thank you and J.R. enough for an incredible event!

J.R. Martinez is an outstanding advocate for service and change. We were honored to have him share his energy and optimism at our National Conference on Volunteering and Service. J.R.'s passion and enthusiasm captured the imagination of the 5,000 civic leaders in the audience. He is tremendously effective at communicating the struggles that veterans face and the opportunity we have to serve them.

In the Emergency Services, we see and hear the worst - and we do all that we can to celebrate the best. J.R. walked away with a small piece of everyone of us that day - we came from all parts of the U.S., Canada and Malaysia. A room rich with cultural and spiritual diversity, and he captivated all of us. I came away with renewed spirit. Doesn't get any better than that!

National Emergency Number Association

J.R.'s message to our team of sales professionals, executives and operations leaders was incredibly powerful. The audience represented a diverse mix of roles and backgrounds, but to a person, J.R.'s message was heartfelt and it truly resonated. Each person in the audience was touched by his passion, humility and sense of humor when sharing his story. We went from tears to laughter, and then to an overwhelming feeling of empowerment. J.R. leaves his audience with the belief in themselves that the sky is truly the limit. . I would highly recommend J.R. Martinez as a highly-effective inspirational speaker.

The J.R. appearance went great. He couldn't have been nicer or more enthusiastic.

JR received very positive reviews! I heard nothing but good things about him. Our awards portion of the show went long and he just went with it and modified his talk a bit to end on time. He was very personable with everyone at the meet and greet.

I have known J.R. Martinez since 2007, and I have to say that I have met very few people who
have not only recovered but have become hugely inspirational. The truth is J.R. should not have
survived, but because of this miracle he is on a mission. Now he is driving down that road with
amazing speed

Martinez never quit on life, and there are many who are grateful he didn't....Instead of hiding from
his situation, Martinez became a beacon of courage for wounded warriors, helping them visualize
the possibilities in life.
