J.R. Martinez, Motivational Speaker and US Army Veteran, Headlines Service World Expo


LEWISVILLE, Texas — Actor, author, motivational speaker, war hero and retired U.S. Army soldier, J.R. Martinez, will speak at Service World Expo on "Plugging into Your Superpowers."

Martinez's is compelling and inspirational, enduring severe burns to over 34 percent of his body when his Humvee hit a roadside bomb. While three other soldiers were thrown out of the vehicle going up in flames, Martinez was stuck inside. His fight for survival is why the world stopped to listen.

"J.R.'s story is truly remarkable," said Liz Patrick, Service World's vice president of strategic alliances. "I can't wait to see how his message of resilience and optimism will inspire and motivate our audience."

Most people recognize Martinez from Dancing with the Stars, where he won the 13th season. His acting career began, however, on the Emmy Award winning daytime drama All My Children. Since then, he's appeared on numerous television shows such as The Oprah Winfrey Show and Ellen.

"This is a must-see presentation," said David Heimer, Service World's COO. "Moving, inspiring … it will leave you speechless."

Contractors want to hear Martinez speak about his captivating experiences that have changed the lives of millions. The Service World Expo audience will have that chance.
