 JDR supports clients in real estate, investment management, and property management and most recently in government as well as healthcare. “My goal has always been to broaden the spectrum at JDR,” John stated. In 2015 JDR expanded their offering to include the government and healthcare sectors. “We are currently applying for our HUBZone and various other certifications. In addition, JDR was recently selected for an RFI for HUD.” Over the past 6 months, JDR has been working on the marketing strategy for their Healthcare Solutions division. “JDR is continually creating partnerships, which will roll into future work opportunities for the company,” John said. 

JDR Consulting has been a certified LGBTBE member of the NGLCCNY for a year and a half. John said that being a member has given JDR entry into new organizations, brought new customers, and helped build new relationships. “I enjoy the camaraderie about the organization, about what they stand for, and how they are pushing for diversity,” John stated. “Opportunities like Matchmakers at the national conference are ones that you would not get in any other situation.” John attended the national conference in 2015 and will attend this year’s conference in Palm Springs as well.

John is originally from Ohio, but has been a New Yorker for more than 20 years. “I had visited New York a few times and fell in love with the city. I said to myself, ‘I’m moving to New York, I don’t care how, but I’m going!’” So at 22 years old, John got on a plane and has been here ever since. He and his husband currently live on the Upper West Side. John is always looking for ways to help others. He works in soup kitchens throughout the city; he is a Human’s Rights Activist and has served on the Board of Governors; and he helped the New York Steering Committee raise several million dollars. 

In his spare time, John and his husband like to take day trips around the tri-state and tour turn of the century homes in the area.
