J.D. Martinez Family
J.D. Martinez was born Julio Daniel Martinez in Miami, Florida, on August 21, 1987. J.D. is one of the children of Julio and his wife Mayra Martinez, Cuban immigrants who by the time they came to the U.S already had three children.
According to J.D., his father Julio worked over 100 hours a week at Domino’s Pizza before he started his roofing company in South Florida. His momma he gives credit for getting him up his feet whenever he was feeling down.
My mother was always there picking me up whenever I would come home and I was down, depressed about something, whatever it might have been, a bad game or whatever. She would be there and she would be like, ‘Let’s go, tomorrow is a new day.’ She’s there pumping me up, getting ready for tomorrow. She never let me get too down on myself. She always was there to pick me up.
J.D. has five sisters.
I have five sisters, but I lived with two and at a time (with) three of them, so there were a lot of girls around the house. So it was a little bit different. Good luck getting in the bathroom for anything, because someone was doing their makeup, something was going on. You’re like, ‘I got to go to the bathroom! Can you get out please?’
You’d get dragged out the rooms. It was just a mess. They used to dress me up. I have pictures where they threatened to reveal them, ‘I am going to blackmail you with these pictures.’ I just laugh about it because the stuff they did to me, I look back and I am like, ‘Dude, you guys were evil. What you guys do to me!’ They love it.
