Watch JJ's Backstory
Who do you admire most in the world?
My grandfather -- he became blind at age 30 (my age) after starting a successful law career that he had to leave behind. He never let it get him down and dedicated his life to raising an amazing family. He battled cancer six times before it finally took his life.
What is your favorite memory from your childhood?
Playing Gaston (from Beauty and the Beast) in my 4th grade play. It was my first time acting and I had an amazing time -- plus all the love and support I got from my family doing it was incredible.
What is the most romantic present you have ever received and why?
My girlfriend was living in China for the summer and surprised me by booking a trip to see me in Boston. She brought with her this amazing custom light-up costume she had made for me for Burning Man. It was so thoughtful.
What does being married mean to you?
Being married means finding someone who you live for and care for more than yourself, whose happiness and well-being comes above your own, and who the thought of not waking up next to each morning is the most depressing thought you could have.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
To never have to sleep/never get tired. I love my sleep but can only imagine all I could do and learn if I had an extra 6-8 hours in my day.
