J.D. Vance American politician, author, lawyer, and businessman

Senator JD Vance represents the wonderful state of Ohio in the US Senate. He was sworn in as the U.S. Senator on January 3, 2023, having been elected in 2022.

JD grew up in Middletown, Ohio, a formerly thriving American industrial town where residents could have middle-class, satisfying lives on a single salary. Many of those excellent positions vanished over time, and JD’s family was just one of many who felt the consequences.

At home and in school, there was a lot of turmoil. His savior was his grandma whom he called Mamaw. She kept him on the straight and narrow with her strict love and discipline. She was a “blue dog” Democrat who cultivated a strong Christian faith in her family as well as 19 weapons. Not long after JD enlisted in the USMC, she passed away in 2005.

After serving his country in the Iraq War, JD went on to earn degrees from Yale Law School and Ohio State University. His best-selling novel, Hillbilly Elegy, was made into a Netflix film. In addition, he founded a company whose goal is to increase employment and opportunities in the American Midwest.

Personal Life and Career

In Middletown, a small Rust Belt community in southwest Ohio, Vance was born James Donald Bowman. Don and Bev Bowman his parents, were of Scots-Irish descent. Bev gave birth to Lindsay, his older half-sister a few weeks after she graduated from high school.

James’s parents separated while he was a small child. He finally adopted his mother’s maiden name, Vance, as his surname when she altered his middle name to David.

He later attended Yale Law School where he graduated in 2013 with a law degree. After that, he worked for investment firms in California and other states as well as the international legal company Sidley Austin LLP.
