Jillian “JJ” Simmons is a veteran radio/tv host and author from Cincinnati, Ohio. She has captivated listeners from major cities across the country, including her hometown Cincinnati (WIZF-FM), Dayton (WROU-FM), New York City (WBLS-FM, where she worked alongside “The Queen of All Media,” Wendy Williams), Indianapolis (WHHH-FM), and Houston (KBXX-FM).
In addition to being a positive influence on people she meets through her community work, JJ is a proud mother to a beautiful daughter. She uses her passion for the” mommy experience” to motivate other single mothers through her network and website SingleMomsRock.com. Although she has always had an innate desire to empower others, raising a daughter has deepened her desire to foster change in the lives of young girls, and inspired her to give birth to JJ’s I’m Me Foundation. Her foundation encourages at risk middle and high school girls to be the best version of themselves, by exposing them to leaders and influencers in the community who provide career development, lifestyle planning, health and wellness training, and character education.
Simmons has authored two books, Without Bruises: A Journey to Hope, Help and Healing and Respect My Crown: A 30-Day Affirmation Journal to Manifest Your Vision.
