We grow companies by “making it happen” within the context of their world, their brand, their products and services, their markets and their media.

For thought leaders seeking break-through brand awareness, JJR is one of the fastest growing marketing and public relations agencies in Chicago’s west suburbs. We practice accountability that leads to high performance results, extra value that leads to an enjoyable relationship, and passionate perspective that leads to explosive creative. Every engagement is a mission to place a client's brand in the center of their most influential media creating buzz, leads, referrals, sales, growth and, at the end of the day, loyal brand advocates.


We strive to stir emotion, response and results

Great accomplishments start with people who are relentless. Nothing stands in their way of reaching higher and higher peaks. We’re talking about business milestones like greater brand recognition, buzz, business growth, lead generation and meaningful market engagement. Working with JJR means engaging a team of people who have made the climb before, making your way up a little easier and a lot more enjoyable.



Taking you to the next level means focusing on objectives. Does your marketing center around your greatest opportunities? In a tight race, do you sport the competitive advantage? Is your brand distinctive, memorable, rock solid? Are you engaging in social media dialogue with the right people at the right times? JJR offers the currency of strong ideas, a roadmap to chart your course, and a reverent respect for your budget. Our approach is simple: stir emotion with a compelling message, engage an audience on their terms, and deliver measurable results to you, our client. This is why we don’t do projects. Nope. We take on missions—led by JJR Mission Managers (we also call them fearless, committed and unstoppable, and that’s on an average day).

Public Relations


Our clients want press. They want to be talked about. In blogs and tweets, on front-page covers and award podiums, in business pages and on the evening news. They want magazine features and social media placements and LinkedIn shares. They want to be top of mind. We expect our clients to be media greedy. It’s a good thing because we have high expectations too. At JJR, public relations is an energy that builds relationships across diverse mediums. Because one road will never reach everyone in your audience. Through the art of modern conversation, we engage media influencers that connect you to your customers, peers, referral sources, employees and investors. Plus, as journalists and editors ourselves, we’ve earned the media’s respect for pitching relevant, timely news angles.

Content & Creative


Our creative nets more than just awards. We stir emotion, response and results through identity programs, videos, websites, ghostwriting and book design, lead generation programs, online campaigns and more. First step: sitting down with you and your team to understand your business targets. We look at position statements, branding audits, market research, audience personas, and your corporate vision. We then transform these into unforgettable visuals that resonate your brand. Good design empowers the marketing message. It makes it dance. Right into the hearts of the people who can help your company grow. Similarly, good content keeps people reading past the punch line. And it makes them think and feel.

Our Practice Areas

What we focus on

B2B & B2C

B2B is a tall, rocky mountain. B2C is shorter, but slippery with lots of streams. In either one, JJR helps find your footing with relationship building strategy and spot-on messaging.

Professional Services

We identify the right audiences and growing relationships. The winding trails are many. Luckily, we’ve got the experience and talent to chart a great course.


From waterparks to themed entertainment complexes and festivals, JJR can boost your attendance with our integrated direct marketing approach.


Made-in-America pride abounds. JJR has elevated the stature of its manufacturing clients and created groundbreaking creative milestones in traditional industries.


Marketing’s terrain is cut from diverse cultures. JJR’s successful, multicultural campaigns have created pathways to new buyers and expanded customer loyalty.


Cause marketing demands a thematic approach to donor cultivation and brand awareness. JJR’s emotionally-charged messaging impacts the non-profit’s unique journey up the hill.


The climb for authors can be steep and even lonely. JJR is an author’s guide to reaching the pinnacle: publishing and promotion of a book.


It’s all about the experience in the rugged trek to attract customers and cultivate loyalty in the hospitality industry. JJR has an exemplary track record for restaurants, lodging clients.


The Company Talents

The agency core team is changing. What used to be an art-and-strategy duo is rapidly evolving into an art, copy, media, PR and business hodgepodge. Look behind any success story and you’ll usually find a great team, a group of passionate people who raise each other’s game.  When thinking about productivity we often focus on the individual, yet it’s by optimizing teams that we can truly take our missions (not projects) to the next level.
