About Us

Welcome and thank you for visiting my company’s website! I am truly honored to present to you some of my work, which I have worked so adamantly to perfect over the years. Beginning in the summer of 2007, JDonovan Productions was a vision that had been longtime coming, stemming from my years spent in the NYC Foster Care. Combining my strong oratorical and marketing skills, I turned what once seemed like an outlandish and unattainable dream into a reality. By 2012, I was working alongside Jennifer Graziano, the Executive Producer of Mob Wives, who later that year engaged me to produce my first event for the TV program "Big Ang" to be aired that summer.

Quickly, I amassed a large clientele of television personalities from VH1, MTV, Bravo & Oxygen networks. I currently represent some of today's most desirable talent.

This led to the 2013 launch of our Public Relations services with some of our top clients being featured in OK Magazine, In Touch Weekly, Radar Online, and TMZ, to name a few. Additionally, aside from being actively involved in reality TV, event production, and talent booking, I have also had the opportunity to serve as a Casting Producer for Smaq Media & Casting.

Overall, due to the myriad of services I offer and that my clients seek, I do not represent any one artist or TV personality. Instead I serve as a negotiator between artists, management companies, and agents. All of this is done upholding my commitment to ensure that each client has the best experience possible. Therefore, no matter what your level of involvement may be, I can assist you in your efforts to create a desirable image for your company or client. If interested in my services or event hosting presented by me, please submit an inquiry below.

-Much Love

Deena Cortese ( MTV JERSEY SHORE) TV Personality

Deena Nicole Cortese (born January 11, 1987) is an American reality television personality who has appeared on the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore” since 2011. Cortese was born in the New Egypt section of Plumsted Township, New Jersey to Italian American parents. Cortese graduated from New Egypt High School and briefly attended Brookdale Community College. Deena Nicole Cortese, also known as "The Blast in a Glass," joined the cast of the hit MTV show “Jersey Shore” in its third season and has continued to make the show a blockbuster hit for the network with record-breaking ratings each week. Initially, Deena was cast to be in Season 1 of “Jersey Shore,” but turned it down to be with her family. When cast member Angelina Pivarnick left the show after filming Season 2, the producers (along with her good friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi) convinced Cortese to join the cast for Season 3.

She has made an impact both in Italy and Seaside with her outspoken personality and key phrases such as “Lean Cuisines,” “backpacks,” “walking holiday,” “get real” and her latest “Merp,” among others. Since her premiere on the show, Deena has gained over 1.3 followers on Twitter and she tours the country to meet her fans because she believes in bringing the party to them. Her popularity has lead to several business opportunities that include being a spokesperson for Stacker 2 6 Hour Energy Drink, the brand ambassador for the hair care line “Wisper” and she also has a clothing line in the works. Deena continues to reside in New Egypt, NJ with her family and 3 cats, Buddy, Tinks, Mako and a Dog named Chewy. Deena lives life to the fullest and every second like it’s her last. While she has loved her time spent on “Jersey Shore,” Deena aspires to become a voice-over artist for animated films and television shows. Deena is very family oriented and enjoys surrounding herself with the ones who care for her most; including her fans.

Jay G is a classic womanizing heartthrob (or so he thinks), who doesn't shy away from conflict. He works as an emcee and promoter at a club where he spends most of his time omitting the truth to pick up girls and ultimately getting them to do whatever he wants. Jay has been dating his girlfriend, Jenna, for almost two years. Although the relationship is off and on, Jay doesn't seem to want to settle down and continues his "player" ways. Jay has never really left his hometown of the Bronx, and with his NY attitude hitting San Francisco, these ladies better watch out. Flirting with his 60,000 followers on Twitter and Instagram constantly leaves him in the doghouse with Jenna, yet he always knows the right things to say to avoid getting caught. Once Jenna moves into the house, will Jay stop the flirting so they can move towards making it official - AGAIN?

At this young age he even got support from Ultra Records producer, ‘Dank” and had him headline AJ’s next event. His level of knowledge and hunger for greatness is truly unmatched. Now producing seriously for over five years, AJ has dominated all the fine skill sets of even the greatest of producers. When you diagnose a Radio Smash song, you will truly be amazed. Not only does he comprehend the more advanced methods of production, he also reconstructs them from a scientific level. AJ is on the right path to becoming a legend of his craft. Sal came into the picture at late 2011. Previously, he had also been brought up into a world full of music. He played in numerous bands and learned music theory at a very young age.

They are working with a production company to develop a state of the art live stage setting to further enhance their live performances. They are also working with a manufacturing and distribution company to develop their own clothing line. On top of all this, they are also working with a TV production company to develop their own web series that portrays their lives and work ethic, which will educate and entertain future producers.

This stylish sensitive ladies man from East Providence loves to dress to impress and spends 30 minutes a day sprucing his hair. Born in Portugal, on the island of Pico, Bruno was raised with old-fashioned values and following Portuguese traditions such as a ceremonial slaughtering of pigs. He loved his time on the island and even had his own pet cow! Although he has close with his father, their relationship was filled with tough love. Bruno was raised with tough love, sent to a Catholic school where discipline was not always verbal, and as a result, developed a bad temper. When he moved to the states, Bruno was bullied because he didn’t speak English very well. Bruno has a tough exterior, and isn’t intimidated by anyone. Once Bruno was arguing with his then girlfriend and stormed out of the house in a huff. While walking through the snow he was hit by a car going almost 50 mph and had to reteach himself how to walk and talk again. Despite the life altering experience, Bruno wears his scars proudly like a tattoo and feels the accident taught him to let go of his anger. Quite stubborn, Bruno hasn’t spoken to his brother Briah (a model in NYC) in three years because of a petty argument. Bruno is excited to test the waters outside of his small town in Providence and bring his unique style, culture and attitude to the Real World.
