Joy-Ann Reid of 'Am Joy' & Husband Jason's Son Jmar Reid Is an Actor and NYC Model
She is the host of “AM Joy” on weekend mornings and the author of several books. And her middle son is a very talented man, recently graduated and with a lot of wish to make his dreams turn to reality.
Jmar Reid is a young actor in New York City. He graduated from theatre and creative writing in The New School, Eugene Lang. On his website, he shares his artistic projects, which include various interests.
Jo-Ann is married to Jason Reid, a documentary film editor for the Discovery Channel. They have three children together. Besides, she is a very proud mother. When her son Jmar participated in a theater play with his classmates, she wrote:
“So proud of my very talented (and very tall) middle child @kinyemi12 (Jmar Reid - write that down) who just killed it in the @thenewschool production of #TheLaramieProject (@langlaramieproject). Amazing work by the entire cast, director and producers. Kudos all!”
Jmar started a project with some friends this new year. They formed a band called Ushers Sing Hamilton. The group performs in the theater/film realm as well, performing covers of the songs from the show. They currently have a fundraising campaign to finance themselves.
The boy is always busy, just like his mother, who is a tireless worker. She spends her days either working on scripts, talking to sources, or tweaking her show. All her three kids are older now, 22, 21, and 19, and she is not parenting a lot lately.

Joy-Ann Reid is the host of "AM Joy," a twice-weekly political talk show that airs weekend mornings on MSNBC. In addition to her hosting duties, Joy serves as a political analyst, appearing on NBC News and MSNBC programs.
Because of her views expressed in public, she has been involved in some controversy on several occasions. A couple of years ago, a controversy was generated by certain points of view expressed in the early 2000s. It remains as evidence that people grow and their point of view change, and Joy-Ann is not an exception.
