Following his time at Yale University, Vance moved to San Francisco to work in the technology industry after working with a corporate law firm. He was a principal at Mithril Capital, Peter Thiel‘s venture capital firm.

Vance joined CNN as a contributor in January 2017. In April 2017, Ron Howard announced that he would direct a film adaptation of Hillbilly Elegy for Netflix in 2020, starring Owen Asztalos and Gabriel Basso as J.D. Vance.

J.D. Vance- early life

J.D. Vance was born on August 2, 1984, in Middletown, Ohio, located between Cincinnati and Dayton. He was formerly known as James Donald Bowman. He is the son of Donald Bowman and Bev Vance and is of Scots-Irish descent. 

Vance’s parents divorced when he was just a little boy. Vance and his sister, Lindsay, were raised primarily by his grandparents, James and Bonnie Vance, whom they called “Mamaw and Papaw”. J. D. later was known by the name James Hamel, the surname of his stepfather, until the time he adopted the surname ‘Vance’ to honour his grandparents.

Vance’s early life was marked by uncertainty and trauma, much due to his mother, Beverly Vance’s drug addiction and emotional instability. 

Bev Vance would subject J.D. and his sister to repeated incidents of domestic violence, substance abuse, and instability due to her lack of emotional maturity that hindered her ability to form stable romantic relationships. Bev, who acquired a hot-headed attitude from her mother, sadly took it a step too far by combining her attitude with her affinity towards drugs and alcohol. When her kids Lindsay and J.D. were growing up, she stayed out late at night to enjoy herself, instead of taking care of them.
