About

Justin Osmond

Motivational Keynote Speaker

Justin Osmond, the 2nd son of Merrill & Mary Osmond was born with a severe/profound sensorial-neural hearing loss. Diagnosed at the age of 2 with a 90% hearing loss and after 12 years of intense speech and listening therapy, he can now speak with passion and through modern-day technology, hear with conviction. Considering the fact that he was a couple years behind his peers, he has shown through intense dedication, mental and physical exertion, that nothing can stop him from going after his dreams. There were many obstacles and challenges that represented stumbling blocks, despair and lack of hope. But his will-power, determination, desire, and hope surpassed all hurdles that stood in his way.  

Despite living with a profound hearing loss, Justin pressed forward with a perfect brightness of hope and a love for all humanity. Even after being told by teachers and professionals that he would never play a musical instrument, he went on to play the violin, viola, piano, and drums. He has received numerous awards such as the prestigious sterling scholarship in music, academic scholarships, honorary achievements, and many athletic titles in soccer, football, basketball, and track. He is also proud to represent the Boy Scouts of America as an Eagle Scout, and he currently has his Master’s in Business Administration.  

Due to Justin’s desire to help everyone that may be struggling with hearing loss, he launched the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund in honor of his late grandmother Olive. As Founder and CEO of the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund, Justin has one goal: to bring music to the ears of men, women and children living with hearing loss around the world. After serving for 11 years as public relations, board member, and a spokesperson for the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which is the largest outreach program in providing hearing help to children worldwide, Justin continues to travel the world inspiring those living with a hearing loss with his experience and story of hope and perseverance. Recently, he challenged himself to an “impossible” feat of running 250 miles in just 7 days in order to raise awareness and funding in honor of his Grandmother Olive, and to help raise funding for hearing devices for 25 deaf children. It’s been his hardest challenge to date, but also the most rewarding. Many life lessons were learned and applied as he trained for and completed this solo run and felt the love and support from others.  

Justin knows first-hand what it is like to live in a world without sound. In his recently published book “Hearing with my Heart,” he shares his story with the world in order to help everyone understand the struggles of living with a hearing loss and how to overcome it. He lives every day by his personal motto: “I may have a hearing loss, but that hearing loss does not have me.” Nothing gets him down and he loves inspiring others to go after what they want in life and that NOTHING is impossible. We all just need help sometimes in learning how to turn our weaknesses into our strengths!
