Juan is running for United States Senate as a Democrat in the great state of Maryland. Juan is a proud graduate of The United States Military Academy at West Point (‘89) and is a Gulf War Veteran. As a graduate of West Point he was taught the values of Duty, Honor, Country, and a lifetime of service to the nation. These values have lived in him and carried him throughout his life. They’re also the reason he looks to now serve in the United States Senate for the great state of Maryland.
After graduation Juan became an Officer in the US Army (1989-1994) and led a platoon in Desert Shield/Desert Storm in the 197th Infantry Brigade which was part of the 24th Infantry Division. During his time in service, Juan’s commander said, “Our soldiers deserve this bright, innovative officer in key troop assignments. He is one of the Army’s best.”
His parents, Juan Sr. and Dinorah Dominguez, who emigrated from Cuba to America as teenagers, have played an integral role in his life. Married for over 55 years, they instilled in him the value of hard work, the importance of family, and the significance of democracy and freedom in America. Juan has used those lessons to not only become a successful businessman but also a dedicated husband and father of two.
Juan’s candidacy is one of hope, bipartisanship, and a desire to serve the citizens of Maryland and the country to reach maximum potential. In many ways, he sees a government that has drifted away from a core tenet, of being for the people. Juan plans to redirect the focus to serving citizens first; making our schools better, serving our Veterans as they deserve, and helping each of us to achieve the American dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. “I will wake up every day committed to marshaling our time, energy, and resources to achieve these goals and once again make Washington work for you as opposed to the other way around.”
As a business executive he is laser focused on achieving key goals while also building and supporting his team. This approach has consistently earned him top awards in leadership and sales, including the prestigious President’s Club award for top performers in multiple industries. While on vacation in 2016, Juan helped rescue 3 teenagers drowning in the ocean on Miami Beach. The next day he was recognized and awarded by the Miami Beach Police Department. As the saying goes, “once a soldier, always a soldier.”
Juan resides near Annapolis, MD with his wife Cheyenne Dominguez and their two boys, Sovann and Marcellus, and two dogs, Tucker and Junior. In his spare time he enjoys tennis, and coaching youth baseball and basketball. He’s also run a total of 11 marathons throughout the US. The family is a proud supporter of The United States Naval Academy (with the exception of when they play West Point) and enjoys being a local family sponsor for three Midshipmen.
