J & Company Christian Modeling
About Us

J & Company Christian Modeling is a Christian based modeling company.

Our motto is we build, train, and develop from the inside. We believe God's
word; Jeremiah 29:11; I say this because I know what I am planning for you,
says the Lord. I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you
hope and a good future.

At J & Company we trust and believe that every person's life will be altered in
some way, shape, or form. We also believe that Christian modeling is powerful,
positive, and uplifting. We are confident in who we can be in this fashion
industry, in spite of what the standards appear to be. We will differ in our
self-esteem lecture, modeling techniques/training, and workshops. It is our goal
to enhance our outer man, but more importantly, work on transforming our
inner man.

                                                    MEET THE CEO

Jearlean Taylor
is a Baltimore native with a powerful story to tell.  Jearlean grew up in a loving family with both
parents in southwest Baltimore City. She is a twin and the fourth child of her parents.  She has three sisters and two
brothers.  Jearlean was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at the early age of three.  From that point on, her life
would be nothing short of a miracle.  Jearlean’s life has proven to be a journey of unexpected challenges.  “Pretty Girl
Blues” is a recollection of her journey.

In her autobiography, Jearlean gives you an in-depth view of her life as she viewed it from the “inside out”.  Her
outward appearance is one of beauty, high fashion, grace and charm.  Her inward existence was one of low self-esteem,
shame, insecurity and complex, chronic medical complications.  While struggling with the reality of her condition,
Jearlean still desired to start a family. Due to her condition, it would not be possible for her desire to become her
reality.   While others appeared to be living a “normal life”, Jearlean struggled with self-pity, unhappiness, depression
and low self-esteem.  Jearlean found it hard, embarrassing and painful to be considered “different”.  Journal writing
became the impetus of her internal healing.   

“Pretty Girl Blues” is different from many autobiographies. Jearlean’s candidness and transparency will shock some,
while inspiring and empowering others. The message she wants to convey in her autobiography is that miracles still
happen.  Jearlean is a believer of Jesus Christ and lives by the scripture Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have
for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

By sharing her story, Jearlean desires to inform readers that while life will “happen” to all of us, we all have the power
inside to survive and overcome any obstacle that presents itself.
“Pretty Girl Blues” is an inspiring story of hope.  It is a detailed story of how a person shifted from being a victim to
being a victor.  It is encouraging to readers to know that while change does not happen overnight, it can and will
happen for anyone who desires to conquer and overcome their challenges.

Jearlean Taylor is an author, motivational speaker, fashion model and owner of a modeling company.  She has been a
model for over 17 years (with two ostomy bags).  Her outer appearance does not show the physical condition that she
lives with daily.  As a result of her passion for modeling and her reality of cancer, Jearlean decided to open a Christian
centered modeling company, J & Company Christian Modeling, in 2006.  Their motto is “we build, train, and develop
from the inside out”.
