When at work, we work together....
Daniel Lambert, Sous Chef
Brian Jordan, Sous Chef
Karissa Lum, Sous Chef
Jalie Rivas, Commis
Jalie is the daughter of Chef J & Jakota. She started her culinary career at the age of 5, when Chef J taught her to make cookies from scratch for his own selfish reasons... Since then, she has blossomed in the kitchen. She is a part of every event at dinner by JR and cannot wait until the family opens their restaurant! "I want a job for my birthday!"
Chris Rivas, Commis
The Chef's older brother who has been around since the beginning (Get it? Since he was born). His passion revolves around automotive and music but he has the same intensity as Chef J for food. Originally a skeptic of his brother's mission, Chris became a believer and full hearted supported just after experiencing one service (behind the scenes). Tasting the food cemented both his support and belief in Chef J's purpose. He would call himself a committed part-time cook, looking to bring joy to those who he can cook for and, although he may not have the talent or skill set displayed by his brother, he shares Chef J’s passion to 'fulfill' dinner by JR guests and make it "about the food!"
