JD Consulting is a lobbying consultancy owned by Jill Gimmel Daschle, the daughter-in-law of former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle (D-South Dakota).

Daschle's wife Jill Daschle also works as a lobbyist for the firm of Baker Donelson Bearman & Caldwell, where her clients include American Airlines, Boeing and Lockheed Martin.

Through her connection to the political firm Sullivan and Baldick, Jill Gimmel Daschle worked previously as a lobbyist for Northwest Airlines and Freddie Mac. "Should Jill Daschle be required to disclose her clients and her relationship to the senator?" asked a report on CNBC in August 2003. "And should she be prohibited from lobbying her father-in-law's office? As it stands, she doesn't have to reveal the family connection, and there's no prohibition on lobbying him, although the senator's office says that she hasn't." [1]
