J. D. Reding is the father of Tory Reding. He moves to the O' Grady farm for the summer with his daughter. While unpacking, he hears a cat crying. He sticks his arm in a tree trying to rescue it, but his hand was severely bitten by the Leprechaun. He is then brought to a hospital in town. After the leprechaun is killed, J.D. gets a lift back to the farm with the police and is briefly seen reuniting with Tory.
