John was born and raised in Salem. When he realized he needed a break from all the rain, he decided to go to college in California, and graduated from Azusa Pacific in 2006 with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration. Since being in California, he missed having seasons and decided to move back to Salem and worked as a small business owner for an asphalt maintenance company. When it was time to move on to better work, John became a commercial project manager for Thomas Kay Textiles. He met his wife Becca through the young adult group at his church. Within a year of dating, they got married. Once he found out they were due with their first child, he decided to quit at Thomas Kay and become his own boss and focus on real estate investing. That allowed him to be home with his family more often and have more flexibility with family life. They currently have two amazing kids, and John spends most of his time with his family planning trips and finding time to get away with them.
John has served on the board of directors for Church on the Hill, as well as Young Life here in Salem. He became aware of Salem Angels through Addie Box who connected John and his family to help another foster family in need.
John is passionate about helping others and connecting people with resources to make them successful. He is excited to see how his strengths can be used as a board member for Salem Angels.
