Coming from a large family, John understands the dedication it takes to raise a successful family and knows that family values are an important part of everyone’s life.
Like many, John came to Ocean View by way of the military. Because of its rich history, beautiful nature, and active community residents, John felt that this was the best place to make a home for his wife and son.

Shortly after 9/11, he Enlisted in the U.S. Navy and completed Boot Camp in Great Lakes, IL, in 2002. Three years later, he was commissioned as an Officer in the U.S. Navy, and was appointed as an Ensign by the President of the United States.

His Military awards include: U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, U.S. National Defense Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, War on terrorism Medal, various ribbons and letters of appreciation for his service. John was recognized by the U.S. Congress for his “tireless efforts in developing and strengthening friendship and understanding between the communities.” Recently, after 7 years of service in the Navy, he transferred to the Reserves and started a small business in the 87th district (Norfolk) to do his part to get our economy moving again.
