Born and raised in Harrisburg, John graduated from Central Dauphin High School and then earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a focus on Urban Planning.
When John returned home from college, he rejoined the family business. Building on his past experiences as a laborer, superintendent and project manager John bought the business along with his brother.
John didn’t just manage the business; he innovated and grew the business into a recognized leader in construction, development, and property management. By the time John sold his interest in the company, Triple Crown Corporation had developed over 2000 lots, built over 1600 homes, and managed 2.5 million square feet of retail, office, warehousing, and distribution buildings.
John’s civic involvement includes leading various community and church improvement projects, serving as chairman of the building committee for the new Bishop McDevitt High School, building benefit homes for Habitat for Humanity and Holy Name of Jesus Church, supporting education, athletic teams, and fundraising for many causes.
John intends to put his years of private sector and philanthropic experience to work for the people of the 15th District. John believes Harrisburg is broken and it is going to take business and community leaders to fix it, not career politicians.
John is happily married to his wife Maria. They have
two grown children, Alessandro and Bianca.
