A near-native of Fort Myers, John returns to the Miracle after a 17-year absence. John attended Cypress Lake High School, Edison College and graduated cum laude from Tusculum College in Greeneville, Tenn. as a three-year varisty letterman in baseball. An original Miracle employee from 1992-1995, John has served in virtually every front office capacity possible including general manager, president, and minority owner. The 2012 campaign marks his 22nd year in professional baseball.

After leaving the Miracle and the Goldklang Group, John and his family owned the Kalamazoo Kodiaks in Michigan and the London Werewolves of the Frontier League where he served as General Manager. From 2005-2009, John was President of the Sioux Falls Canaries in South Dakota. He has also been involved with baseball clubs in Madison, Wisc., Joilet, Ill., St. Paul, Minn., O'Fallon, Missouri; and Pittsfield, Mass. John's first year in baseball was 1990 with the Fort Myers Sun Sox of the Senior Professional Baseball Association (SPBA).

Fun Facts: John is believed to be the only person to have worked for the two teams owned by Jimmy Buffett (the Miracle and the Madison Black Wolf) and has three championship rings from three different leagues (Frontier League 1999; Northern League 2004, and American Association 2008)

John, his wife Jennifer and son TJ, live in South Fort Myers and enjoy all the outdoor activities that Southwest Florida has to offer. The Harry Chapin Food Bank is where they volunteer their time.
