I met John here in Lexington, Ky several months ago. We would frequent the Chevy Chase Inn in our neighborhood, most often on Sunday evenings. He was absolutely the kindest man and was quite funny! The CCI family is very tight knit and we loved welcoming him into it. He always had a smile on his face and a hug to give when he saw me. He will be sorely missed. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

I had tremendously enjoyed my time working with John at UPS in the New York - New Jersey District. He was a great partner who was always positive, and willing to help out in any way. He will be greatly missed. Roger Arnesen - UPS Meadowlands

We love you John Kessler. You were the first friend of Ryans that I met almost 10 years ago. You always made me laugh and we cherished your friendship. I loved all the stories of the adventures you and Ryan went on. Thank you for being such a great friend, you will be missed.

I was very saddened to hear about John's passing earlier this week. John came to work for me at UPS in Lexington, KY just a few short years ago and I still remember his first day walking into the building. John always had a positive attitude and was more than happy to help a partner when they had questions. The office has been noticeably different without his presence. We all miss him and are thinking of his family.

I was lucky enough to know John for 3 years. He had a great sense of humor and was a pleasure to be around. I will miss John and I am praying for his family.

John was a Great Man to work with.
He was always positive and upbeat.
He would gladly lend a hand when needed.
I only knew him for a short time and was privileged to have worked with and known him.
He will be missed, thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
