We learned about John’s passing this morning. I missed his annual birthday phone call on November 12th, I was sensing that something might have happened so I did a search and found out
about his passing. This leaves us so, so sad. He was our insurance agent since 1980 - so kind- so honest- so approachable - so informed.
He always spoke about his love for Cindy, his two children and grandchildren.
We send our sincerest condolences to his entire family. John was the absolute best and we will miss him so much. God Bless!

I just read the announcement of John's death from a NAIFA-NJ email today. I am so sorry. It is always especially sad when you lose one of the good guys. And, John was a good guy.

I first met John when he worked for Philadelphia Life. That gives you an idea how long I knew John. John was always a pleasure to know and to be in his company. John went out of his way in business to go that extra mile. I always had the feeling that it was the same in his personal life. i talked to John after he had retired and had that opportunity to wish him well. John was always a great guy and I will miss him.

I was saddened to hear of John’s passing and I wish all of his family the best. I knew John professionally through the insurance industry for many years, and my father knew him for many additional years. John wasn’t just a professional contact, he was a friend. He was sincere and genuine. I’m glad to have known John for the time I did and will miss him.

Jumper was a truly wonderful person ... always smiling and always willing to help everyone.
He was especially concerned about those less fortunate than himself.
He helped make TEYSA soccer the best soccer club in Pennsylvania. I am proud to have called him my friend.
