John first heard about the Guelph Wish Fund for Children from Ron Asselstine. Because he himself was very sick as a young child, he wanted to give back to the community in a meaningful way, so he joined the Board in 2018. He is a member of the Finance/Fundraising Committee. John is a retired Bank Executive and is currently a CPA and partner in his own accounting firm – J & L Accounting Services. John lives in Waterloo with his wife, Lori, has 2 children, Courtney and Jessica, and a dog named Magic.
