From some of the people who make up John's foundation
"John has brilliance that has not yet been unleashed. I am excited to see what he can accomplish. He has a brilliant mind, and we all have faith in him."
DAMIEN AND CRISTIAN
"He'll do anything he can to help. Through the better and worse times, he's there for you."
"I really appreciate John's love and care for his family and friends - whether talking on the phone or in person, he is there when we need him and he supports us no matter the situation."
Tobias the Owl
"There are very few people who have gone through so much and emerged so human. He has a very nuanced, textured appreciation for beauty, particularly for someone who has seen so much ugliness. And he's still capable of holding to love so tightly, so fiercely, and so fastidiously."
"John was the best big brother I could have asked for. He was always a hero and a role model."
"My brother! You are a true inspiration and I cannot tell you how much I look up to you as a man. I’ve learned so much about how to be by just watching you. You’ve taught me so much just through our conversations and time together. Thank you for being you, thank you for being a huge part of my growth as a man, thank you for being my brother and thank you for always being there for me. Love you big bro - Little bro"
"“John, you’ve always been someone whose dependable, kind, generous, and the first one to make someone feel comfortable (I remember specifically that the first time I was introduced to the whole family!). You’re the guy people want in a pinch with all your the “MacGyver” moves. You’re the guy whose willing to give the shirt off your back without asking questions (as long as it’s not your Dave Matthews Band shirt, right?! Haha). And you’re certainly the guy who just genuinely cares...thank you for always being there and for the brother you’ve been to me throughout these years!"
"Me: Hey, John, can I ask you an awkward question?
John: What’s up brother, you looking for a Mexican maid?
Me: Damn...yeah, that’s right"
