John joined School District 85 in May of 1988 and after 31.5 years as Chief Financial Officer John is taking a well-earned retirement. 

We hope he will enjoy some rest and relaxation before travelling to all of the places around the world that he still wants to explore and that he will enjoy this next chapter of his life, doing the things he loves.

John took the time to learn many duties, wore multiple hats and was an integral part of our school district. He was extremely knowledgeable and supportive of everybody in this organization and has helped many people in their roles over the years.

We would like to sincerely thank John for his consistent and continued loyalty and dedication to the School District. 

On behalf of everyone at School District 85, we wish you a long, happy, healthy retirement!
