John has been a volunteer building houses with Constru Casa three times beginning in 2013. He joined the Friends of Constru Casa Board of Directors in 2014.
John retired in 2006 after a career with AT&T Bell Laboratories as a systems engineer. In retirement, he has served in fundraising roles for Doane College and for the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.
He volunteered for his first trip with Constru Casa because he wanted to help people. He continues to work with Constru Casa because he feels that the organization is making a very positive impact on the lives of the people of Guatemala. John agrees with the statement that “from those to whom much has been given, much is expected.”
