John is defintely a great guy. He's always helpful and entertaining at the launches and willing to help anyone.

Time to help a fellow rocketeer in need.

Real sorry to hear about John, met him at MWP a couple of years ago and really liked him. Donation sent, I’ll order something too to help bump that up. Can anybody share more details about what happened?

Wishing John a speedy recovery. Let's all pitch in what we can. Donating the cost of one rocket kit, big or small will help.

For those of you that do not know John, a nicer guy couldn't be found. He is a mechanic at Southwest airlines and as such is allowed buddy passes for friends and family. John hooked me up with round trip airfare from NC to Chicago and a ride to the hotel and back for Midwestpower last year.. All totally free. I wish John a speedy recovery. The rocketry community is awesome. Last year during my illness(stroke) Ya'll donated almost 2 grand to help me with my expenses. I know john appreciates it as much as I did. THANKS!!!

Man; Strangely enough I had a stroke last year! Nothing like waking up in the Hospital. With a steel thing stapled to your head, with hoses running to.. OK, no reason to gross anyone out.

I was extremely lucky as I was already in the hospital. I woke up and was told I had had a stroke. I was on the phone when it happened and remember not being able to talk and the world running down to a stop.
