John was a mentor and a friend at two law firms--Chadbourne & Parke and then Herrick. He was a genuinely nice man and a skilled lawyer. Terribly saddened by his loss. RIP John.
Mark Schwartz left a message on June 29, 2020:
I was saddened to hear of John's passing and extend my condolences to his family. Good men are a rare breed, and John fell easily into this category. We overlapped at Herrick until I left in 1995, and over the years we stayed in contact, whether over a telephone chat or a visit, and he was always happy to say hullo and catch up. May you be comforted and strengthened by your good memories. Wishing you all Long Life.
The Albergo Family left a message on June 27, 2020:

Barry Werbin left a message on June 25, 2020:
John was a friend and colleague of mine at our law firm for over two decades, and we regularly bonded over photography and occasionally cars, two passions we shared. We'd end up getting the same camera equipment and then sharing our photos. Last year he encouraged me to get a vintage sports car I was eying, emphasizing that life's too short and we need to enjoy it while we still can. That was his philosophy that I will always cherish. John's joy of life was contagious and I will miss him terribly.
Jonathan Gellman left a message on June 25, 2020:
As an outside counsel to my agency, John was not only thorough, but kind and unruffled. To talk with him on a matter was to have the sense of having his full attention, as if there were no other interests or pressures in his life. (I’ll take a risk here: while John was unique, at times he reminded me of the thoughtful compassion of a Mr. Rogers.) His voice resonated with an embrace that was instructive in ways that went far beyond legal advice. His voice is now silent, but its resonance and his attention reverberate.

John – I am thankful to have shared many memories with you, family parties and vacations, concerts, and of course, the YANKEE GAMES! You always made me laugh and told the best stories. I will miss you and will carry these memories with me for the rest of my life. I am thankful to be your brother in law; our family will not be the same without you. God Bless you and may you rest in peace. Love Anthony
Christine Leotta left a message on June 23, 2020:
John - You have been an influence in my life, for almost all my life. I have always looked up to you and knew I could rely on you for anything, you were always looking out for me. We have had so many laughs and good times together, these memories will be cherished. I will always remember our time at the cruise ship bar for the Austin Powers look alike night, laughing until they closed, I didn’t want the night to end. So many stories to be told. You have been an amazing brother-in-law and I will miss you more than words can say. You were a genuine, good hearted, happy person that everyone wanted to be around. You were taken from us too soon, I will think about you every day, I love you! Christine

John you were a gift given to our family that was taken away way too soon! I will always cherish the memories that we have - all the vacations taken together, celebrations, dinners, bbq excellence, and times we spent just hanging out. You always had a funny story to tell and got joy in seeing and making people happy. You made everyone around you feel good. You will be missed beyond words and loved forever! Love, Barbara and Scott
Paul Mills left a message on June 23, 2020:
John was my roommate in college. After I graduated, we went our separate ways and many years later we reconnected via facebook. Sadly, I learned of his passing from his daughter's posting. His family, his friends, lost a good man. RIP John. - Paul Mills
Lorraine Vazquez left a message on June 23, 2020:
John, You have no idea how much you will be missed. We have had so many great times together. I think back to the times you and Kathleen lived in NYC - eating at Mimi’s, playing board games. We were always so impressed with your “Backwords” skills. You were always our source for trivia or TV theme songs. Thank you for all the meals, even though you threatened to claim me as a dependent. Thanks for always letting me be the third wheel. You will always be loved and remembered. Love, Lorraine
Mom and Dad left a message on June 23, 2020:

Douglas Heller left a message on June 23, 2020:
John will be missed. As a colleague, I found John to be extremely helpful, cooperative and generous with his time, helping with legal opinions and lending issues. He was very friendly and spoke about his family and how much he enjoyed them. He was terrific to work with.

Connor McBride left a message on June 22, 2020:
John was a fantastic man and an amazing father. He made me feel like part of the family every time I came to the house. We used to talk about how great All-American whenever I was there and his love for scotch, especially Macallan and I will never forget that. My condolences to the St. Jeanos family and I will continue to keep them in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Connor
Vic Rocco left a message on June 22, 2020:
I was John's law partner and met him most mornings as he waited for the bus from Penn Station to the office. We typically shared the frustrations of our daily commute on the LIRR and NYC Transit system, What should have been a five minute trip often took much longer and our conversations would drift to our careers and our families. John was very proud of his his entire family, especially his children and their accomplishments. He was warm-hearted and always greeted me with a smile, even on the worst weather days when commuting is especially difficult. He had an honest, quick and incisive wit and never feared speaking his mind. Herrick has lost a valuable member of its family and I've a lost a wonderful travel companion who brightened up my mornings. My condolences to John's family on its loss

We were so very sad and sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a terrific person and a loyal friend. I will cherish my great memories of our time together. The football game tailgates, camping in Connecticut, dining out with him & Kathy and just enjoying life together. I will never forget all the wonderful times we spent together. You have my heartfelt sympathy. Mike & Holly Peco.
Nancy Strack-Gasparro left a message on June 22, 2020:
I am so saddened to hear of John's passing. We worked together for too many years to count and, even when we didn't work together, we would frequently run into each other at Penn Station. We would often chat on the way to work and he was so very proud of his family and his children. John was one of the nicest, kindest souls and he will be missed so much. My deepest sympathies. :(

I’m so sorry to hear this. Very upset I remember us hanging out watching the boys play mustang football. And eat ice cream every practice. I remember when John bought his custom Audi. He was so proud of the seats in the car. RIP John God bless
