John is very close to his family; all who still live in Wilmington, including his mother; his twin brother, Chris; older brother, Billy; younger brother, Parker; and sister, Rachel. John and his wife, Allie, welcomed their daughter, Piper, into the world in July 2015. In their free time, they enjoy spending time outdoors with their two dogs, Mya and Boo Radley. John focuses on living an active lifestyle by surfing, hiking, golfing, and traveling.
