John, the son of a sheriff’s department captain and an elementary school teacher, grew up right here in Marietta, GA. As a child, he was friendly, sometimes a troublemaker and always a comedian.

Though legally deaf, John was hired as a mail clerk at the Social Security Administration (SSA), and has had a steady job — and a paycheck — for over 12 years now.

John’s favorite thing about his job is working with his coworkers to do the best job he can for their SSA customers.

John loves to draw and work on the computer, and hopes to someday become a comic book or fashion design artist. “But until then, I love working with my Nobis Enterprises colleagues at SSA,” he said.
