John was a consultant to well-known fashion designer, Perry Ellis. He was Vice-President of manufacturing at McGregor Corporation, Executive Vice-President of Operations at Thompson Company, President and CEO of Southbound Sourcing and President and CEO of JJ Isaac, Inc.
John also did consulting, in addition to having responsibilities for numerous apparel facilities throughout Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, United States and other offshore operations.
John was well respected by all who knew him for his integrity and honesty. He was a gentleman, had a "giagantic" kind spirit, generous to all and treated everyone the same. He was energetic and always full of life.
Of all John's achievements, he was most proud of his family. He loved them with everything in him. There was nothing that could compare to the happiness of being surrounded by his family.
