John Ricci is a dedicated family man, married to his wife Joann for 50 years. They are lucky to have their three beautiful daughters living close by in Monmouth County with their families. They have 8 grandchildren. John has a BS in economics from St. Peter’s College in Jersey City. Most of John’s career has been as a “food broker”. The last several years he has served as a consultant to companies doing business with the major Warehouse Food Clubs. When he is not at one of the many family activities, you will find John front and center, eager to help in any task that an Operation Beachhead event asks of him; from picking up equipment, to setting up and breaking down. His rare dedication and wonderful sense of humor brings extraordinary warmth to Operation Beachhead. During the summer sessions, John and Joann also provide a luncheon for over 50 people every year for one Operation Beachhead summers’ events. We are very fortunate to have him as part of the Operation Beachhead family.
