Joe was born and raised in Elizabeth, New Jersey where he served as a Firefighter/Captain for 28.5 years. He and his wife, Becky, who’s from New York, are now permanent residents here in Fort Myers. Joe and Becky have three beautiful children. Their daughter, Demi, and her husband, David, live in Boston with Joe & Becky's first grandson, David Jaysen. Their other children, Lea and Justin, both live in New Jersey. 
 

Joe joined the Riverside team in September 2021. He has a background in security where he served as the Security Manager at the Prudential Center Arena. He presently does school security and is a bank protection officer as well.

 

Joe has a passion for helping others and loves being a part of the Men’s Group Bible study here at Riverside Church. In their free time, Joe and Becky enjoy the beach, dining out and pickle ball (where on most days Becky has the upper hand).  Joe loves watching sports and a good cup of coffee or two.
