JohnPaul is not only a member of Teamsters Local 25 and the American Moving team, but also is in the first stages of fulfilling his dream of being a Marine, as he is halfway through basic training at Parris Island, South Carolina.

After graduating Catholic Memorial High School in 2018, he spent a year at Mass Maritime. As a freshman first baseman, he was chosen as Buc of the Week for his impressive batting average, and while he was tearing it up on the baseball field, he was simultaneously preparing to enlist in the Marines.

In the spring of 2019, he committed to the Marines and in August, he began this new chapter as he headed south for basic training.

Kathleen Rowell, founder and CEO, is a proud mother of this Teamsters Local 25 and American Moving crew member. Mom is able to catch glimpses of his day to day life through the pictures military staff members post. She proudly shares that he has been chosen as leader of his platoon and is counting down the days to celebrate his graduation!
