John came onboard Roell Painting in the summer of 2019 as a heralded 5 tool crossover player from the liquor distribution business. While those 5 tools are mostly unclear, what was clear was that John can relate to just about anybody, which has served him very well when meeting with new customers. Hailing from Mankato, MN, John grew up playing sports and parlayed his love of sports into a successful collegiate baseball career at Bethany Lutheran, where he still holds both the single season and career home run record. If the name Ojanpa rings a bell, it might be because John also spent part of his career presiding over the KFAN airwaves alongside the likes of Dan Barreiro on Sunday Sermons. When he’s not sending outfielders to the warning track, making the turn, or humming the melody of “Careless Whisper,” John enjoys spending time with his daughters Kamryn (7) and Kyleigh (5) at their home in Victoria.
