Letters

Passionate, Selfless, and Hardworking

John-Michael Parker is the most passionate, selfless, and hardworking person I’ve ever known and I’m not just saying that because he’s my older brother. John-Michael Parker is fueled by an innate desire to help others and it has been this way ever since I can remember.

He must have gotten it from my father, Dr. Michael Parker, who passed away very suddenly last year. Like my dad, you’ll never hear John-Michael Parker speaking negatively about anyone or making excuses when things don’t go his way. Instead, you’ll probably find him around town with his wife Joyce supporting local businesses and engaging the people of Madison, whom he so greatly cherishes.

John-Michael Parker treats everyone with respect, and kindness radiates from everything he does. He’s a natural-born listener and always values collaboration over compromise. John-Michael Parker is on a mission to give back as much as possible to the community that made him who he is today. Our family has been here, in the same house, for several decades and there’s nowhere else we’d rather be. My mother Clara (John’s #1 fan), sister Caitlin, brother Sam, and I continually benefit from John-Michael’s practical wisdom and guidance.

We trust John-Michael to help us navigate through life’s greatest challenges and I have no doubt that he is equipped to steer this ship for Madison.
