JDOG FISHTOWN, PA
JOHN DINAPOLI & BRETT CONNOLLY, OWNERS
My name is Brett Connolly, and I am a proud co-owner of JDog Fishtown. I was born and raised in South Jersey. I attended the University of Delaware and graduated with a degree in finance in 2007. Although I did not serve in the military, I deeply appreciate the sacrifices and selflessness of those that have served and actively serve today.
My paternal grandfather was a ball turret gunner in B-24 bombers during WWII. He would always share his stories with me and my brothers, and during Veterans day he would speak at my high school. He was very active in honoring the Tuskegee Airmen for decades after the war due to his unique experience with them during a nearly fatal mission. My paternal grandfather served with distinction in WWI, and we still have his uniform and medals.
I became a member of the JDog family after my father-in-law, and new business parter, Brigadier General (ret.) John DiNapoli, came to me with the opportunity. He introduced me to Jerry and Tracy Flanagan following a veterans networking event, and I was excited from the start. I am proud to be a part of an organization that honors and provides opportunities for veterans to be successful in business and beyond.
When I am not in the JDog truck and serving my customers, you can find me at home with my wife, Dr. Megan Connolly, and our dog Buster. We enjoy cooking together, hosting friends and family, and traveling whenever we get the time. I am an avid golfer, bike rider, and craft beer fanatic. I am a diehard Philadelphia sports fan, and we hold season tickets for the Flyers.
I am beyond excited to serve the junk removal needs for Northern Philadelphia stretching from Germantown to Fishtown and up through Oxford Circle. Go JDog!
My name is John DiNapoli, I was born and raised in South Jersey. After graduation from Gettysburg College I went on to serve 7 years in the US Army as a helicopter pilot on active duty I flew cobras and scouts for the 101st Airborne Division. I continued my career in the military with the NJ Army National Guard. After commanding at the company, battalion and brigade levels, I retired as a Brigadier General in January 2016 after more than 34 years of service.
While in the NG, I also spent more than 25 years in healthcare, a majority of that time with pharmaceutical companies including 13 years with GlaxoSmithKline, right here in Philadelphia. In 2012, along with my wife Margie, we created the consulting firm, Spencer Ryan LLC focusing on leadership training and development of managers and executives. In addition to developing leaders, I have become a keynote speaker on leadership and motivational topics. I am also an Adjunct Professor at Rutgers and Monmouth Universities.
This year after developing a relationship with the JDog team, partnering with my son-in-law Brett Connolly, we decided to purchase a franchise in Northeast Philadelphia. Margie and I have been married 35 years and are thrilled to be working with JDog to offer more Veterans an opportunity to transition to a great career.
In addition to Brett and my daughter Megan, a pediatrician at St. Christopher’s Hospital, I have a son Jason, who is a Captain (JAG Officer) in the US Army. He is currently serving in Ft. Bliss, TX and along with his wife Kaitlin are raising our two grandsons Johnny (3) and Luke (1).
