A little about J-P ...

John-Pierre, Jr. ("J-P" to his family and friends) works for a contractor at the Goddard Space Center in Greenbelt, Maryland in the security field. Like his brother, he plays guitar and has a number of interests. He attended Howard County Community College for a short time but decided he didn't really have his heart in it. In the Fall of 2009, J-P and the love of his life, Meredith Grace Poehlman, bought a home together in Pasadena, Maryland. And, I must say, he's done more work on his own house than we could ever get him to do in his first 24 years! When he has children, I hope he has better success getting them to mow the lawn or clean up their rooms than we ever did with him!

On bended knee, J-P proposed to Meredith on the 23rd of April 2011 and she accepted! J-P and Meredith were married on the 16th of June 2012 in a beautiful ceremony at Overhills Mansion in Catonsville, Maryland. They honeymooned for a week on a cruise provided by J-P's grandmother, Elaine Bacinski.

J-P is probably the gentlest, kindest, and most compassionate man you will ever meet. Paula's daycare kids love him ... they are naturally drawn to him just as dogs sense kindness in a stranger. He is our 'gentle giant'.

He generally keeps a smile on his face and is always ready to help friends and strangers alike. He is very talented and has a natural comedic wit about him. Don't ever get in a verbal sparring bout with him because you will almost surely lose! J-P writes poems as well as his own musical compositions. As of May 2015, J-P has a new job as a locksmith. Quite a talented guy!
