In John’s words, here is what is does now:

I love playing golf, watching baseball, and watching movies that make you think. I’m a successful professional speaker who balances a challenging schedule with spending time with my family. I also live with severe depression. With a supportive family, a good doctor, and the right medication, I am able to RISE ABOVE and live a full life and make a real contribution to my community. I am sharing my story because I want to get people talking about depression.
