About John Luppo
John Luppo is a modern-day Miracle. He is a man who has endured substantial trauma, tragedy and overwhelming loss. Raised on the streets of the Bronx in an Italian, Catholic family he went on to become a very successful Wall Street executive in his early adult life. Unfortunately, Wall Street led him to living a fast life, including alcohol, drugs and gambling became the oxygen he breathed. John became more and more successful until his brother’s tragic death by overdose sent his life spiraling out of control and into rehab.
John stayed sober for 2 years, then the fast life of Wall Street got to him again. For the next 15 years, his life was a roller coaster. He made millions then lost it, had 5 houses, numerous engagements, and too many girlfriends to count. John came to his knees at 40 years old and finally got sober. For good.
After losing a close friend in recovery, John was inspired to launch a crusade with a documentary calledModern Day Miracles. Dedicated to his friend and brother, the movie is about recovery from the disease of addiction. He also included his childhood hero and MLB star, Darryl Strawberry, in the documentary. Their relationship turned into friendship and John eventually became Darryl Strawberry’s manager. As a result, the opportunity allowed John to travel across the United States, sharing his testimony in hopes of helping others.
John strives to make an impression on everyone he meets, from the homeless man on the street to the millionaire in the mansion. John has the privilege to frequently speak at prisons and schools to individuals about overcoming difficult obstacles. Through Luppo Ministries, John speaks out about the perils of addiction and the consequences that going down that road leads to. John is an entrepreneur, an evangelist and recovery advocate and has an amazing story to share with others.
