Founder of Daidone Electric Inc. based in Newark.  The company has completed some of the most complex transportation projects improving the lives of millions of commuters each day traveling our roads, bridges, tunnels and trains safely and more efficiently.  Some notable projects include EZ Pass, Holland & Lincoln Tunnel traffic systems, PATH’s Computerized Train Control Systems, and the electrical work at Ground Zero helping restore train service back to the World Trade Center after 911.  Just as important as the work was to John, his real joy came from building a true FAMILY company, working alongside the multiple generations of family members and the people employed with the company for their entire careers.
