John Desmond


I was born and raised in Charlottesville, and graduated from James Madison University. My wife Debbie and I live in Albemarle County and have three grown children. For most of my professional life I was a partner in a group of companies that developed land and commercial and residential properties in central Virginia. I retired in 2011 and returned to the work force in 2012 as Vice President of Operations/CFO for the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity. I came to Christ Church in 2000. I’m currently in my second term as treasurer and have served previously on Vestry and on the Finance and Endowment Committees. Christ Church is my church home because of the consistent message of grace expressed with humility.
