John Steward, owner of SmokeJumpers, will manage the daily operations of the store. John has five years of experience in the retail clothing industry. After graduation with a B.A. in English from State University, John started as a sales associate with Hoffman Clothing, the largest local clothing store in Evansville. Within three years, he was promoted to evening manager for the store's Young Adult Section. John has been praised as an excellent manager who is particularly good with the youngest staff members.
