John is CEO and owner of Kamps Propane. He attended Georgia Institute of Technology before founding his company in 1969. John grew up hunting pheasant, duck and deer with his father in California. His love of hunting has taken him to every continent where he has seen first-hand the many issues that local community members face in their daily lives. He joined Mzuri to make a difference in the best way possible.
In his words, “I’ve been involved in Mzuri for many years because of the hands-on projects they support. They have been very involved in African anti-poaching efforts as well as programs that teach agricultural skills to local villagers. They train youth in outdoor activities involving wildlife, fun and the shooting sports. There just aren’t many organizations like Mzuri.” John is also active with Safari Club International, Ducks Unlimited and the National Rifle Association. He and his wife, Jillian, live in Stockton, California.
