John Ruffo is a General Agent for the Knights of Columbus, serving Brother Knights and their families in eastern Connecticut. A member of the Knights of Columbus since 2008, John became a Field Agent in 2014. Born in South Lake Tahoe, California, and raised in San Jose, John married Joanna in 1998 and started their family in Dayton, Nevada. A few years later John’s work moved them to Lincoln, California, where he joined the Knights of Columbus. Some years later, living with his growing family back in Nevada again, John was in an 18-year career with PepsiCo when he received an email from the local General Agent looking for someone to work in his area as a Field Agent. By this time, John and Joanna had four daughters, Kayla, Megan, Emma, and Madison. Things were going well. Even with all that, John thought he should consider the job. “I prayed a lot and gave it a lot of thought. I was the sole provider for my family, so it wasn’t an easy decision,” said John. John’s leap of faith paid off. He became a Field Agent for the Order and he was very successful. John attained his Fraternal Insurance Counselor Fellow (FICF) designation, and is a member of the Supreme Knight’s Club, an honor reserved for the top insurance producers of the Order. A two-year qualifier for the annual incentive trip for the company’s top producers, John is also a member of the Million Dollar Round Table, an international organization that recognizes the top one percent of financial professionals. In 2016, John made another big career choice when he became a General Agent and moved his family across the country. “Again, I felt the call from Father McGivney as I decided to become the new General Agent in eastern Connecticut,” explains John. “I will work hard for my field agents and my members to grow the membership in my territory, while safeguarding members and their families with our superior insurance products.” Members who meet with John and his team of agents find them knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. “We are all passionately devoted to the overall financial wellbeing of Catholic families and in carrying out the vision of Father McGivney,” said John. “It is my personal goal to help all Catholic families protect what matters most.” He hopes that the many Catholic families that his agency has been entrusted with will be financially secure through the dedication and persistence of his agents, God’s grace, and the intercession of Father McGivney.
