Navy Ensign John R. Elliott may be gone but he’s certainly not forgotten. For the past 14 years, the Elliott family has dedicated their lives to carrying on his legacy. Truly a beloved son, brother, friend, mentor, patriot and hero; John’s unique personality touched the hearts of many and now in the wake of his death is saving lives across the country.
John was a graduate of the United States Naval Academy. In July 2000, while traveling home to New Jersey from Annapolis, Maryland he was killed in a head-on collision by a drunken driver.
