John Kerr grew up along the upper Hudson River, went to good schools, had three wonderful children, and worked happily for decades as the main fundraiser for WGBH, Boston’s public television & radio station.
At 65, he shifted to entirely new work as a seasonal Park Ranger/EMT in Yellowstone National Park and is currently living his dream.
John’s a great example of what life can be like when you refuse to slow down.

Sue DeMarco – Love this. What a great story. He’s absolutely right—and an inspiration to us all.
Elise Katz – Thanks for sharing that. It was really nice to hear him talk about his previous life, and his new work.
Deborah Gibbs – John was a special friend and colleague to those of us who were fortunate to work along side of him at GBH. What a wonderful “after the gold watch” he has found for himself.
Louise Knapp Page – Wonderful to see & hear him once again. Always comfortable on camera and never seeming to grow any older!
Mark Duffield – Wonderful! A man who distinguished himself indoors, he was always a person with many interests and now one of his interests, conservation, has captured him and that is a good for all who treasure…the outdoors.
Sue DeMarco – Mark Duffield Well put.
Chas Norton – Wonderful – full of wonder!
Dick Heller – Bravo, John!!
Debra Ashton – My first boss at WGBH in 1978. 👍
