D’Agostino, John #2020 *

Constantino “John” D’Agostino

John D’Agostino, born and raised in North Bay to Rocco and Angelina D’Agostino, is a graduate of Laurentian University with an Honours degree in Economics and Political Science. John obtained his Bachelor of Law at the University of Windsor and further obtained a Juris Doctor Degree at the University Of Detroit Mercy School of Law. John articled with the Toronto law firm, Loopstra, Nixon & McLeish before being called to the bar. John remained with Loopstra, Nixon & McLeish until 1997, practicing law primarily in the areas of corporate/commercial and real estate law. John returned to his hometown of North Bay to practice law for himself in April of 1997.

Upon John’s welcomed reintegration into our community, he immediately began investing in real estate in our City. Following in the footsteps of his parents, he purchased the building on the corner of Fisher and Oak Streets, with two other young entrepreneurs, who have also remained in North Bay, and proven to be valuable members of our community.

John also began to give of himself, recognizing how important community is, by not only volunteering his time and providing professional legal advice, but further providing financial donations to the Capitol Centre, Warriors of Hope, North Bay Area Arts Centre, North Bay and Area Community Foundation, One Kid’s Place, Coach 4 Food, North Bay & Area Business Centre, Air Base Property Corporation, Habitat for Humanity, and, of course, the Community Waterfront Friends, to name a few.

Not alone in John’s quest for a great community, his wife Cindie, son Adam, and daughter Dagmar are all heavily involved in almost every possible activity, sport, and club that North Bay has to offer; often not only as participants, but giving their time, energy and resources, following the example they observe in John each and every day.

On countless occasions, John has put the interests of many entrepreneurs, local businesses, neighbours, clients, and friends before his own, sacrificing so many things, so many times, always in the interest of others.

John has redefined “success”, primarily through his example and leadership. Profit is not at the top of his list, but family, friends and community are. John truly cares for his clients and the community in which he resides, and as a result, is successful.

Thank you, John, for being a part of our community, as a friend, a philanthropist, a mentor, a confidant and a leader.
