THOMANN--John, died on July 4, 2015. The people of Turner Construction Company are deeply saddened at the loss of their colleague John Thomann. John, a leader in the construction industry in New York, served as vice president and general manager of Turner's Interiors group in New York for the past ten years. John, who was diagnosed with cancer six years ago, is survived by his wife, Kathleen, daughter Jacqueline and son James. Upon graduation from Manhattan College in 1987, John joined Turner Construction Company in New York. Among his leadership roles at the company were as Superintendent, Purchasing Manager and Project Executive. Under his leadership, the New York Interiors group has long been recognized as one of the leading interiors contractors in New York. A native of Queens, he had a positive impact across New York City as he led the delivery of services to clients in the commercial office, retail, hospitality, sports and entertainment, education, and government sectors. John also made a difference through his leadership and support of community and industry organizations. John received the Victory Award for outstanding commitment to charitable giving from the Saint Dominic's Home, the Francis Award from the St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters for his outstanding charitable works, and the Progress of Peoples Achievement Award from Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens for outstanding leadership and commitment to creating secure homes in a caring community for low-income seniors and families, the disabled and formerly homeless. John's friendship, leadership, service and mentorship will be missed by all that knew him.
