John Magnetta has been in the medical field for over six decades. His specialty areas include neuroanatomy and brain surgery.
He is renowned for his expertise in treating complex pituitary and skull base tumors, as well as for his leadership and collaboration with other esteemed Stanford colleagues across multiple disciplines.
John Magnetta has had a distinguished professional career. He founded Jerry’s Jewelers in Irondequoit and serves as its owner/operator.
He began his career in Naples, Italy, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather as a watch repairman. Subsequently, he relocated to Rochester, New York.
Magnotta also served in the Rochester Police Department and worked as a detective for a short time.
He was eventually arrested and extradited to Canada where, in 2012, Magnotta stabbed and dismembered Jun Lin – a Chinese international student – before sending her body parts around the world. In 2014, Magnotta was convicted of murder and sentenced to prison where he is currently serving a life sentence. Furthermore, Magnotta faces additional charges such as publishing obscene material and mailing such materials.
While serving as mayor, Carl Magnetta made sure to secure grants from both state and federal governments for projects such as Riverview Memorial Park’s spray park. According to Brackenridge Mayor Tom Kish, Magnetta “went above and beyond” what one might expect of him in his role as mayor.
It’s difficult to say exactly how much work Magnetta did for Tarentum since the Pennsylvania Borough Code does not stipulate what a mayor must or mustn’t do. But in the end, Kish said Magnetta achieved much for Tarentum by acting as its conscience and providing support to many residents. Furthermore, he advocated for Tarentum’s economic development – it was Magnetta who first proposed making Tarentum more competitive with other boroughs.
John Magnetta currently has a net worth of $5 million. He resides at 3650 Nantucket Ct in Boynton Beach FL and has lived there for 15 years; previously his residences included 2724 N Ocean Blvd in Fort Lauderdale and 2030 Fillmore St in Hollywood FL.
