Mark Yanchek, Jr.

Mark graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2008 with a degree in business/technology education and was hired by the Rose Tree Media School District to teach technology at Springton Lake Middle School. In late April 2010, he was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma, a rare brain tumor. It was removed the following day with emergency surgery at Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. Since then, he’s adjusting to a new normal and staying positive!

Mark and his family are long-time members of St. John’s. He has served as the 3rd and 4th grade Sunday school teacher and in Vacation Bible School. He does a great job as our sexton!
