John and his wife Karen are from Western Pennsylvania but were introduced to Savannah a little more than 30 years ago when he took over as CFO at Memorial Medical Center. His career in Healthcare management transferred him back to PA where he eventually transitioned to the financial industry.
For over twenty years, John started and ran his own financial planning company, Evans Advisory Services, Inc. in Erie PA. He always promised his wife they would return to Savannah, and in 2014 purchased their home here in The Landings. John’s wife, Karen, has a Ph.D. in Cognitive Learning and has taught at numerous universities in Pennsylvania and Savannah. They have two grown daughters; Elizabeth Evans is a Colonel in the U.S. Army serving in the Florida National Guard and Katherine Evans is a Project Team Leader for The Entergy Company in New Orleans.
