Purple Heart Homes


Born, raised, and residing in Statesville, North Carolina, John Gallina made his first career move by joining the National Guard, then later becoming a General Contractor. He was deployed to Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom II, where he sustained combat-related injuries. Once he returned to civilian life, John refocused his career back to the construction industry before co-founding Purple Heart Homes in 2008, a nationally recognized 501(c)3 public charity. In his free time, John enjoys reading, working on classic cars, and spending time with his wife, Cori-Anne, and their three children. John is also a member of Western Avenue Baptist Church, Rotary International, and serves on a number of local charity boards, such as the Statesville Housing Authority.
