John Van Huystee

I began my journey with SJCOE back in 2014, when I became an Instructor for Building Futures Academy. Since that first brisk winter morning when I experienced the relationship between the BFA campus and the Stockton Maritime Museum, with the renovation project of the USS LUCID Navy Minesweeper, I knew I had found my “Dream Job”.

I have lived in Stockton for about 16 years, originally from the Bay area. I have been married to my best friend for 30 years, and have raised two wonderful young men.

I have been in the construction field for over 25 years. To be able to share my construction knowledge, hands on and life skills with the students of BFA and many volunteers, is truly a blessing.

I look forward to the years ahead as we continue to make a difference.
