John Del Prete
Signature DIning Services Director
John Del Prete was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1984. He was raised by his father and spent much of his early childhood playing little league baseball. He went to Canyon Del Oro High School where he started his culinary journey in 1998 by taking culinary arts classes and started working part-time at Mama’s Pizza. He then moved on to work at a few local restaurants building up his culinary repertoire. He has worked everything from local pizza joint to fine dining. In 2009, he took a job just south of Tucson at a country club in Green Valley where he met his wife. They were married in 2011 and he left to Norfolk, VA where his wife was stationed in the Navy. Chef John continued to learn as much as he could from the few places he worked while in Virginia. Him and his wife started a family in 2014 and decided to move back home to Tucson to be closer to family.
Within two weeks, he had found a job working as a cook at an assisted living community. He was welcomed by many members of the community and wanted to make things the best for them as he could. His passion and devotion to give back was reflected into his work and he was promoted to Sous Chef. When an opportunity to continue his learning and development as a chef arose, he took the position as Sous Chef at Quail Park. With over 20 years of culinary experience, he looks forward to serving this community to the best of his ability. The satisfaction of providing for those who have long contributed to the world has solidified his commitment to serving in assisted living communities. He enjoys spending spare time getting to know the history of those who came before him and hearing their stories to share with his family and friends.
Some of Chef John’s favorite past times are playing with his two wonderful boys (aged 3 and 6), participating in outdoor activities (such as fishing, hiking, and sight-seeing) with the whole family, talking all things sports with his dad, and playing video games with his wife.
