Meet John Lee Cronin



Wearing crazy socks and spreading happiness is John Lee Cronin's true passion. At the age of 21, after graduating college, John told his father, Mark Cronin, he wanted to sell fun, colorful socks because they will make people happy. So he named his business John's Crazy Socks! John and his father now have a successful business together. But it turned out to be more of a mission. John, a young man with down syndrome, demonstrates what people with intellectual disabilities can accomplish and gives back 5% to Special Olympics. As a business, they offer a wide variety of beautifully designed socks, delivered fast, with a personal note from John along with a little candy. Plus, he puts a smile on every customer's face!
