John P. Marstrel – local business owner, US Marine

Newcomerstown resident John P. Marstrel recently won the E-8 Master Sgt. in the United States Marine Corps. John is the son of Paul and Kate Marstrel, lifelong villagers.

Except for the time he spent far away serving our country, John lived just outside of Newcomerstown. He is married to Jenna Welch Marstrel and has three young children, Colin, Jade and Connor.

John joined the United States Marine Corps after graduating from Newcomerstown High in 2001. His active service was from 2001-2006, during which time he rose to the rank of sergeant.

“John has always talked about joining the army since the fifth grade. My father was in the Navy in World War II, and his uncle Butch Maurer was a retired soldier, “said his mother Kate.” He thrives on the bills he was told. His father and I always knew he would join the army.
