John Cronin

Co-Founder, John's Crazy Socks


John’s Crazy Socks is a father-son social enterprise inspired by John Lee Cronin, a young man with Down syndrome, and his love of colorful and fun socks, or what he calls his “crazy socks.” Its mission is to spread happiness, and judging by the 200,000+ followers it has on social media and the videos that have been viewed more than 100 million times, it’s mission is taking hold. Every day, the crew shows what’s possible when you give a person with a differing ability a chance. Over half of JCS’s employees have a differing ability.
