Joe LaFonte was born in Queens, New York and was raised in Bayville, a small beach town on the north shore of Long Island, New York. In high school, Joe played football, baseball, and wrestled. He graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston with a degree in Architectural Engineering Technology but realized that he had a desire to see a project come to life and started his career in construction. With 29 years of construction experience, Joe has spent the last 15 focused on high-end law firm and interior renovations in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
He currently lives in Purcellville with his wife of 23 years, Virginia and their three children, twins Cassandra and Cabrina, and Joseph. Joe is very involved in his local community as a Board of Director for the Greater DC Chapter of Kids Enjoy Exercise Now (KEEN), and a high school football and wrestling coach for Loudoun Valley High School.
